"It sure is tempting to think that you could (healthfully) eat your way to 100." -Better Homes & Gardens

"It'll help you lose weight and live longer--but this is definitely not your typical fad diet."
-Shape.com

"Simply put, Dan Buettner has written the ultimate manual for longevity." -NY Journal of Books

"As our "Eating to 100 TODAY" series continues, special anchor Maria Shriver reports on "The Blue Zones Kitchen," in which author Dan Buettner shares recipes from places where people live longer and healthier. He says one common denominator among long-lived people is a plant-based diet." -MSN.com

"So, that's what people in the Blue Zones do to make it past 100 years old. No elixirs, pills, or workout regimens here. Their "fountain of youth" is really quite simple--staying active; eating whole, plant-based carbs; and socializing with friends can really add years to your life."
-MindBodyGreen

"Blue Zone residents, whether they're home in Loma Linda, California; Ikaria, Greece; Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; or Nicoya, Costa Rica, all eat very little meat. Instead, they subsist on a largely plant-based diet filled with beans, nuts, and cruciferous vegetables, which Buettner has written about in a new cookbook." -Business Insider

"His list of staples shows that eating foods linked to longevity doesn't require a big food budget or living near a grocery market filled with all the latest-and-greatest products. The key is eating a plant-forward diet and whole grains--all foods you can find no matter where in the world you live." -Well + Good

"In his book, Buettner lays out many dos and don'ts for longevity diets and has a helpful guideline to get you on the longevity path...Other tips from Buettner's book includes retreating from meat, cutting down on fish, reducing dairy, slashing sugar, and eating lots of beans and nuts...Luckily, Buettner has an entire book of 100 recipes to help guide us along the way." -La Cucina Italiana
