Why eat your meal out a bowl?
The idea of eating your meal out of a bowl is based on the macro bowl, which in turn was inspired by a discipline called Macrobiotics, a healthy way of eating based on Japanese principles and Chinese medicine, and it has gained popularity especially in large cities such as New York and Los Angeles. The Macrobiotic Diet provided some of the principles to many dietary trends such as vegetarian, South Beach, and even Paleo.
What is Macrobiotics and the Macrobiotic Diet?
The philosophy behind Macrobiotics is for people to balance themselves with the natural world through food. According to this Japanese tradition, each meal is a combination of grains, vegetables, beans or fish, and fermented foods. Furthermore, macrobiotics teaches that eating any processed food moves us further from this sought balance. The idea of serving a meal in a bowl is just for the convenience purposes.
