Up-Market Restaurants Spur Revival of Macrobiotics in LA

April 22, 2009: 12:39 PM EST
The macrobiotic diet is making a comeback, spurred on by its embracing of several key “healthy eating” trends, including whole grains, eating locally and seasonally, and avoiding or minimizing meat, dairy, and refined sugar. Restaurateurs who are making over the traditional and somewhat stodgy macrobiotic fare of a plate of cooked whole grains with a minimalist topping of vegetables and beans are spurring the revival. Several new macrobiotic themed restaurants have opened recently in Los Angeles, spearheaded by movie star Gwyneth Paltrow’s private chef, Lee Gross.
