“MIND Diet for Beginners is perfect for those who care enough to pick up a book to learn how diet can prevent cognitive decline but don't want to put a ton of work into it. With quick snippets that allow you to get through the chapters in minutes, the dietitian who wrote this cleverly entwined a thorough plan with realistic weekly menus, grocery lists, and tips that couldn't be easier to implement.” —Colleen Wysocki, MS, RDN, Editor, and Owner of Edible Edits, edibleedits.com
“The recipes in this book sound SO good—I definitely will be making most of them. I really love the simplicity and the versatility in these brain-healthy go-tos. The book is designed to be simple to follow and is a great place to start for anyone who wants this type of eating to be accessible. Definitely use her meal plan to figure out how you'll follow the MIND diet, plus there’s a blank weekly planner that you can use to create your own schedule.
