Macrobiotic and Vegan Recipes

The recipes you'll find here are 100% vegan and macrobiotic.

I use only natural unrefined sweeteners like maple syrup, brown rice syrup, agave nectar, and organic fruit juices. You'll also find that I am using whole grains other than wheat. Spelt flour, quinoa, amaranth are all delicious and add exciting variety to your pantries.  

Since vegan cooking and baking does not use any dairy you'll probably find some ingredients listed that you are not familiar with. Don't  worry! Have fun and explore using these vegan ingredients that are easier on your body and on the planet.
