Eating for brain health? I’ll
drink eat to that! I was very excited to read this new cookbook from Rebecca Katz.
About the Book (from the website):
In The Healthy Mind Cookbook, Rebecca Katz has harnessed the latest research on the brain to identify the foods that can improve the brain’s ability to control cognition, emotion, and physical function—all of which dictate memory and mood. She then translates the very best of brain science into the kitchen, using delicious nutrient-dense foods as a tool for promoting a healthy mind from childhood through the golden years.
With a culinary pharmacy listing the benefits of key ingredients, complete nutritional details for each dish, and flavor-packed recipes for every meal of the day, including Avocado and Citrus Salad, Sweet Potato Hash, Turkish Lamb Sliders, and Chocolate Cherry Walnut Truffles, The Healthy Mind Cookbook will help lift the fog of everyday life so you can reach your full physical and mental potential.
Oh, my. The recipes look AMAZING. The pictures are absolutely beautiful. There are so many wonderful, delicious meal options, even for me with all of my dietary needs. I love that the author(s) include an introduction, explaining some of the science behind the book, without taking up too much time and space. It seems that a lot of health cookbooks are filled halfway with the science and reasoning, and then you’ve only got half a book left for a few recipes. This book provides information, but not overwhelmingly so, and the focus is on creating good recipes. I cannot wait to try some myself, especially the tonics and elixirs. Food-wise, I think the Quinoa Turkey Meatballs and the Meyer Lemon Pudding recipes will be the first that I try.
