Eating well doesn’t mean sacrificing the foods you love for satisfying, great-tasting meals. FoodTrients, originated by Grace O, is a unique program supported by current research that positions food as an anti-aging strategy for achieving sustainable health. A FoodTrient is her name for the natural anti-aging properties of food. The follow-up to The Age GRACEfully Cookbook, The Age Beautifully Cookbook provides readers with one hundred-plus recipes that promote health and well-being for a joyful and sustainable life. The recipes are built on the foundations of modern scientific research and ancient knowledge of medicinal herbs and natural ingredients from cultures all around the world.
There are many books about superfoods and supplements, but few provide at-a-glance guides in each recipe detailing key ingredients and how they increase health and longevity. Grace O’s cookbook focuses on eight categories of FoodTrients that are essential to healthful living:
Antioxidant: Prevents and repairs oxidative damage to cells caused by free radicals. Anti-Inflammatory: Reduces the inflammation process in cells, tissues, and blood vessels, helping to slow aging and lower the risk of long-term disease. Disease Prevention: Reduces risk factors for common degenerative and age-related diseases (such as cancer and diabetes). Immunity Booster: Supports the body’s resistance to infection and strengthens immune vigilance and response. Mind: Improves mood, memory and focus. Beauty: Promotes vibrant skin and hair, and helps keep eyes healthy Strength: Builds strength for bones, muscles, and joints. Increases bone density, and builds and repairs tissue. Weight Loss: Encourages improved metabolism and digestion.
These beautifully illustrated recipes incorporate all the ingredients you need to look and feel younger on the inside and outside.
The Age Beautifully Cookbook was named the Gourmand World Cookbook 2016 National winner in the Innovative category.
