The Menopause Cookbook: How to Eat Now and for the Rest of Your Life
As a gynecologist, Dr. Hope Ricciotti has been counseling women about the best way to stay healthy and lower the impact of menopausal side effects for years. She has found that some women either cannot tolerate hormone replacement therapy or do not feel it is right for them. What she suggests is adding phytoestrogens-natural estrogens found in food-as well as calcium and antioxidants to one's diet for all the benefits of estrogen without any of its worries. Even women on hormone replacement therapy will find that these delicious recipes will add to their health. Vincent Connelly, a trained chef, worked with Dr. Ricciotti to give each recipe the best in nutrition and in taste. It would be hard to resist pan-seared salmon with goat cheese, leeks, and basil or gratin of potatoes, chard, and roasted peppers. Many of the recipes can be made by even the busiest women. Besides main entrees, sections on breakfast foods, sandwich spreads, pastas, desserts, and even smoothies are included.

Excellent book, good information, great recipes. Except maybe for the part on soy, which has become a controversial subject of late - due to non-authentic methods of growing soy beans and manufacturing its byproducts. Read full review
