It's hard to believe it, but it has been over two years since Dr. Annie Fenn's debut here on the podcast in episode 13. Let me introduce you to Annie if you haven't listened to that conversation. She is the founder of Brain Health Kitchen, an evidence-based online resource for how and what to eat to resist cognitive decline. Annie's mission is to help people care for their brains while still eating delicious food.
She just recently launched her new book, Brain Health Kitchen. Not only is it a cookbook filled with 100 easy and delicious recipes, but it is also a guide to taking care of your brain. Today, we are talking about the science and research on Alzheimer's, the relationship between food and brain health, what foods you should focus on, the ones you should limit or avoid, and so much more.
Annie Fenn is a physician, author, culinary instructor, mom, and daughter of a person living with Alzheimer's. Her mission is to help you take care of your brain while still eating delicious food After practicing obstetrics and gynecology for more than 20 years, Dr. Fenn traded her stethoscope for a whisk and went back to school to study culinary arts in Mexico, Italy, and at the Culinary Institute of America.
She founded the Brain Health Kitchen in 2015 as a way to bring people together to fight Alzheimer's. It all started in her home kitchen with a handful of students motivated to learn how to nourish and protect their brains. Dr. Fenn's family had just joined this fight after her mother was diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, which turned out to be an early stage of the disease.
Dr. Fenn has taught more than a thousand students in hands-on classes (and many more online) to cook using the Brain Health Kitchen method. Her first book—The Brain Health Kitchen: Preventing Alzheimer's Through Food (Artisan Books, January 2023)—is now available here and wherever books are sold. She packed all 400 pages with as much science and practical wisdom as possible, along with 100 easy, delicious recipes.
