Macrobiotic food promotes a healthy lifestyle

According to the International Macrobiotic Conference held in 2017, the term macrobiotic comes from the ancient greek: Macro meaning large or long and Bios life or way of living. It is a way of life that guides one’s choices in nutrition, activity and lifestyle. It is also a system of principles and practices of harmony to benefit the body, mind, and planet. 

A macrobiotic diet promotes a healthy lifestyle that is mainly made up of whole foods: vegetables, grains, sea vegetables and fermented foods. It discourages the intake of simple carbohydrates, processed sugars and fast food.

In all, the macrobiotic lifestyle promotes a healthy and balanced diet that may help to avoid disease, promote healthy habits and improve overall health.

And remember, to be healthy you don’t need to become macrobiotic, paleo or vegan. You just need to have healthy habits, decrease the intake of processed foods and be more mindful of what you eat. Take what you like from each type of healthy diet and apply it to your life. Make it work for you, adapt it to your lifestyle and enjoy it!
