Maggie s Recipe for Life Book Excerpt:

'This is the most important book of my life.' Maggie Beer. This book is not a diet, it's a way of life. Maggie Beer and leading Alzheimer's researcher Professor Ralph Martins have teamed up to fight one of the most debilitating diseases of our later years. With the same risk factors as diabetes and heart disease, and an aging population, the number of Australians living with Alzheimer's is expected to increase dramatically in the next few decades. However, loss of brain function is not a normal part of aging. The good news is that you can take steps to maintain a heathy brain - by optimising the goodness in the food you eat every day and making some real lifestyle changes such as increasing regular exercise and mental activity. You can eat well to age well, from this moment on. Even when the symptoms of Alzheimer's appear, a healthy lifestyle can slow its progression. Based on the latest scientific research, Maggie has created more than 200 recipes that provide the nutrients we need for optimum brain health. Maggie's delicious, easy recipes give true pleasure at the table, enhancing your health and longevity without deprivation or sacrifice in flavour. There are also quick ideas for meals on the run, a list of pantry items always to have on hand and many practical hints for running your Maggie-inspired healthy kitchen.
