As a practicing medical doctor and the director of research at one of the world’s most prominent Alzheimer’s disease research institutions, Dr. Marwan Sabbagh has spent decades studying Alzheimer’s disease. He knows how overwhelming the competing facts can be. He also knows that preventing Alzheimer’s is far preferable to treating it. That’s why he teamed up with Chef Beau MacMillan, executive chef of Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain and its signature restaurant, to create The Alzheimer’s Prevention Cookbook: Recipes to Boost Brain Health—the first Alzheimer’s prevention cookbook by a major publisher and the best line of defense to date against this devastating disease.

This full-color cookbook and health guide delivers a dietary plan that empowers readers to think—and cook—in a way that can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s, dementia, and memory loss. Featuring an overview of brain science and the latest evidence-based research, the book shares more than 100 brain-boosting recipes rich in the B-complex vitamins, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and omega-3s. Much of the dietary plan depends on everyday fruits, vegetables, spices, and proteins, such as pomegranates, leafy greens, cinnamon and turmeric, and fish and chicken. Plus some of the healthiest and most delicious dietary tricks from around the world are captured in simple recipes that bring disease-prevention science right to the table.
