As we know use a Med diet it's always interesting to learn what else we can do to make our lives last longer by being more healthier.
Love all the new information, love to learn to new things for making our daily foods.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
It is also true the recipes don't seem to follow the actual diets of the people as described in the book that much. I like ethnic cookbooks that try to be as authentic as possible with a few adaptations for things that aren't possible to find elsewhere, but these recipes do seem tailored to a preexisting diet philosophy, rather than what the people in the blue zones were actually eating at least as described in the book. A few of them still seem like they might be tasty though, but I really wanted more from this book than a few recipes.
