In the macrobiotic diet you eat grains, veg, beans and fruit mainly. Brown rice is readily available, but is it organic brown rice? What about other grains?
If you look at a macrobiotic recipe book there are many items that are not available in the supermarkets or local stores. Are there any suppliers prepared to deliver? If so please write a comment.

Santi Asoke are a Buddhist sect who are engaged Buddhists and mindful consumers. They have a community at Chatuchak where they have a good vegetarian restaurant and foodstore including organic veg. Check this blog entry for more details.
I rely on the Aden’s shop where I live. It is an organic food shop that caters to Cheewajit – Thailand’s macrobiotic diet. Unfortunately they are not everywhere, but where you find them they are an excellent source of healthy food. Sadly I have no response to individual requests from their website.
