What exactly is the superfood Incan diet, and what makes eating the Peruvian way so beneficial? In his third book, Manuel Villacorta lays out the important elements that make his dieting plan a well-seasoned recipe for long-lasting health. 'Superfood' is not just a buzz-word or a passing vogue; it's the integral component to leading a healthy lifestyle, a word many of us are recognizing by the minute. As these once obscure products find broader distribution and consumers have greater access, superfoods are finding their way into mainstream supermarkets, gradually becoming a staple to the American diet. The benefits of consuming Peruvian superfoods are astonishing: from fighting cancer and reducing inflammation to boosting energy and enhancing memory—these foods have it all. In his Peruvian superfoods diet, Villacorta provides simple yet thorough explanations of weight-loss, anti-aging, and disease-fighting concepts by using an appealing page layout displaying beautiful color photography, easy-to-read bullet points, and sidebars summarizing each health benefit. What makes Villacorta's book so enticing, aside from his mouth-watering recipes, is that he offers specific meal plans geared towards both men and women looking to lose weight and lead a healthier life. He has also created custom 7-day meal plans for vegans, vegetarians, omnivores, and gluten-free diet preferences. By using the core principles from his first book, Eating Free, Villacorta proves to his readers that they can successfully follow a super-health weight-loss plan, easily gain the skill in cooking from scratch, dine with elegance, and reduce every-day stress.

Praise for Reconnecting Education & Foundations "Ray Bacchetti and Thomas Ehrlich have brought together an impressive constellation of thinkers to consider philanthropy's fundamentally important role in American education--past, present, and future." --Thomas Toch, cofounder and codirector, Education Sector "This volume provides a critical and constructive analysis of relationships between foundations and education institutions. It offers thoroughly researched, well reasoned, and very practical suggestions for increasing foundations' impact on the quality of K-12 and university education." --Deborah Stipek, dean, Stanford University School of Education "This fascinating book, the outcome of a project to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, asks the crucial question whether foundations can and should invest in 'educational capital' in this new century, now that the historic consensus on what makes for good education has given way to an era of uncertainty and politicization as to the goals of education. The book will convince readers that the stakes are high in resolving this dilemma in educational investment." --Stanley N. Katz, director, Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies,Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University "This impressive book by Bacchetti, Ehrlich, and their knowledgeable coauthors unveils through sound research and analysis the interlocking and often tension-ridden tripartite relationships among the institutions of private philanthropy (i.e., foundations), schools, and colleges. It is a must read for Messrs. Buffett and Gates along with thoughtful practitioners, academics, and policy analysts in the fields of philanthropy and education. It doesn't provide all of the answers but raises many very important questions." --Donald M. Stewart, visiting professor, the Harris School of Public Policy Studies, University of Chicago

The inspiring, life-changing bestseller by the author of LEADERS EAT LAST and TOGETHER IS BETTER. In 2009, Simon Sinek started a movement to help people become more inspired at work, and in turn inspire their colleagues and customers. Since then, millions have been touched by the power of his ideas, including more than 28 million who’ve watched his TED Talk based on START WITH WHY -- the third most popular TED video of all time. Sinek starts with a fundamental question: Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it. START WITH WHY shows that the leaders who've had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way -- and it's the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY.
