Food and cooking has been "the love of a lifetime." When I entered college exactly 50 years ago I declared "Food Technology" as my major. That changed to education for a career, but my keen interest in food and nutrition and cooking has stayed throughout. As young woman I was know as a "health food nut," probably by some, but it has really paid off as I lived on. I have aged more gracefully than many. Some guess my age many years less than it is........so my message to all is to learn about nutrition, then LIVE your interest. One of my treasures is a microwave cookbook that I bought with gift money from my classroom of 6th grade students; the front of the book has all their signatures. I am really impressed with all the indexing advantages here on RZ, and with all the sharing by others. I've continued to explore and enjoy special food combinations in both recipes and menus.
