About the book: Dopamine for Dinner is the long-awaited Malibu Beach Recovery Diet Cookbook, based on our famous low-glycemic diet. Our clients arrive addicted to alcohol, street drugs and prescription pills, often depressed and anxious. Over the last six years we have seen the positive impact of not allowing them to eat sugar or white carbs, drink coffee or caffeinated drinks while in treatment. The diet, combined with a special nutracutical called SynaptaGenX and daily practice of Kurma Yoga, helps clients begin to look good and feel good very quickly. They become mentally very clear, and are able to benefit from working with our stellar clinical teams.
“Your low glycemic lunch was out of this world,” said Dr. Kenneth Blum PhD. In 1990 Dr. Blum, an eminent scientist and our advisor on neuroscience, co-discovered with Dr. Ernest Noble the link between genetics and addiction. “You have what is really going to turn a person\'s life around. That includes, and that is, a lifestyle change – and more importantly – an easy program that an individual can follow for the rest of his or her life.”
Dopamine for Dinner was written for our alumni and all others in any stage of recovery from addiction, seeking long-term sobriety. Four of our chefs – Yannick Marchand, Licia Jaccard, John Handal and Sergio Galvao – each contributed seven days of meal plans and altogether more than 150 simple but elegant breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes.
