Low-Acid Eating: The Best of Macrobiotic,

Vegan, and Raw

On June 28, Holistic Nutritionist (Diet Counselor, Nutrition Educator) and Cookbook Author Meredith McCarty will speak onLow-Acid Eating: The Best of Macrobiotic, Vegan and Raw. Eating to balance your pH to slightly alkaline is a fascinating journey of self discovery. Macrobiotics is based on the values of proportion and balance for health and longevity. Macrobiotic teacher Herman Aihara's book, Acid & Alkaline, is a classic in the field. Learn how to make delicious and digestible cooked, as well as raw, sprouted and fermented foods. Learn which whole grains are the most alkaline forming, which sea salt is most mineral-rich, and how to reformulate your favorite dressings with significantly less fat.

Meredith became involved in macrobiotics in the 1970s, and worked as an Associate Editor for Natural Health magazine and a co-Director of the East-West Center for Macrobiotics in Eureka. She has written three very popular cookbooks: American Macrobiotic Cuisine, Fresh From a Vegetarian Kitchen, and the award-winning dessert cookbook Sweet and Natural. Meredith studied macrobiotics with Michio and Aveline Kushi and with Herman and Cornellia Aihara in the 1970s. She has a Senior Certificate in the Art of Cooking from the Kushi Foundation. She is an associate of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and has worked in educational programs with Drs. Benjamin Spock, Dean Ornish, John McDougall and Neal Barnard. Visit
