Food

Cuisine

Sunny Brow's cuisine is dedicated to organic whole foods, unprocessed and nutritious, without compromising on taste or culinary beauty. The great taste and simple energy of wholesome ingredients gives you so much more to experience in the cooking and eating.

Suzy, Sunny Brow's chef, has a passion for healthy eating and works using macrobiotic principles and nutritional super-foods. She uses fresh, unprocessed foods, energetically balanced, so the body can get back to, and remain, in balance and good health.

At Sunny Brow, animal produce eating is limited; they mainly eat food from organic plant sources, such as fruit, vegetables, seeds, beans and pulses, and whole grains.

The food is prepared with awareness on cooking styles, combining many varieties, such as steaming, baking, pickling, pressing, stir-frying, and pressure cooking. Refined foods are avoided, especially sugar, that have damaging effects on the body.

Beautiful deserts that are sugar free have a calmer effect on the body, allowing simple enjoyment and relaxation.

Macrobiotic cuisine

100% macrobiotic cuisine using yin and yang and the five elements can be provided. This diet's strength is in the fact that it can be designed for each of your individual needs. Modern macrobiotics can be a great way to either help balance the body after a serious illness, or to simply enjoy a richness and variety of cuisine to sustain daily life.

You can have the opportunity to experience exciting macrobiotic cuisine, or for deeper healing at the start of, or during, a macrobiotic healing diet.
