Book Review: The Longevity Kitchen by Rebecca Katz

Disclosure: Special thanks to Blogging for Books for providing a review copy. 

Don’t we all want to live not just longer, but healthier lives?

Culinary nutrition pioneer and author Rebecca Katz poses this question in her latest book.

The Longevity Kitchen by Rebecca Katz

The answer is easy. Delicious food doesn't have to be healthy, and likewise, healthy food doesn't have to be bland. In The Longevity Kitchen, Katz presents more than 100 recipes that combine nutrition wisdom and superb flavor, with an emphasis on the top 16 foods proven to fight the most common chronic conditions.

The recipes are easy to follow, with ingredients you'll find at your local supermarket. My fave recipe in the book is the Roasted Asparagus Salad with Arugula and Hazelnuts - perfect for the holidays! The Minted Guacamole with Pomegranate Seeds is another great holiday option, bringing up your standard guacamole a healthy, tasty notch. The Insanely Good Chocolate Brownies turns regular brownies into a much healthier desert option.
Katz draws on the latest scientific research to explain how super foods such as asparagus, basil, coffee, dark chocolate, kale, olive oil, sweet potatoes, and wild salmon can build immunity, lower cholesterol, enhance memory, strengthen the heart, and reduce your chances of developing diabetes and other diseases.

There are also ideas for creating menu plans to address specific symptoms, as well as ideas for everyday meal plans that are easy and packed with foods that promote a long and vibrant life.

Check out the book trailer below. The Longevity Kitchen is available now at your local independent bookseller.
