The Most Effective Ways to Live Longer Cookbook: The Surprising, Unbiased Truth about Great-Tasting Food That Prevents Disease and Gives You Optimal H Cover





From Dr. Jonny: Remember the saying “Beans, beans, good for the heart”? Well, it’s true. And it’s even truer when you combine beans with wild salmon. You get omega-3s from the fish—the best thing in the world for the heart and brain—and a ton of fiber from the beans. What could be bad? And if you’re wondering what mirin is, it’s a kind of rice wine used as an essential condiment in Japanese cuisine. (And it knocks out any fishy smell!) This light, no-cook dish has a nice Asian flair and is great for a summer evening dinner or a quick lunch anytime.

2 romaine hearts or 1 head Boston lettuce

2 teaspoons (10 ml) toasted sesame oil

1 tablespoon (15 ml) raw sesame oil

1 tablespoon (15 ml) mirin

1 tablespoon (15 ml) unseasoned rice vinegar

Juice of 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons [30ml])

1 teaspoon tamari

¼ teaspoon salt

1 can (7.5 ounces, or 214 g) wild Alaskan salmon (we like Vital Choice), drained

1 can (15 ounces, or 400 g) navy beans, rinsed

and drained

1 cup (100 g) cooked adzuki beans, rinsed and drained if using canned

¼ cup (25 g) diced scallions, bulbs removed

Wash the lettuce and separate the leaves. Arrange leaves into a bed in a salad bowl.

In a large bowl, whisk together sesame oils, mirin, rice vinegar, lime juice, tamari, and salt. Add salmon and break chunks apart into flakes with a fork. Add beans and scallions. Toss gently to combine well and spoon over lettuce bed.

Tuna salad is a favorite American lunch dish, but the heavy mayo typically used cancels out some of the longevity benefits of the fish. For a heart-healthy upgrade, try this version with salmon for the increased omega-3s and this lighter, more flavorful seed-oil dressing for a further boost of healthy fats. It makes a great wrap, too.

"Synopsis" by ,

Eat, drink, and be healthy at any age with these delicious recipes!

Fight oxidative damage caused by free radicals, which wears you down from the inside out. Stop the silent killer of inflammation. Reduce the damage caused by sugar molecules, known as glycation. Relieve mental, physical, and emotional stress.

Acclaimed nutritionist Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., C.N.S., and chef Jeannette Bessinger, C.H.H.C., have crafted more than 140 flavorful, mouth-watering recipes loaded with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, vitamins, minerals, and other key nutritional components that fight the effects of aging, prevent disease, and help you feel your best every day. Specific recipes protect your heart, brain, bones, liver, and immune system, helping each of these vital organs do its job and adding years to your life.

These scrumptious recipes feature foods eaten regularly by the longest lived societies on our planet—real food, not manufactured food “products.” Try Heart-Healthy Mega Omega Fettuccine Alfredo, Immune Boon Kung Pao Chicken Soup, Hike ’n’ Bike Trail Mix, Antioxidant Almond Nog, and Chocolate–Vitamin C Fruit Salad. Using delicious ingredients and smart, healthy cooking methods, Chef Jeannette transforms everyday food—and some comfort foods—into delicious dishes!

As Dr. Jonny says, the foods in this book “will fuel your body like high-octane gas in a Ferrari, allowing you to perform your best, live life to the fullest, and have boundless energy for decades and decades.”
