The simple philosophy of this cookbook

is that by following the dietary wisdom of centenarians, we can initiate self-healing within ourselves, enjoy life more in the present, and achieve longevity in the future.


Dr. Mao's extensive interviews with centenarians from all over the world, including the "longevity capitals" of Okinawa, Japan; Vileabamba, Ecuador; Sardinia, Italy; and Barna County, China; provide the backbone of this book.


Dr. Mao has compiled dozens of delicious and healthy recipes that he has gathered throughout the years from his patients, students, and even his own childhood in China.


Simple concepts, such as eating five smaller meals a day, consuming more plants, letting food be your medicine, and combining the best of the East and West, will help you make the most of your meals each day and lead you on the path of longevity and health.




Dishes such as Banana Buckwheat Pancakes, Salmon Leek Salad with Ginger-Miso Dressing, Creamy Sweet Potato Soup, and Stuffed Pumpkin make use of longevity ingredients that will leave you satisfied and feeling great.


Use the weekly menus to plan out your meals to make sure you're eating healthy all the time.


You will also discover many other ways to eat to thrive, including tips on cookware and utensils, pantry essentials, and the best anti-aging foods. Dr. Mao's Secrets of Longevity Cookbook is all you need to start getting the most out of the food you eat.


Instead of ingesting the empty calories that most packaged and fast food provide, you'll be gaining all of the vital energy associated with eating a healing diet of living, natural foods.
