Blue Zones Kitchen

100 Recipes to Live to 100

The Blue Zones Kitchen fuses scientific reporting, National Geographic photography and 100 recipes that may help you live to 100. The Blue Zones’ food tradition is going the way of the dodo bird, thanks to the encroachment of the American Food Culture. This book captures the way of eating that yielded the statistically longest-lived people and explains, in some detail, why that food has enabled populations to elude the chronic disease scourge that has befallen Americans.

New York Times best-selling author Dan Buettner has traveled the world and visited tiny kitchens from Ikaria to Okinawa to document the recipes and dietary traditions he learned along the way. Stunning photography from National Geographic photographer David McLain accompanies the stories and recipes passed down from the longest-lived people in the world.
     

“With The Blue Zones Kitchen, Dan Buettner has  given us a fact-based, delicious  prescription for eating to live longer, better lives. Immersing himself in the world’s longest-lived communities, Buettner has codified a true diet of longevity. Whole food, plant based eating has never tasted this good, made more sense or been so easy. I’ve traveled the world to explore seen every imaginable style of cooking and let me tell you, this book will change your life.”
