Chicks: Life Lessons from Fearlessly Inappropriate and Fashionably
“There is no right or wrong way to approach this book. One of the things I love about macrobiotics is that there is a food component and a philosophy component—theory and practice tucked side by side on your fork. You can start with your brain or with your belly. You may want to jump straight to a de-sludging diet tomorrow or just read some of the philosophy over brown rice and see what happens next. I believe that if you are intrigued at all by either the cooking or the theory, then your intuition will guide you like a benevolent dominatrix.”
