I’ve been trying macrobiotic recipes lately…Its really a wonderful way of eating….and inexpensive! Macrobiotics eat a lot of grains, beans and fresh vegetables. So, if your on a budget, look into macrobiotic, you’ll fell better and your wallet will too!

I found this recipe in “Modern-Day Macrobiotics” by Simon G. Brown He was taught by Michio Kushi, the American father of macrobiotics. I really like this book, it was very easy to read, very concise and it gives you different menu’s to try…there’s a revitalizing menu for both winter and summer, a 3 day detox cleansing menu, a 4 month healing menu…this will get you started on eating the macrobiotic way

Give this oatmeal a try – it really is good. I promise, you won’t go hungry all morning!

  • Steel cut oats with nori
  • 1 cup steal cut oats
  • 1/4 cup raisins, rinsed
  • 2 sheets tasted nori, cut into 1-inch strips
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  1. Wash the oats and soak overnight in 4 cups cold water
  2. In the morning, bring the oats and water to a boil in a covered pan. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  3. Add raisins and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Turn heat off and serve with the strips of nori, sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Okay, I know the thought of seaweed in your breakfast sounds gross, but nori is very nutritious, its full of iron, calcium, iodine potassium, and magnesium. And if that wasn’t enough…its also rich in  vitamins A,B,C, D,E and K. Oh and I did I mention protein? So don’t turn your nose up at seaweed, its very good for you!
