About the Author
Married with five children, Walter Allen Scott has always enjoyed cooking for his family. After traveling extensively, he learned a variety of methods and ways to prepare dishes from around the world. As a hospitality executive, Scott’s skill set came together to create a fun, celebratory, family-style home life, as well as an engaging work place. All this entertaining however, eventually took its toll and led to an unhealthy lifestyle where the author was overweight, with high cholesterol, and showed the beginning signs of heart disease. When his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, the family pulled together to help Jan overcome the disease. The diagnosis also served as a wake up call for the family to begin living a healthier lifestyle. Typical for many of us, Scott’s situation has given him the ability to tie in real life situations and realities with strategies for achieving a healthy lifestyle.
