The Age Beautifully Cookbook

​​​​​​Grace O, author and creator of FoodTrients®, dedicated The Age Beautifully Cookbook to delicious age-defying recipes because eating well doesn’t mean sacrificing the foods you love or satisfying meals.  Grace O’s recipes are built on foundations of modern scientific research and ancient knowledge of medicinal herbs and natural ingredients from around the world. She combines exotic ingredients like moringa, baobab, mangosteen and more to add age-fighting benefits to familiar recipe favorites. 

The Living Now Book Awards are designed to bring increased recognition to the year's very best lifestyle books and their creators. Lifestyle publishing categories such as home, family, wellness and personal development are the fastest-growing segments of book publishing today. The Living Now Book Awards help demonstrate the importance of these books to readers and their vitality in the marketplace.

Cookbooks are such a labor of love, so we are thrilled that The Age Beautifully Cookbook and Grace O have been honored with this award.
