Currently, she is also writing a Healthy Cooking cookbook. Her motto is: Keep the doctor away – deliciously!
I am alarmed by the sorry state of our nation’s health. Clearly, the unhealthy lifestyle perpetuated by millions in the U.S. is, in great part, the reason for the exploding rate of chronic diseases and skyrocketing medical cost. Eating habits have a profound effect on health. As long as eating is viewed primarily as a form of entertainment, for stopping hunger pangs, or for masking stress, rather than as an act of nurturing and maintaining good health, no state-of-the-art medical treatment can prevent our country’s growing health crisis.
I strongly believe that regularly preparing nutritious meals at home has a powerful, multi-faceted effect on people’s lives. It most positively impacts their health, dramatically reduces health care and food cost, enhances interpersonal relationships within families, and boosts overall quality of life.
