This book is so important to me.

To have a healthy old age you must act now, whether you are 30 or 50.

I have two great passions – sharing my love of cooking delicious simple food and improving the health and nutrition of older people. I hope this cookbook does both but it’s not for ‘old’ people, it’s for you. I have been delighted to work with leading Alzheimer’s

I was very disappointed to see that Maggie is not up-to-date on the current results from studies that show there is no causation between saturated fats and cardiovascular disease.

And even more disappointed to see her blaming people with Type 2 diabetes for causing their diagnosis by poor lifestyle, food choices and lack of exercise. Whereas the research shows, and any GP worth their title knows, Type 2 diabetes is almost entirely a genetic condition. It can often be prevented from developing by

As stated by Maggie Beer, the author of this book, "To have a healthy old age you must act now, whether you are 30 or 50. I have two great passions – sharing my love of cooking delicious simple food and improving the health and nutrition of older people. I hope this cookbook does both but it’s not for ‘old’ people, it’s for you. My recipe for life is to have a healthy attitude to eating – it’s all about balance, variety and choosing foods that give you the best chance of being in good health now ...more

This is not just an excellent addition to Maggie Beer's range of fine cookbooks, but essential reading for those concerned about the debilitating effects of age-related disease, in particular Alzheimer's. Which should be all of us, not just those approaching or already in their senior years.
As Maggie says "to have a healthy old age you must act now, whether you are 30 or 50". To minimise our chances of contracting Alzheimer's and other diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and high blood

I was very disappointed with this book. Maggie has yet to catch up with the fact that sugar is a baddie and as a previous reviewer mentioned, that saturated fat is not. I also am not sure how an average older person living on a restricted budget could possibly afford the ingredients used in some of these recipes. I found the remark about people cutting out whole food groups very condescending and unempathetic. Some of us have no option but to do so. Wasn't worth the time I spent reading it.

This is honestly the most sensible health book I have ever read, backed by science and the recipes are amazingly delicious ... and quite easy... thanks Maggie
