Hipchick's Guide to Macrobiotics

Welcome

If you've ever wanted to feel fantastic, look gorgeous and sparkle with vitality, you've come to the right place. My goal in writing The Hip Chick's Guide to Macrobiotics was to empower hip chicks like you to experience delicious, sexy, radiant health.

These days, with muffins, cappuccinos and microwave dinners making up our daily fare, we're eating in a way that actually weakens our bodies and minds over time. When we end up depressed, or anxiety-ridden, we're told it's all in our heads, when very often, it's all on our plates.

But don't worry. You don't have to go full-throttle granola. You won't have to trade in your Jimmy Choos for a pair of Birkenstocks. Ever. If you are in good health, you can try this and that, just dipping your toe into the world of whole foods. You don't need to make major changes too quickly—I didn't. Just get the book, read some philosophy, and make a Rice Crispy Treat. You'll see that macro foods can be delicious and satisfying. As you explore more and more, de-sludging your body and mind, you will find a deeper, hipper, more authentic you—looking extra hot in your Jimmy's!

Whole foods, cooked certain ways, will strengthen every cell of your body. And where your body goes, so go your heart, mind and spirit. I believe to be hip is not about the clothes you wear, or the parties you attend (although I love that stuff). I believe that true hipness comes from a deep desire to be totally free, ridiculously alive, and pathetically endorphin-addled. The highest degree of hip comes from the ability to go into the kitchen and come out a stronger, saner, more beautiful person. You have MUCH more power than you know. It's time to get hip to it.
