Vegan Buckwheat Miso Wakame Soup – Macrobiotic & Vegan Diet

Vegan Buckwheat Miso Wakame Soup – Macrobiotic & Vegan Diet

After a year of listening to my nutritionist and naturopath friends bragging about how good the Macrobiotic diet is and how it saved George Ohsawa’s life when he got tuberculosis and a lot of others’ lives with their chronic diseases. So, I decided to read up about the Macrobiotic diet and give it a go. Buckwheat and sea vegetables have been my essential food list for a few years and they are in this diet ay! :)

And here, you go. My first Macrobiotic meal which is very suitable for a vegan diet as well – Double-winner!!! :)
