Question: I read in a macrobiotic book that potatoes and tomatoes are bad to eat. I wonder if you could tell me if this is true.Sri Chinmoy: From my own experience I know that one can safely eat any vegetable if one wants to. I assure you, there is nothing at all wrong with eating potatoes or tomatoes. The only important distinction is that between meat and vegetables.
