Wellness Recommendations 


The Mind Diet Plan and Cookbook: Recipes and Lifestyle Guidelines to Help Prevent Alzheimer’s and Dementia written by Julie Andrews MS, RDN, CD. May 7, 2019. Found at Indigo $27.58.

Recommended by Louise Wilson. Louise felt it is important that all members need to read this book because it’s never too late to prevent the risks of both Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

“Feed your brain and fuel your health” with this excellent book. It contains 75 recipes, meal plans, and grocery lists that can get you started. The cookbook also includes mindful tips like foods to eat and foods to avoid helping to prevent the risk of Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia. I appreciated the Chart for Living (see below) that made me aware of five areas of my life to monitor for a healthy peace of mind.
