After I’ve added nutrient-dense, anti-aging ingredients, it’s time to test and re-test the recipe until it has the perfect balance of flavors, textures, and colors. I think it’s important for food to look good, have an interesting texture, whether smooth or crunchy or a combination thereof, and be balanced in acidity and spice. I like to have a mix of recipes that, when served together in one meal, tingle all of the taste categories: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and umami (an earthy flavor).
Then each recipe is tested by my FoodTrients team and has received a nutritionist’s stamp of approval to ensure that you are benefitting from expert knowledge in the field of disease- and age-prevention. A FoodTrients recipe has to be so good that I want to eat it again and again. If I don’t want to eat it often, it can’t be included in my cookbook. I’m a tough critic who’s been cooking and creating world-renowned recipes for many years. Yes, food should make you look and feel younger with every bite. But it can’t do that unless it tastes fabulous.
I hope you will try all of the recipes in my new book, The AGE BEAUTIFULLY Cookbook, so that you can see for yourself how delicious aging well can be.
