There’s a reason Dr. Frank Lipman is one of the country’s most beloved and well-respected practitioners of functional and integrative medicine. We recently met up with the jovial founder of NYC’s acclaimed wellness center, Eleven Eleven to learn about his latest book How To Be Well and were surprised at the fun practicality of the new book.

How To Be Well reads like a family coffee table book outlining almost every aspect of holistic living that one could imagine. It’s stuffed with hard-core, yet easy-access ideas that wellness newbies and health gurus alike can digest and appreciate. And provides just a glimpse of the bedside manner that’s made Dr. Frank such a valued leader in our space.

To celebrate the book’s launch, we’re sharing this LONG list of Dr Frank-approved breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas. They’re quick, easy, practical and deserve a place in your ‘what’s for dinner’ bookmark list for sure.

Find a few ideas you love and add a liberal dose of herbs, lemon, sea salt and garlic to taste…
