I remember from my macrobiotic days that eating a tomato was almost 
suicide and the excitement when the buzz went that you could ´yangicise´ 
tomatoes. I remember that when I had diverted from my Osawa adoration I 
cooked some aduki beans and wakame and how the very taste brought back 
vivid memories of my old convictions. The definite sign of liberation 
for a Jew or a Muslim is the taste of bacon. Man ist was man iszt. You 
are what you eat.
