Can What You Eat Make A Difference?

Beside every great man is a strong woman to help push him in the right direction. We want to keep our men healthy by preventing any sort of disease that may come his way. Can what you eat make a difference? There’s some things we can’t control like your family history or your age. However, a healthful lifestyle and eating well, we can control. In my new book, Guy’s Guide to Eating Well: A Man’s Cookbook For Health and Wellness, I teamed up with Dr. Curtis Chastain to explore the world of preventative medicine through food.

In this men’s health cookbook, we tackled topics that every man concerns himself with, such as:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Joint Pain
  • Cancer

With realistic recipes to establish a healthy kitchen, a man can actually help reduce his risk factors by eating the right food. Guy’s Guide to Eating Wellcookbook will not only help your man fight off these diseases, but your whole family as well.

How Certain Ingredients Can Positively Affect Your Health

Get your man more involved in his health by providing him with all of the tools he needs to live a healthy lifestyle. You might be surprised the impact of certain ingredients can have on health. Did you know that crab contains zinc, which aids in the production of testosterone which can actually help boost your libido?! Hot and spicy foods like wasabi generate a physiological response likened to when you get excited making these delicious diabetic-friendly Crab Cakes with Wasabi Sauce, perfect for Food For the Mood Chapter.

Foods to Help Prevent Heart Disease

Have you often wondered, “What can I eat to help prevent heart disease?” Foods high in saturated fats have shown to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Typically, saturated fats can be found in animal fat sources like meat and dairy. To avoid these foods, include the following in your diet:

  • Low fat milk, such as skim milk
  • Beans
  • Chicken
  • Fish

The chapter on heart disease elaborates more extensively on the subject, including risk factors, strategies and a number of recipes to help promote an anti-heart disease life style like in this amazing shrimp recipe for Baked Shrimp Scampi that you or your husband can cook in under 30 minutes.

Fruits and Vegetables

If you struggle with menus, you’ll find serving suggestions and tips in my cookbook to make you more proficient in the kitchen. This quick salad recipe, Corn, Cucumber and Tomato Salad, I recently prepared on The Harry Connick Show in New York City comes from the Cancer: The Hidden Sniper chapter. Eating fruits and vegetables is important, and this simple salad highlights summer produce with fresh juicy tomatoes, creamy avocados, fresh corn and crisp cucumber. Harry Connick Jr. loved the simplicity of using fresh produce with a light lime yogurt coating, and you will too!

Healthy Food Leads to a Healthier Life

Finally, let’s focus on what you eat to live a longer, healthier life. With preventive health relatable information and thirty minute healthy recipes with everyday ingredients, this wellness cookbook bible will guide your man and you to better health.
