I'm really starting to become more conscious about what I eat and how it affects me, and so I've been doing some research on the subject. I bought a couple books on nutrition and read this one this weekend. Well, "read" in the sense that I read the intro to the book and the sections, but I haven't read all of the recipes yet.

I think that this book has a lot of useful info and tips, and I especially liked the section which outlined the specific benefits of certain foods.

There's so much conflict
Admittedly I've only made three of the recipes in this book, but they were all winners. I like how Katz promotes the benefits of healthy food without calling other types of food "poison" or demeaning people who might eat them - something that turned me off of Sara Forte's The Sprouted Kitchen: A Tastier Take on Whole Foods almost immediately. The issue I have with this book is that a lot of the ingredients are quite costly - the alternatives to regular flour that she suggests are pretty pricey, ...more

Did you know that potatoes are good for your brain, nervous system, and thyroid? Or that by eating bell peppers you’re helping your eyes? The Longevity Kitchen presents the “Super Sixteen” – 16 foods that are the most beneficial and healthy to humans, and incorporates them in to delicious recipes. The authors, Rebecca Katz and Mat Edelson, start off each recipe with a quick, informative introduction of what nutrients and vitamins are present in the dish. The Longevity Kitchen is jam packed with ...more

I'm a pretty healthy eater (minus my wicked sweet tooth I am trying to keep in check), but I am always looking for good bits of information on how to incorporate more health into my (and my family's) life. And now that I am approaching my 40s (Gasp!), the idea of eating well to live a long, healthy life is my goal. Yes, I want to be able to fit in my jeans, but really what I want most is to be fit, strong, and energetic day in and day out. The Longevity Kitchen presents the “Super Sixteen” – 16 ...more

Lovely pictures, great suggestions yadda yadda yadda. However, the recipes have so many ingredients that I'm immediately turned off. I'm a less that 10 items in my recipe kind of girl as much as possible unless it is a special occasion. Way too much work for this working girl.
An impressive claim to be sure - by eating recipes from this book it can help combat and prevent chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, inflammation, arthritis and other ailments that will let you live longer, healthier lives.

Does it match up in reality? Well this reviewer is not a doctor and this is not medical advice - not that all doctors can agree on things anyway at times. Such advice is between you and your healthcare professional. That said, it is clear th

I don't know what I enjoy more-- my family's reaction to her 5-star recipes, the brilliant information I acquire in the reading, the truly gorgeous photographs, or the warm humor so typical of this remarkable chef / educator. It could be the feeling that she's right in the kitchen with me, sharing her healthy, top secret delights. I mean, there are even healthy brownies! My new go-to entertaining menu: Layered Frittata with Leeks, Swiss Chard & Tomatoes; any of her greens or salads, dependin ...more
I'll admit to having only made one recipe from this book, and it turned out quite well. There is a lot to commend here.

However, let's get one thing straight. If you think using the recipes in this book will "cure" whatever ails you as you age, take your head off, look at it, and say "I am your body. I am aging and you can't stop it. Thank you for feeding me well. But a cookbook and food alone won't cure me." Then, put your head back on, fill your pantry with some of the ingredients she suggests
This book is loaded with information regarding nutrition and eating for health. I loved it. I appreciate the links to the various studies backing up the information she uses. Very informative and easy to understand.
I went on a bit of a cookbook spree from the library, and I was very pleased with this book. Cost-friendly, easy to prepare meals that taste delicious, make you feel good, and promise health benefits.
The title sounds kind of gimmicky but it's a collection for some healthy, nice sounding recipes. Meat recipes in here, some others that have tons of steps. Nice pictures.
While there are some good recipes to be found, I didn't have great success with some I tried. Not bad, but nothing earth shattering

Based on the 16 Super Foods that have been proven to promote health and prolong aging, this book delivers on its promise to deliver "big-flavor recipes." Good food is very important to me; eating should be pleasurable. Admittedly, I am often willing to trade healthy choices for flavor, for deriving satisfaction from my eating experience. I am likely not to bake many of the sweets, but I will try the roasted asparagus and arugula salad, the chicken tortilla soup, the slaws and salsas, and much mo ...more
Well-intentioned, but dull.

This is a great cookbook. There is an inspiring introduction, giving eye-opening information about the health benefits of many foods, herbs and spices. The philosophy of the cookbook is to provide healthy recipes that are also delicious. The author succeeds unequivocally! All of the recipes that I've tried (and I've tried many) have been delicious!! And there is the additional benefit of knowing that they're very healthy too!
A worthy follow-up to Katz's Cancer-Fighting Kitchen cookbook. The recipes can be a little bit complex at times, but the end results are amazing (plus, once you've made one of the recipes a couple of times it's much easier -- it's mostly a matter of making sure you have the right herbs and spices on hand). Making healthy, healing food taste this good in my own kitchen is a joy.
I was looking for vegetable recipes that didn't use butter and still taste exceptional. This cookbook gave me what I wanted. It is well written/easy to follow and the veggies turn out really tasty in my opinion. Some of the ingredients can be found only in certain stores (like Whole Foods or the health food section at Kroger).
Another keeper from Rebecca Katz. I absolutely love her POV and recipes.
Love this idea, and if the recipes are good, it's a keeper!
Excellent recipes!
