Macrobiotic eating isn't just about changing what you eat; it's about changing how you think. The macrobiotic diet emphasises the importance of eating seasonally and locally, which usually means eating fresher produce and more natural ingredients. This also hones your label-reading skills.

Hot tip: local produce isn't always cheaper. Believe it or not, shipping garlic from Mexico or asparagus from Peru is actually pretty cost effective, but it's probably not as fresh.
