The brain health kitchen Preventing Alzheimer's through food with 100 recipes

Annie Fenn

Book - 2023

"Scientific studies show that the choices we make today about what we eat help determine our mental health as we age. In The Brain Health Kitchen, Dr. Annie Fenn gives readers a guide to preserving cognitive ability through food, with 100 recipes to promote mental acuity. Fenn, a doctor turned chef, has organized the book into 10 chapters representing the most neuroprotective foods: berries, leafy greens, nuts and seeds, beans and lentils, whole grains, cruciferous vegetables, and more. Fenn walks readers through choices they can make to create a brain-friendly diet, like how to choose meats that will fuel instead of harm, how to understand the nuances between "good" and "bad" fats, and the difference between proces...sed sugars and natural sugars. Science bites throughout the book explain the research behind the facts. Eating for brain health also means embracing cooking methods that preserve the nutrition of the food, such as braising, steaming, and smoking. The Brain Health Kitchen includes recipes for every meal of the day-from Caramelized Apple and Quinoa Pancakes for breakfast to Glazed Citrus, Almond, and Olive Oil Cake for dessert. And because cooking for your brain health is not about restricting or dieting, anyone can embrace this way of eating, whether they're vegan or vegetarian, pescatarian, a meat lover, or gluten intolerant. Backed by scientific research and a true love for food, Fenn teaches readers to eat for brain health today, so that the mind stays sharp for tomorrow"--
