Although hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is routinely prescribed for millions of American women with menopause, little is known about its long-term efficacy–or its side effects. As more women seek alternatives to the synthetic or animal estrogens used in HRT, a growing body of scientific research suggests that the effects of menopause can be countered naturally, through diet. Using the latest research on nutrition for women, including antioxidant vitamins, calcium, and fats, the authors provide a symptom-by-symptom breakdown to help women recognize and address their nutritional needs. Discover:

   •  Nutrients that nourish your skin from the inside out
   •  What to eat to beat hot flashes and fatigue
   •  Foods that produce natural tranquilizers for your body

More than 200 wholesome and fresh recipes reflect both nutrition and cooking expertise, with dishes like Full-of-Vegetables Beef Stew, Garlic Soup with Bruschetta, Curried Barley with Caramelized Onions, and Peach Crumble. All are vibrantly flavored with juices, herbs, and spices from around the world. Recipes for Change opens up a new world of feeling and eating well–meeting the challenges of menopause, and providing the wisdom and enthusiasm for good food and good nutrition–without the use of HRT.
