Love this! Have recently been exploring the macrobiotic lifestyle and absolutely loving it, but breakfast is one of the more challenging aspects of it, i am loving having miso soup in the mornings, followed by rice and tofu, or some apple & rice flake porridge, but also loving the millet recipes here! will definitely have to try them, thank you for sharing :) i've recently started up a little blog about a journey of healing emotions and the body through food and most of it, if not all is veggie and vegan, love that stuff of cooking so much!!! anyways keep up the good beautiful inspiring work :) love xx
