Blue Zone Cooking for Longevity at Fountaingate Gardens
January 28 @ 8:30 am - 9:15 am
“If you want to live to a healthy 100, eat like healthy people who’ve lived to 100.
— Dan Buettner, author of The Blue Zones Kitchen: 100 Recipes to Live to 100.
Studies suggest a healthy lifestyle coupled with a diet rich in plant-based foods may increase your life expectancy by 10-12 years, particularly if you live in a “Blue Zone” area where low rates of chronic disease are tied to longevity.
Join Melissa Negrin-Weiner of Cona Elder Law and Gurwin Healthcare Systems’ Chef Juan for a demonstration on satisfying and delicious Blue Zone cooking. Filmed on-site at Fountaingate Gardens, Gurwin’s luxury Life Plan Community for active adults, the pair discuss the benefits of healthy cooking and living while Chef papers a Blue Zone staple — white beans and hummus — prepared with Vitamin C and fiber-packed ingredients that are known to help reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease.
