Jessica Porter is a macrobiotic chef, cooking instructor, and hypnotist. She completed her macrobiotic training at the Kushi Institute in Beckett, Massachusetts. She insists that eating well, and eating consciously, is the single most transformative thing you can do in the world. It's not just about "being healthy", it's about EVERYTHING. If you've ever wondered "What the heck is macrobiotics?" you've come to the right place. Her goal in writing The Hip Chick's Guide to Macrobiotics was to answer that question for all the hip chicks who have heard about this strange diet, but need to get the nitty gritty.
