The Brain Boosting Diet: Feed Your Memory

Whitecap. Jan. 2020. 606p. ISBN 9781770503212. pap. $50. COOKING
Cookbook writer Gilletz (Norene’s Healthy Kitchen) and food scientist Wein have created a substantial resource for diet and brain health. With 90 pages on the topic, 12 pages of references, and 400 pages of recipes, there are plenty of dishes catered to and information on living a more health-conscious life. Although some of the material will be familiar (cutting back on sugar and carbs, snacking on nuts is beneficial for their nutrients and protein), Wein bolsters the diet tips with the science behind them and even includes menu planning ideas. Also discussed are supplements and their effectiveness. With easy-to-find ingredients and clear instructions, Gilletz’s recipes will be accessible to most cooks. Several appendixes include information on weight conversions, serving sizes, and nutrition information.
VERDICT A helpful resource that blends beneficial health tips and exciting science facts.
