Shonali now brings Soulfood to India: Shonali Sabherwal, India's only practicing counselor, chef and instructor in macrobiotic, now brings to you her brand Soulfood (http://www.soulfoodshonali.com/) which is deeply embedded and has its roots in the Macrobiotic approach to lifestyle and diet. Macrobiotics is the biological and physiological application of Oriental philosophy and medicine (now Indianized by Shonali Sabherwal). It is not a diet; it is not a prescribed list of do's and don'ts that you struggle to stick to and then feel guilty about when you cannot fit it into your life. Macrobiotics endeavours to empower the individual with tools, to take control of their own lives and to make healthier lifestyle choices. It brings about an understanding and awareness in an individual for their day-to-day living needs viz-a-viz food and helps to make them independent.It thus enables them to exercise the right food and lifestyle choices, thereby, preventing disease and lifestyle-related ailments. The basics of the Soulfood approach are indicated by the pie chart below: whole grain (40%), Vegetable (25%), *extras (5%), fruit (5%), good quality fermented food (10%), beans and legumes (15%) - (For non-vegetarians, fish prescribed or dependent on health conditions). Foods to eliminate or minimize: Sugar, honey, artificial food, processed/packaged foods, all meats, dairy, refined oils, refined salt, ice cold food and drinks, alcohol, caffeine, drugs.
