Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States and one of the most terrifying diseases out there. Polls show that people are more scared of getting dementia in old age than any other disease.

Alzheimer’s is not just a disease of old age. Younger-onset also know as early onset Alzheimer’s affects people younger than 65 and 5 million people in the United States alone have younger-onset Alzheimer’s Disease. 

Since 2000, deaths from Alzheimer’s disease have increased by 89% and in 2015 The Alzheimer’s Disease International  estimated that someone in the world develops a form of dementia every three seconds.  

Yet some populations in the world like South Asia and Africa not only live long, healthy lives, but remain cognitively healthy too.

So what are they doing right? That is what we are going to discuss today. We are going to discover ways you can protect yourself from Alzheimer’s Disease, memory problems and dementia. And find out the brain's amazing potential to improve cognitive function. 

We will also visit Ordinary Vegan's Kitchen and create a delicious plant-based recipe with one secret ingredient that can improve your memory.

Today's podcast is entirely devoted to how to save money buying, storing and cooking organic produce.

Let's begin with the most important question. Do you need to spend extra money on organic produce?

Non-organic fruits and vegetables contain pesticides, but not everyone can afford organic produce. So if you need to save money and can't buy all organic, you need to know about the risk chart.

There are 13 domestically grown non-organic fruits and vegetables that pose a higher risk of pesticides. Learn what those fruits and vegetables are and why the Environmental Working Group always recommends that you buy this produce organically.

I don't know about you, but once you spend the money on organic produce, the last thing you want is for it to go to waste.  A staggering amount of food is wasted  from farm to table, often just because of how it looks.

However, we the people waste the most food, and the most wasteful food category is fruits and vegetables.

Has this ever happened to you?  You make a shopping list, go to the store, put everything away, and then all of a sudden a few days have flown by. You go to use your produce bin, and you discover your beautiful and sometimes expensive produce is limp and lifeless.

That is why one of the keys to great-tasting, long-lasting fruits and vegetables is proper storage. I never knew how to store produce properly, but I do now and I will share everything I know in this week's podcast.

Lastly, fruits and vegetables come in a dazzling array of colors that give them their visual appeal. And what gives vegetables and fruits their particular color is the presence of certain pigments in their cells.

To maintain these natural, vibrant colors and flavors during cooking, it is important to understand how to cook and treat each pigment category. You will learn everything you need to know about cooking produce by color in today's podcast.

Our Ordinary Vegan cooking segment today is my favorite high-protein, low-calorie, high-fiber, 20-minute soup recipe - Chickpea Soup with Cabbage, Tomatoes & Basil.

Hope you enjoy today's recipe and broadcast. My number one goal is to help you live a long and healthy life. If you are inclined to help support the Ordinary Vegan podcast - here is how you can assist:
