Macrobiotic Centre of Toronto Organic Vegan Food

Our Kitchen

We love food:  thinking about food, talking about food, eating food,  learning new traditional ways to prepare food and watching closely as cutting edge science continues to corroborate macrobiotic tenets.  But mostly we love sharing what we know and what we make!

Our cozy space at Yonge and Lawrence is a resource for specialty macrobiotic products, cooking classes, and incredible prepared macrobiotic food to-go. We strive to make all of our food delicious, fresh, organic and nourishing.

About Macrobiotics

The quality of our health is primarily determined by our daily food choices (we literally are what we eat!) as well as our activities and lifestyle. Each day – through our choices – we can create or lose our health.  The term macrobiotic was first used by Hippocrates to describe people who were healthy and lived a long time. It is the Greek term for great life or long life. Other classical writers such as Aristotle used the term to describe a lifestyle,

including a simple, balanced diet, that promoted health and longevity.
