Wholefood Harmony and Anna’s teachings on macrobiotics have brought immense peace in my life. Being an Indian, I mostly followed a vegetarian ayurvedic diet. However, during my time as a student and professional, and while in England, I found it difficult to manage a balanced lifestyle. I felt confused whilst shopping for food and preparing meals.
With macrobiotics and the Pure Cook’s Training, I understand the wisdom of plant foods and am able to design healthy and balanced shopping lists, menus and meals. I now conduct workshops in New Delhi. Anna is a radiant and positive human being who lives her teachings. I feel very lucky to have met her.
1 cup amaranth flour
1 tblsp arrowroot
1 tblsp flax
1 tsp herbs – I like chives
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 tblsp olive oil
Mix dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl combine oil and water with a fork. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry, turning the flour. Mix until a firm ball. Oil a flat baking tray and roll out the dough until 1/8th inch thick using extra flour to prevent sticking. Cut to desired shape. Place in oven at 180C for around 8 minutes. Turn over and put back in oven for another 5 minutes.
