Several months ago, my wife and I attended the Southern Women’s Show at the Agricenter.

We sponsor several senior exhibitions each year and we like to find out what other EXPO’s are doing. While there, my wife pointed out the cooking demonstration that was to take place soon. She is always trying to be an even better cook and suggested we attend.

That’s when we meet a most amazing woman Almetria Turner. She was demonstrating how to prepare and cook healthy meals.

She also told her story of how, as a young woman, she had gotten overweight and had developed some very serious health issues as a result. Turner made the decision to change her lifestyle and become healthy again.

You can read her story on page 6 of this issue of The Best Times and see her photograph on the front cover. We are also pleased to announce that we will begin having articles and healthy recipes from her in future editions.

We hope that her story and her desire to teach us how to prepare our food for a healthier lifestyle will benefit each of us.

Here are some of her accomplishments:

Two times Southern Women’s Memphis Celebrity Guest Chef, Season Nine MasterChef finalist, Nashville. She has been featured in many venues, including the “Today Show,” WREG-TV, Redbook, Women’s Running Magazine, Yahoo Health and The Huffington Post.
