Just about a month ago a book arrived in my mailbox—Hypertension Cookbook For Dummies. I was so excited and couldn’t believe it was published already! It seemed only months ago that a colleague Rosanne Rust, MS, RD, LDN a registered dietitian and already an author of three Dummies series books emailed me. Was I interested in co-authoring this book or did I know anyone? As much as I want to be an author, I wasn’t the person for this particular job, but I thought I might know someone who was!
Registered dietitian and culinary expert Cindy Kleckner proved to be the perfect person. I’ve known Cindy since our years together at the Cooper Clinic. She continues to give nutrition lectures and culinary demos for the Cooper Fitness Center at the Craig Ranch location in McKinney, Texas. Most recently she was doing 4-week kitchen boot camps. I knew she had a repertoire of recipes well suited for this book. It’s very exciting to see this project complete. Congrats Cindy and Rosanne!
Here is our interview for the book.
