There is a food revolution underway, fueled by a growing awareness about how our food choices impact our health, the environment, and animal welfare. People are questioning the efficacy of their traditional diets and looking to a whole food, plant-based diet as a better solution. Handbook to Higher Health Consciousness examines every aspect of that solution. As Dr. Neal Barnard says in the Foreword: "This book is the perfect place to dive in. In Handbook to Higher Health Consciousness, David Kater takes readers on a step-by-step journey toward good health. As an educator and communicator who has taken this same journey himself, David will expertly guide you through the process, offering practical advice and words of encouragement along the way." This book is the ultimate guide for anyone who wants to eat more plant-based, whether you are just getting started or well along the path. It is packed with nutrition and health information, backed by solid and well-documented research (170 references). If you are just investigating the possibilities of eating more plant-based, this book will take you step-by-step through the transition, starting with the basics of navigating the grocery store, restocking your pantry and fridge, and preparing simple meals. You'll get answers to questions like: How do I get enough protein? What do I eat each day? How do I deal with cravings or awkward social situations? If you are already eating a vegan diet, this book will help you transition to a more whole food diet and show you how to sustain your new eating style as it develops. The book encourages you to identify your food comfort zone, and continuously expand that comfort zone to include more and more whole foods as your tastes evolve. There is a chapter devoted entirely to recipe-free cooking, which not only teaches you about flavor matching and flavor balancing, it facilitates the process of bringing more whole foods into your diet. There are over 160 mouth-watering recipes, many contributed by certified Food for Life instructor Tracy Childs. The dishes range from appetizers to dairy alternatives to main dishes to adaptable food templates. The book includes a comprehensive collection of online resources to support you at every stage of the journey - apps, blogs, books, documentaries, recipe sites, social media, and more. Handbook to Higher Health Consciousness will guide you through your own personal journey to higher health consciousness. It is everything you need to know how to live plant-strong and thrive!
Consumer demand is creating rapid growth in the functional foods market - a market soon to reach $20 billion worldwide. As a result, the food industry has stepped up the development of functional lipids. These lipids impart health benefits when consumed and also impact food product functionalities. While many books have touched on the correlation between dietary lipids and health, there has not been a single-source guide specifically devoted to functional lipids - until now. The Handbook of Functional Lipids is a comprehensive reference that illustrates the science and applications of lipids in foods. The editor has divided the text into four parts for easy reference regarding topics that: explore the isolation, production, and concentration of functional lipids; explain how lipids provide food functionality; determine how lipids are engaged in health and nutritional functionality; and examine the role of biotechnology in functional lipids and discern their market potential. These sections synthesize the collaborative efforts of international experts at the forefront of lipid science and technology. They provide in-depth treatment for each subject in a straightforward and easy to read manner, making the Handbook of Functional Lipids a must-have resource for those interested in this rapidly growing field.

Recognition and understanding of the special nutrition problems of the aged is changing along with the growing number of the elderly in the general population. In the eight years since the first edition of the Handbook of Nutrition in the Aged was originally published, both economic changes and health issues have contributed to the decreasing nutritional intake among the aged. New treatments such hyperalimenation and renutrition are now accepted as ways to restore and maintain optimum immune functions. Intended for gerentologists, nutritionists, dieticians and assisted living professionals, the third edition of Handbook of Nutrition in the Aged reviews some of the major nutritional problems occurring with significant frequency in elderly adults. Other topics discussed include the effects of the aging process, changes in social status, and financial conditions that significantly affect the approaches to treatment and study of nutritional and health problems of the aged.
