Interview In The Hot Tub - Macrobiotic Mum, Melanie Waxman

Please enjoy this interview that I gave for spabreaks.

Melanie Waxman is the type of mum you thought only existed in the pages of Cotswold kitchen catalogues - think earth mother with a hint of free spirit and a juxtaposing soupcon of city-girl spark.  Living close to Philadelphia she writes, cooks and teaches the art of macrobiotic living; but this isn't a woman promoting an inaccessible fad, Waxman lives by the practice she preaches and has proved its workability by raising her own children on the lifestyle - all seven of them!

Startling Facts about the Chemicals in Our Food

1. We now use about 10 lbs. of pesticides per year for every man, woman and child in the U.S.

2. Humankind is in danger of not being able to reproduce within 50 years; thereby creating the decline in population in unindustrialized nations, which would bring on an economic collapse.

3. Some foods, such as regular peanut butter, average over 10 different pesticides in one sample.

4. 110 out of 144 communities in Ohio have 4 or more herbicides and insecticides in every glass of water. These chemicals are not removed by water treatment such as chlorination.

Healthy School Lunches
For most parents mornings are a rushed affair. Preparing a healthy and tasty packed lunch that doesn't arrive at the end of the day squashed at the bottom of a book bag is a daunting task. With some careful planning, mornings can become a lot more relaxed and parents can go to work knowing they have provided a lunch that is satisfying and nourishing.
The Importance of the Family Meal
Michael and NicholasThe family meal, unfortunately, is disappearing fast. In all cultures, this timeless institution was recognized as a vital part of strong, stable family life. Eating together is the time when everyone can gather after a day hard at work or studying in school to share adventures and stories. Children learn a great deal by observing their parents.
