A collection of more than 120 recipes formulated to optimize brain health, boost memory, improve mood, sharpen the central nervous system, and more.

Feed your mind. 

Depression, ADHD, memory loss, agitation: These may seem like inevitable byproducts of modern lives spent multitasking, not getting enough sleep, and operating on digital overload. But while much of the brain’s work still remains a mystery, a growing body of scientific evidence suggests that the food you eat directly affects how well your brain functions. Brain health also plays a significant role in staving off diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.

In The Healthy Mind Cookbook, Rebecca Katz has harnessed the latest research on the brain to identify the foods that can improve the brain’s ability to control cognition, emotion, and physical function—all of which dictate memory and mood. She then translates the very best of brain science into the kitchen, using delicious nutrient-dense foods as a tool for promoting a healthy mind from childhood through the golden years. 

With a culinary pharmacy listing the benefits of key ingredients, complete nutritional details for each dish, and flavor-packed recipes for every meal of the day, including Avocado and Citrus Salad, Sweet Potato Hash, Turkish Lamb Sliders, and Chocolate Cherry Walnut Truffles, The Healthy Mind Cookbook will help lift the fog of everyday life so you can reach your full physical and mental potential.

A must have! Rebecca Katz has outdone herself this time! The Healthy Mind is full of pages of recipes, including soups, desserts, main dishes and snacks that are accessible, doable, and delicious. (Not at all like the many cookbooks on my shelves that I turn to for one or two recipes.) All you need is a piece of salmon or cod and a bunch of kale, or some carrots. Being them home, pull out the book and you are set to go. No planning ahead required as the other ingredients are already in the pantry. Did I mention that the recipes are not time consuming? I made the simple scampi last night and it was delicious!

A Delicious Encore Performance This is Rebecca Katz at her best. Over the last decade she has been teaching me the simple and delicious lesson that food is powerful medicine. Each of her books has brought a genuine culinary consciousness into my kitchen and delivered digestible nuggets of science along with recipes that are as accessible as they are flavorful. Now she has applied her blend of nutritional savvy and a talent for vibrant flavor to the powerful idea that what and how we eat truly matters when it comes to how our brain works. I love the fact that she has moved from her initial books focusing on good food’s role in fighting and preventing cancer — to the even bigger ideas of its role in promoting longevity — and now to the truly delicious link she offers between emerging brain science and eating well. I think the real power behind The Healthy Mind Cookbook, as it has been in her earlier books, is her unique flair for distilling the useful science for us and delivering it with disarming touches of…

The authors of The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen have done it again. The work is done for you in this unique must have cookbook. Many of us are aware that certain foods affect mood while other foods will help with memory and enhanced learning. Think of a child’s birthday party with cake and soda (ugh!) and how the children will be out of control in a short period of time. Go back to the Thanksgiving dinner where you just want to sleep afterwards and forget about family and friends for just a half hour. Or how about the salad with fresh organic greens, avocado and an assortment of fresh veggies that makes you feel light and on your game. Yes food affects you more than you may think. To take the time to do the research is quite time consuming, and might I say ‘mind boggling’? Well, you don’t have to if you have this book in your hands because Rebecca Katz and Mat Edelson have done it for you. As a Nutritional Therapist I am well aware of and passionate about the brain and body’s reaction to food. As an aging woman, I…
