I have a such a fun giveaway for you guys today!
The Healthy Mind Cookbook is the latest cookbook from Rebecca Katz and Mat Edelson, and it’s quickly becoming my new favorite source of inspiration. If you don’t know Rebecca’s work, you need to (check out her stunning site here)!
I met Rebecca in 2009 when I worked at The Center for Mind-Body Medicine to help produce their Food As Medicine trainings. Rebecca is the chef extraordinare for CMBM, and an integral part of the trainings. Not only is she a whiz in the kitchen, but she’s kind and funny, too – a joy to be around and learn from.
Needless to say, I love her recipes and have every single one of her cookbooks.
Imagine how thrilled I was to learn that she (and her partner-in-crime and my former amazing colleague and friend-for-life, Jo Cooper) would be sending me a copy and gifting two of my readers with a signed, personalized copy! AND, she’s also sharing some of her recipes with us — scroll down for more.
As with Rebecca’s others cookbooks (The Longevity Kitchen and The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen are my faves), The Healthy Mind Cookbook is filled with mouthwatering recipes, vibrant pictures, and lots of YUM. Rebecca uses the latest research to identify the foods that can improve the brain’s ability to control cognition, emotion, and physical function – and translates it into the kitchen –
The Healthy Mind Cookbook: Big-flavor recipes to enhance brain function, mood, memory, and mental clarity
Here are a few of the recipes I can’t wait to try:
Orange Salad with Olives and Mint
Roasted Ginger Salmon with Pomegranate, Olive, and Mint Salsa
Turkish Lamb Sliders
Thai it Up Steak Salad
Raspberry, Lemon Zest, and Vanilla Muffins
Tomato, Mint, and Fennel Vinaigrette
Campfire Style Seasonal Fruit Fondue with Chocolate
and the list goes on!
A few of my favorite features of The Healthy Mind Cookbook:
- The focus on using whole, clean, real food — and the abundance of gorgeous produce within each and every one of the 120 recipes;
- The comprehensive Culinary Pharmacy section, full of 80+ ingredients and the notes on roles they play in helping memory, mood, sleep, energy, and more;
- Helpful tips through out, including ‘make it ahead strategies’, ‘kitchen clarity’, and ‘reducing recipe reading anxiety’; and
- Really, the entire book is an outstanding repository of science-based brain-supporting nutrition facts.
So, I highly recommend this book – for yourself or for others. My mom and I love to give Rebecca’s books as thank you gifts or hostess gifts and always receive rave reviews!
