Abstract

Unsustainable increases in the prevalence and costs of chronic disease in the United States call for low-cost, high-impact interventions that can be readily incorporated into people's daily lives. Culinary medicine is one such intervention. As a practical discipline, culinary medicine integrates the art of preparing, cooking, and presenting food with the science of medicine to achieve desired health outcomes. This article describes how the underpinnings and components of culinary medicine enhance existing nutrition interventions. Evidence of improved well-being and reduced resource utilization as the result of culinary medicine interventions is compiled for easy reference by health care organizations, medical professionals, people living with or at risk for chronic disease, food industry specialists, and payers in both the public and private sectors. Suggestions for individual and organizational implementation of culinary medicine strategies are offered with a proposed lexicon for continued development of the field. Copyright © 2019 Elsevier Inc.
