Overview

A modern girl’s guide to the secrets of eating for health, beauty, and peace of mind.


"Part Joan Rivers, part Mahatma Gandhi, Jessica Porter makes macrobiotics meaningful, hilarious, and totally life-changing."


Simon Doonan, creative director, Barneys New York and author of Wacky Chicks


Heralded by New York magazine as one of the city’s most popular diets, macrobiotics has become the latest trend in dieting, thanks to high-profile supporters like Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow.


Speaking to the generation of young women looking to extend their healthy lifestyles beyond yoga and Pilates, macrobiotic chef and instructor Jessica Porter offers fresh, contemporary, and accessible insight into one of the world’s most popular diets that is based on century’s old principles. She explains that through the right balance of food, women can find balance in every aspect of their lives—improved health, weight loss, or fulfilling relationships.


The effects of eating a macrobiotic diet can extend beyond basic health to weight loss, beauty, better sex, and peace of mind. Cooking tips and recipes are combined with Jessica’s no-nonsense philosophy and witty anecdotes to create a lifestyle book that will inspire women to hit the kitchen with an understanding of how to strengthen their mind and body through food.

    a great choice

    This book changed the way I look at food and the world. It encompasses so much more than just nutrition. On top of the fact that it is very funny, realistic, and has great recipes, I highly recommend it.

    A thorough, well-organized and entertaining book

    As a beginner to the macrobiotic lifestyle, this book was like my bible (though much easier to read)! Porter incorporates humor and staight-talk to cover all topics important to women's health and well-being. A very fun and informative read for anyone interested in macrobiotics.

    Great book - exactly what you'd expect

    This is a great book if you're looking for a primer in macrobiotics that isn't too formal. Porter writes with a lightness, but she also includes really helpful details with her recipes. If you're new to a macro lifestyle, then this is the book for you.

    Also, I've tried almost all of the recipes and they always come out - she doesn't include too many hard to find ingredients and gives you substitution suggestions. She also goes light on the oil, which I appreciate.
