This is my first week of macrobiotic eating and I’m very excited for it. I will be sure to keep you updated on my progress. What is your favorite cookbook? I think mine is this huge book called The Complete Asian Cooking Companion. That’s where I get all the ideas for my Asian meals.

The beets and chickpea burgers sound particularly delicious. Great menu. Good luck with your experiment!
Carrot soup with apples? Sign me up! Your menu looks delicious this week! 🙂
Oh wow, such a tasty week Maggie!
thanks for so much Maggie for sharing your week menu with us…. you know how happy I am reading them??? because I haven’t made mine yet and I really need to plan on that from now on…. so, this will be another inspirational place for me (besides of yoga workouts!).
I’ll write about black rice porridge in my next post for you! 😀
What a cool idea!
**Favorite cookbook = Veganomicon and The Eat-Clean Diet cookbook (for inspiration).
your menu makes me so hungry! i just became a vegetarian, so I am in desperate need of some inspiration!
I absolutely love cookbooks and have far too many of them, but I think my favorite is Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything, and his vegetarian version of that cookbook!
My favorite cookbooks are the Mark Bittman ones too! There’s one called “The Best Recipes in the World” and its all international stuff.
this looks so good! i can’t wait to hear how the week goes and how you feel.
i love love love the recipes in barbara kingsolver’s animal vegetable miracle.
Favorite cookbook…for me it is a favorite publisher…anything Moosewood. Good old fashioned, full of dairy, vegetarian cooking. Still have my first one — 28 year old Enchanted Broccoli Forest with no cover and in 6 pieces :^)
My favorite cookbook: all websites like allrecipes and myrecipes!
Looks like you’ve got a delish week ahead 🙂
Great idea! I look forward to seeing your delicious eats 🙂
jerk seitan? yummo!
Your menu looks great!
I think my favorite cookbook is the Weight Watchers Complete Cookbook. There are so many tasty recipes that don’t taste like “diet” food.
YUM! Thanks for sharing.
