The Longevity Kitchen: Rebecca Katz

Sunday, April 7, 2013 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Event Description: 

The Longevity Kitchen: the Top 16 Age-Busting Power Foods

Despite America's anti-aging obsession and numerous medical advances, for the first time in recorded history, life spans are actually shortening because of what people eat. But it doesn't have to be so. The scientific community has come to recognize the extraordinary power good culinary choices have over our bodies. Taking the very best of this science into the kitchen, wellness authority Rebecca Katz, MS, and her latest cookbook, The Longevity Kitchen, prove that great taste and flavor along with culturally specific, nutrient-dense foods are the best ways to promote a healthy long life. Tapping into the cooking wisdom of elders from noted longevity hotspots, including Okinawa, Greece, and Costa Rica, the book shows how cuisines particular to each region lengthen lives.

Join us for a conversation with Michael Lerner and Rebecca, looking at the research and recipes that went into her new book and at the work she does in Commonweal's Healing Kitchens Institute.
