There is a food revolution underway, fueled by a growing awareness about how our food choices impact our health, the environment, and animal welfare. People are questioning the efficacy of their traditional diets and looking to a whole food, plant-based diet as a better solution. Handbook to Higher Health Consciousness examines every aspect of that solution. As Dr. Neal Barnard says in the Foreword: "This book is the perfect place to dive in. In Handbook to Higher Health Consciousness, David Kater takes readers on a step-by-step journey toward good health. As an educator and communicator who has taken this same journey himself, David will expertly guide you through the process, offering practical advice and words of encouragement along the way." This book is the ultimate guide for anyone who wants to eat more plant-based, whether you are just getting started or well along the path. It is packed with nutrition and health information, backed by solid and well-documented research (170 references). If you are just investigating the possibilities of eating more plant-based, this book will take you step-by-step through the transition, starting with the basics of navigating the grocery store, restocking your pantry and fridge, and preparing simple meals. You'll get answers to questions like: How do I get enough protein? What do I eat each day? How do I deal with cravings or awkward social situations? If you are already eating a vegan diet, this book will help you transition to a more whole food diet and show you how to sustain your new eating style as it develops. The book encourages you to identify your food comfort zone, and continuously expand that comfort zone to include more and more whole foods as your tastes evolve. There is a chapter devoted entirely to recipe-free cooking, which not only teaches you about flavor matching and flavor balancing, it facilitates the process of bringing more whole foods into your diet. There are over 160 mouth-watering recipes, many contributed by certified Food for Life instructor Tracy Childs. The dishes range from appetizers to dairy alternatives to main dishes to adaptable food templates. The book includes a comprehensive collection of online resources to support you at every stage of the journey - apps, blogs, books, documentaries, recipe sites, social media, and more. Handbook to Higher Health Consciousness will guide you through your own personal journey to higher health consciousness. It is everything you need to know how to live plant-strong and thrive!

It addresses the growing interest in racial and ethnic diversity, and includes an exploration of spirituality and disability, as well as a look at new partnerships, such as within the community, that have developed.

Recognition and understanding of the special nutrition problems of the aged is changing along with the growing number of the elderly in the general population. In the eight years since the first edition of the Handbook of Nutrition in the Aged was originally published, both economic changes and health issues have contributed to the decreasing nutritional intake among the aged. New treatments such hyperalimenation and renutrition are now accepted as ways to restore and maintain optimum immune functions. Intended for gerentologists, nutritionists, dieticians and assisted living professionals, the third edition of Handbook of Nutrition in the Aged reviews some of the major nutritional problems occurring with significant frequency in elderly adults. Other topics discussed include the effects of the aging process, changes in social status, and financial conditions that significantly affect the approaches to treatment and study of nutritional and health problems of the aged.

We seek to throw down the gauntlet with this handbook, challenging the he gemony of the "behavioral medicine" approach to the psychological study and treatment of the physically ill. This volume is not another in that growing surfeit oftexts that pledge allegiance to the doctrinaire purity of behavioristic thinking, or conceptualize their subject in accord with the sterility of medical models. Diseases are not our focus, nor is the narrow band of behavioral assessment and therapy methodologies. Rather, we have sought to redefine this amorphous, yet burgeoning field so as to place it squarely within the province of a broadly-based psychology-specifically, the emerging, substantive discipline of health psy chology and the well-established professionalism and diverse technologies of clinical psychology. The handbook's title-Clinical Health Psychology-reflects this reorientation explicitly, and Chapter 1 addresses its themes and provides its justifications more fully. In the process of developing a relevant and comprehensive health assess ment tool, the editors were struck by the failure of clinical psychologists to avail themselves of the rich vein of materials that comprise the psychosocial world of the physically ill. Perhaps more dismaying was the observation that this field was being mined-less than optimally-by physicians and nonclinical psychologists.
