She had always been funny, in that sarcastic and sometimes biting kind of way.
When an eating disorder led her from New York University’s graduate school in
acting to a macrobiotic cooking class, Jessica Porter amused herself during
classes she found tedious by thinking up jokes, calling her milk-shake fantasies
“macrobiotic porn.”She had no idea that soon she would abandon milk
shakes, caustic humor and her acting career to teach – with humor – how grains,
plants and pulses can transform bodies and souls. Macrobiotics, a primarily
vegan diet and philosophy that seeks to balance the properties of foods with the
person and his or her environment, does not have to be dogmatic or somber. In
fact, it can even be fun and funny, she says.
