Dr. John LaPuma: Culinary Medicine

From Kim Barnes
Dr. John LaPuma, also known as the ChefMD and the author of “ChefMD’s Big Book of Culinary Medicine: A Food Lover’s Road Map to Losing Losing Weight, Preventing Disease and Getting Really Healthy,” gave his audience basic tips for storing and preparing food to help reduce issues with impotence, premature wrinkling, many cancers, arthritis and others. Among his tips:

  • Marinate meats with rosemary
  • Store watermelon outside the refrigerator
  • Eat 1O walnuts 10 minutes before eating fast food
  • Adopt a Mediterranean diet to help prevent Alzheimer’s.
  • Add black pepper to curry

And, he said, to make food fun and flavorful — and good for your health:
1. Learn to enjoy the art of cooking.
2. Understand that your fork is as powerful as your prescription drugs in maintaining your health.
3. Find recipes that work for you.

    Thanks for the coverage! I understand that the room overflowed and people couldn’t get in! You can check out “ChefMD’s Big Book of Culinary Medicine” for more details.
    Culinary medicine blends the art of cooking with the science of medicine to offer restaurant quality food that helps prevent–and in some cases–actually treat disease.
    More importantly, we give you the energy and power to do the things you want to do, and look and feel better with what you eat.
    Warm regards,
    John La Puma, MD

    Bonjour, This blog is very amazing and easy to read. I am a huge fan of the subjects talked about. I also find joy reading the other peoples thoughts, but it seems like that a great deal of people should stay on topic to try and add value to the original topic. I would also welcome everyone to add this website to your most used website to help let more people know. Thanks
