44 things I love about living in Thailand:
#36. Amrita Garden Macrobiotic Restaurant
The Brilliance of Yin + Yang Food energetics ☯️ 〰️
Similar to the Ayurvedic principles of the rasa’s, knowing your inherent qualities (both fixed and changeable), guide you to food choices that best serve you:
Yin foods are wet and cold, whereas Yang foods are dry and warm.
In macrobiotic thinking, it is believed that if we eat ‘whole’ foods that are in season and locally grown, that our bodies get the perfect ‘yin and yang’ qualities needed from the natural environment in which we live.
Some general guidelines for the Japanese-style macrobiotic diet are the following: 〰️
* Well-chewed whole cereal grains, especially brown rice: 40–60%
* Vegetables: 25–30%
* Beans and legumes: 5–10%
* Miso soup: 5%
* Sea vegetables: 5%
Macrobiotics teaches that when we harmonize with nature and our natural environment we experience strength, freedom, flexibility, and great happiness.😃 This restaurant has been one of my all time favorites living in Chiang Mai. The prices haven’t changed much in 5 years, and more and more macrobiotic delectables are added to their menu every year.
