The Longevity Kitchen by Rebecca Lang – Book Review
One of my biggest goals for the upcoming year is to improve my nutritional health. I’m interested in learning more about foods that are considered nutritional powerhouses and the specific health benefits they offer. I’m interested in learning how to create healthy meals that taste fabulous. I’m interested in preparing good-to-eat desserts that are also good-for-you!
That’s why I’m so excited to add The Longevity Kitchen – Satisfying, Big-Flavor Recipes Featuring The Top 16 Age-Busting Power Foods by Rebecca Katz (with Mat Edelson) to my culinary library!
Like Rebecca’s previous book, The Healthy Mind Cookbook, The Longevity Kitchen takes the approach that your kitchen can serve as a culinary pharmacy.
The first three chapters of the book are dedicated to exploring the healing power of food and cover important topics such as:
- The Super 16 Foods That Offer The Highest Levels Of Antioxidants
- Foods That Fight Inflammation
- Recipes That Support Various Aspects Of Health And Wellness
- A Culinary GPS Questionnaire That Helps You Make The Most Of The Book
- Why Organic Food Matters
Of course, the heart of any cookbook is found in the recipes. The Longevity Kitchen contains over 100 recipes that were created for vitality and optimal health.
The recipes are complemented by the gorgeous photography of Leo Gong and will appeal to anyone who is serious about leading a nutritionally healthy lifestyle.
The Longevity Kitchen contains many useful features and lots of great reference material.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
