Book Review: The Longevity Kitchen Cookbook

Ipomoea_batatas.jpg

Finally, a cookbook that offers gorgeous, tasty, easy to follow recipes featuring all the anti-aging power foods we love.

5/5 Stars

While I was working in the Caribbean, I met a lovely woman named Caroline Nation. The former publisher of W Magazine, Caroline had left the fashion publishing world and entered into the world of nutrition with her fabulous nutrition site, My Food My Health (use code "Lynda" to receive 15% off your first order).

We remained in contact, and a few weeks ago we met for tea and she handed me a copy of The Longevity Kitchen: Satisfying, Big-Flavor Recipes Featuring the Top 16 Age-Busting Power Foods [120 Recipes for Vitality and Optimal Health] cookbook, which is written by My Food My Health consulting chef Rebecca Katz, along with Mat Edelson (the pair behind The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen).

With a forward from health guru Dr. Andrew Weil, this beautiful book offers recipes for all occasions and times of day. There are great soups, appetizers, breakfasts, and even desserts. The recipes feature different combinations of power foods like asparagus, basil, blueberries, dark chocolate, kale, olive oil, sweet potato, thyme, and yogurt.

While The Longevity Kitchen is organized like most cookbooks, by meals, there is also an index that categorizes the recipes by health benefits.

Need some immune boosting? Try Chicken Tortilla Soup and Carrot Apple Slaw with Cranberries.

Under too much stress (like most of us)? Here come Sweet Potato and Zucchini Pancakes and Sweet Potato Bars to the rescue.

Enhance your memory and brain power with Golden Roasted Cauliflower aside some lovely Wild, Wild Salmon Burgers.

Blood sugar out of control? Even things out with Smoked Salmon Nori Rolls and Sicilian Green Beans.

You will also find Flexibility Promoters, Liver Boosters, Heart Strengtheners, Skin Enrichers, and LDL Cholesterol Reducers.

A well written and presented cookbook full of great information, beautiful photos, and easy to follow recipes that turn out well. Just a well done book!
