Ever feel like there are too many choices these days. How is anyone supposed to make sense of it all? How would you know, for example, that macrobiotics could be THE thing for you? Or for anyone?

What would a talk on kitchen management be without touching on what to cook? Well, the last part of Sheldon's fantastic series is all about that. He doesn't go into depth because there's just no way to harness all the macrobiotic knowledge into one article and would take away from your discovery journey. Nonetheless, he shares so great tips for breakfast and offers some general guidance for lunch and dinner.
