MGI's newest project, The Soybean Solution, explores a healthy, sustainable alternative to the increasing global domand for protein-rich foods and raises awareness about how replacing animal-based products promotes human and environmental health.
The project, filmed in Japan, the U.S.A., and Africa, focuses on how growing non-GMO, organic soybeans, traditional fermentation processes, and the health benefits of incorporating soy-based products into our diets. Along with the film, MGI brings The Soybean Solution to life by supporting a new soy company in Benin, Africa.

What MGI students are saying:
Level 2 was well organized, and a wonderful addition to my macrobiotic practice. Sheri, Patricio and Lorraine made a great team, as well as being excellent teachers. I have been practicing Macrobiotics for 35 years; this course helped me to refine my practice and expand my cooking repertoire. I looked forward to the topics covered each week, from an indepth lecture on yin and yang, to lifestyle practices, to global awareness and climate change. In addition, the recipes and cooking videos were top notch. I’ve tried most of them already, and enjoyed them with family and friends. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to feel more healthy, vibrant, and more in control of their own health, and hence their life!- - Anita D.
