About Dr. Laura Trice & The Wholesome Junk Food Cookbook

While The Wholesome Junk Food Cookbook is Dr. Laura’s first cookbook, she has spent years perfecting healthy yet great tasting food. In medical school she saw people suffering from illnesses that could have been prevented by better nutrition. She realized that like her patients, she only ate food that tasted great to her. Her passion for healthy, great tasting food led to the founding of Laura’s Wholesome Junk Food in 2001.
