Nutrition and Me


(or How I Killed My First Husband)

I married my first husband (donít worry, there were only two) when I was 19. As a wedding gift, my oldest brother gave me a health food cookbook written by Carleton Fredricks, an old time nutritionist. This book was my introduction to nutrition.

In spite of the fact that hubby and I had eloped, my parents insisted on sending out hundreds of marriage announcements, In return, we received many gifts, including lots of stuff I never used - like five hibachis. But, my brotherís prophetic gift was the only cookbook I got. And, since I had no cooking experience, I learned how to cook using that radical health food cookbook.

I can still vividly remember my new husband sitting by the toilet smoking a cigarette and looking a little green after I told him he had just eaten scrambled eggs with beef brains for Saturday morning brunch. So, my marriage didnít last long and the cookbook might have been part of the reason.

My first husbandís dead now. Of course, I didnít really kill him, but I always felt sorry that I never convinced him of the value of good nutrition. Living on junk food and chain smoking till his very last breath, he died of prostate cancer. So, you might even say he killed himself.

As for me, my interest in nutrition never died. Over the past forty years, it has grown, flourished and become a driving force. And, thatís why Iím here today sharing with you.

By the way, my second husbandís still alive and well and living here with me. And, yes, he understands the value of good nutrition. As a result, he has very low blood pressure, an exceptionally good cholesterol count and we just got back his PSA report that shows he has a perfectly healthy prostate. The contribution Iíve been able to make to his health has added to the joy of celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary.
