Overview

Dr. Mao's Secrets of Longevity Cookbook: Eat to Thrive, Live Long, and Be Healthy by Maoshing Ni

 Best-selling author Dr. Mao, known in Hollywood as Doctor to the Stars, offers more than 75 easy-to-prepare, even-better-to-enjoy recipes to bolster health and increase longevity. 

Known as “Doctor to the stars,” Mao Shing Ni, M.D. extends the thoughts presented inside his international best-seller Secrets of Longevity and translates those ideas into kitchen-friendly palate-pleasing recipes that promise to improve health, happiness, and longevity. 

 
Bite-sized tips are offered alongside easily prepared, flavorful recipes that describe the health benefits of each dish. With a focus on using fresh foods that have specific health benefits and longevity properties, Dr. Mao highlights signature ingredients specific to each dish and provides an overview discussing the food’s particular health benefits. Recipes such as Dr. Mao’s Honey-Glazed Masala Chicken with Apricots to Dr. Mao’s Immune Boost Borscht with Porcini Mushrooms, or Spicy Tri-color Pepper Beef with Himalayan Gojiberry, and Dr. Mao’s signature Anti-Aging Brain Mix and Brain Tonic, are presented alongside beautiful four-color photographs and easy-to-follow directions. In addition, a simple list of life-extending foods is also included, along with a list of in-season bounty and a handy health glossary created especially for this book by Dr. Mao. With such bragging rights, it’s easy to consider Dr. Mao’s Secrets of Longevity Cookbook the ultimate cooking companion and a flavorful resource for living a longer, healthier, and more enjoyable life. 

"I LOVE the book. Dr. Mao’s words confirmed a lot of what I have already known about food, but he made the connection clear on longevity and better living as an older person. It actually changed the way I look at food."  — Pamela Silvestri, Food Editor, Staten Island Advance
