The Healthy Mind Cookbook by Rebecca Katz

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.

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.

 If you are into Healthy eating then The Healthy Mind CookBook is definitely for you. The cookbook is loaded with food that improve your  mental health. The author tells how  foods and ingredients benefit your health and in what way. There are different categories such as what are good  foods that promote memory, cognition and learning. 
  There are many recipes that are just wonderful that I made out of the cook book. Triple Greens Frittata. The final cooked result was very tasty. I loved it. The one I made for a breakfast treat was Cranberry, Orange, and Apricot Muffins. Again a very tasty final product. 
    There are a few things that I can say that is negative. Some of the recipes don't have pictures of the end result of the recipe. Most of the time I feel better about cooking or preparing something from a recipe when I have a picture of what it is suppose to look like when I am done. Second some of the print is rather small. If the print was larger you could read the recipe from farther away and would make it easier to read while cooking.
    I highly recommend this cookbook to everyone.
I give this cookbook 4.5 stars. I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
