The Natural Products Expo West is the biggest Health Convention in the Country and takes place over the course of 4 days. It is only open to the trade (over 60 thousand attend). We were there signing books and we sold out quickly. It was a lot of fun.
Here we are with Patricia Bragg whose family is known for their wonderful Apple Cider Vinegar. (left)

Dementia is not a normal part of the aging process. It does not have to happen! Yet, every 4 seconds someone is diagnosed with dementia and over 47 million people worldwide suffer from dementia and Alzheimer's and there is no known cure. Fortunately, there is hope with Judi and Shari Zucker's new book, The Memory Diet, More than 150 Healthy Recipes for the Proper Care and Feeding of your Brain. This book centers around current scientific research proving that certain foods and lifestyle choices can prevent cognitive decline. The brain boosting, plant-based recipes focus on the Mediterranean Intervention Neurodegenerative Delay (MIND) Diet which has shown to decrease getting dementia by 53%! The Memory Diet also explains how to cook foods the correct way without AGE's (Advanced glycation end products) that increase inflammation and can literally accelerate the aging process and cause memory decline. Also featured are the 7 Brain Boosting Food Groups, an easy to follow 7 Day Meal Plan, and How to Stock a Mindful Kitchen. The Memory Diet provides useful information on supplements that really do make a difference in brain health and an extensive resource section that provides an invaluable listing of information websites, organizations and reliable manufactures that support brain health. The Double Energy Twins recipes provide delicious sugar and gluten-free foods that will energize you, keep your mind sharp, good for the whole body and help prevent memory loss!

6) Doctor Alzheimer who first used the term Alzheimer's disease identified this brain dysfunction condition as stemming from the unhealthy animal based western diet which causes multiple strokes, edema and disruption of brain waves. I believe from my forty years of work the best way to prevent and treat dementia associated with atherosclerotic brain disorders is to adopt a plant protein diet and lifestyle medicine approach described in The Memory Diet.

1) My son has a peanut allergy and I was very grateful for the Guide to Avoiding Food Allergens in The Ultimate Allergy-Free Snack Cookbook. I had no idea that ingredients such as mixed nuts, beer nuts, goober peas and monkey nuts could all contain peanuts. My son is learning how to read, and we make a game at the grocery store called "Read the label before it goes to the table". Jessie from Texas
2) I love the recipes in The Ultimate Allergy-Free Snack Cookbook. My favorite is Mummy's Yummy Humus with Killer Kale Crisps. The "Change it Up" portions in the recipes allow terrific variations on the recipes, too!
Carla from San Diego, California
3) When I found out my daughter was allergic to dairy and wheat , I had to restock my kitchen, The chapter on Stocking the Kitchen was extremely helpful for me. Using the milk and wheat substitutes given in the book allows us to make creative dishes to standard favorites! James from New York
4) My daughter had to make a snack for a classroom party. She made the Double Energy Bars in The Ultimate Allergy-Free Snack Cookbook. The bars were a hit, and I ended up buying the book for all the teacher to have in the classroom. Lisa from Seattle, Washington.
5) Not everyone in our family has allergies, but we prefer making recipes now with oat flour instead of wheat flour. We got hooked on the Everyone's Favorite Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Carol from Minnesota
6) As I was munching on Lemon Drops that I made from The Ultimate Allergy-Free Cookbook, I noticed on Page 19 there was a heading called Doggone Foods...who knew dogs had food allergies, too. I will never feed my dog bread with garlic or onions on it again! Thanks. John from Oregon
7) When I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease I realized I thought I would have to give up tasty foods I was used to such as Pizza. The Perfect Pizza Crust and Quick n Easy Pizza Sauce made giving up wheat a whole lot easier. Thanks! Cristina from San Francisco, CA
