Bye Bye Booze…. But Not Tonight

Posted by admin

Another temptation that is winning is alcohol! Jabie and I are forever trying to completely quit drinking to no avail. I was doing so well yesterday and today until he suggested we split a bottle of red wine tonight. I personally have no problem with drinking red wine. I don’t looooove it, so I rarely have much. It is the perfect drink in moderation for me. I like that unlike a mixed drink, like margaritas, you know you are getting the exact same amount of alcohol in each glass. And I am not gobbling up all that sugar.

The macrobiotic diet isn’t about forbidding any certain food, but I think it is safe to say daily drinking isn’t recommended. Our goal is to save the red wine for our date nights and special occasions as opposed to keeping alcohol in the house. Baby steps!

PS I love that this bottle says Loma on it, since that is our nickname for our little girl.

A macrobiotic diet is a dietary regimen which involves eating grains as a staple food supplemented with other foodstuffs such as local vegetables, avoiding the use of highly processed or refined foods and most animal products. :”.’`

The word “macrobiotic” comes from Greek roots and means “long life”. The macrobiotic diet and philosophy were developed by a Japanese educator named George Ohsawa, who believed that simplicity was the key to optimal health. -
