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 costs.
As long as we treat eating primarily as a form of entertainment, distraction, or for stopping hunger pangs, rather than as an act of nurturing and maintaining good health, no state-of-the-art medical treatment can prevent our nation’s growing health crisis.
I strongly believe that preparing wholesome meals has a powerful, multi-faceted effect on people’s lives. It has a most positive influence on their health, dramatically reduces healthcare and food cost, enhances interpersonal relationships within families, and boosts overall quality of life. My goal is to inspire readers, students, and others, to improve their diet. As a nutritional cook, I focus, in my writing and teaching, on combining more than 40 years of an ongoing study of nutrition biochemistry, natural medicine, and culinary arts, with the spiritual and creative aspects of cooking wholesome, delicious, quick, and inexpensive meals.
