I have felt drawn to writing a book, and a cookbook, for as long as nutrition and health has been a passion of mine, which has been a very long time. But the seed for Eat to Beat Alzheimer’s, was planted specifically in a conversation that I had with my step-father a few years ago.
In the book, I write about our relationship and what he meant to me. My step-father was an important figure in my life, and when he was very ill, and dying, I went to spend time with him while he was in the hospital. And although he was very important to me, I was never sure how important I was to him. In other words, he didn’t make much effort, perhaps didn’t know how, to connect with me on a deeper level. That is, until we were alone in the hospital.
