Editorial Reviews

David Katz, MD
The Kardea Gourmet is predicated on sound principles of nutrition, and high standards of cuisine - epitomizing the opportunity I like to call 'loving food that loves us back!' This book will help you get to that sweet spot - I recommend it.
Dean Ornish, M,D.
Dr. Richard Collins is not only a cooking cardiologist; he's a cardiologist's cardiologist. In this lifesaving book, he shows that it's not just how long we live, it's also how well we live. Highly recommended
Dr. Glenn Gaesser, PhD
“If America followed the eating recommendations in The Kardea Gourmet, we would not be talking about diabetes, obesity, and heart disease like we are today. It’s not just about cutting back on the ‘wrong’ foods, but how to add heart-healthy foods in doable ways. The Kardea Gourmet offers science-backed dietary solutions, while at the same time creating a more enjoyable eating experience.”
Dr. James Ehrlich, M.D.
“The Kardea Gourmet is now my best prescription for healthy living and could easily be the difference between a premature heart attack and what the book could easily deliver - a long term relationship with your grandchildren!”
Dr. Matthew Burg, PhD
“Diet plans that pay little attention to taste and satisfaction are difficult to live and typically fail. Not so with The Kardea Gourmet. This delightful book may be a game changer.“

Meet the Author

Cardiiologist Richard E. Collins M.D. also known as The Cooking Cardiologist, is Director of Wellness at a leading Western Cardiology Clinic and a leading researcher involved in reversal of heart disease through changes in lifestyle and diet.

Rob Leighton's passion for good food is as much a part of his genetic code as is high cholesterol. Rob had spent his career in the food industry and served as CEO of a 130 year-old chocolate company. When he turned 47, blood tests indicated high cholesterol levels. Rather than follow in his parents' footsteps with a steady cocktail of medications, Rob successfully adopted a nutritional solution. He founded Kardea Nutrition to help others along their own journey to heart healthier lifestyles.
