by Conner Middelmann-Whitney

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Zest for Life, the first anti-cancer health book with recipes based on the traditional Mediterranean diet, provides all the guidance and practical advice you need to prepare delicious, easy and affordable meals to boost your defenses against cancer. Without prevention, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women in the industrialized world will develop cancer. What many people don't know: at least a third of cancers could be avoided through a healthy diet and lifestyle. Zest for Life does *not* propose a short-term "diet" of hunger, deprivation or imbalanced eating. On the contrary, it shows how easy it is to enjoy a wide variety of tasty, healthy foods every day and in doing so to reduce not only our cancer risk, but also the risk of heart disease, obesity or diabetes. The Zest for Life diet emphasizes vegetables and fruits, fish, olive oil, legumes, fresh herbs and spices, and highlights the importance of conviviality and the guilt-free enjoyment of food, thus nourishing both body and soul. The healthy, modern recipes are inspired by rich culinary traditions from around the Mediterranean: Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Morocco and others. Zest for Life comprises a 120-page science section outlining the principles of anti-cancer eating based on the latest scientific research, followed by 150 easy, family-friendly recipes (using US and UK measurements). Most of the recipes are plant-based, although healthy fish and meat dishes feature too, as do low-sugar, gluten-free cakes and other desserts. Author Conner Middelmann-Whitney, nutritionist, health writer, chef and mother-of-three, overcame early-stage cervical cancer 11 years ago. Pragmatic, not preachy, she shares her personal cancer story in an engaging style and suggests simple, tasty ways in which anti-cancer eating can fit into busy schedules and tight budgets.
