Soramame aims to provide all those people who are worn out from work, have their hands full raising children, were never very good at cooking and are busy with life, with easy and simple tips for a macrobiotic diet from Australia.
A macrobiotic diet has been popular among people who are interested in their own health but many still think ‘It is good for the health but to take on the yin-yang system sounds too difficult’, ‘Working full time won’t allow me to spend time in the kitchen’, ‘It’s too difficult to do intricate cooking when the children are small’, ‘But I have a partner who loves meat’, and ‘It’s hard to get those ingredients in Australia’. For all those reasons they are unable to learn about the diet.
But don’t worry! If you can change your frame of your mind a little, you can cook simple, healthy and hearty meals based on a macrobiotic diet. And your body will be healthier from inside to out by just eating those meals. Isn’t that wonderful?

Soramame is COVID-19 aware This means that this teacher won't run this class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant government restrictions (e.g. maximum number of guests).

Loved it! We made a variety of healthy vegan dishes for a warm-weather version of a Japanese new year's menu. Keiko was a great teacher, showing us how to prepare each dish and explaining the less familiar ingredients. Once everything had been prepared, we arranged the food in lacquered boxes, then sat down to enjoy it together. We received the recipes to take home as well as some great information about the health benefits of the different ingredients we used in the class. I had a wonderful time and I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for future classes with Keiko!
