In 1975, my husband, two little baby girls, and I were living in an apartment in Chicago's Hyde Park district. My husband had diabetes and asthma and I realized I didn't know very much about healthy food and the best way to feed my family. I'd always been a fairly decent student having graduated a few years earlier with a M.A. degree from Bradley University in clinical psychology.
I minored in biology as an undergraduate and did postgraduate work in biology with an emphasis on human anatomy and physiology. I've also done considerable independent study in this area as well as studying about foods simply because I enjoy it and to help my husband with his Type 2 Diabetes. My latest book, How to Eat Healthy - foods to eat . . . foods to avoid, is available at on Amazon.com
