For more than 50 years, Beatrice Trum Hunter wrote about food and nutrition. Before there was Diet for a Small Planet, or Moosewood cookbooks; and long before supermarkets carries organic foods, Trum Hunter was an advocate of natural food and healthy living. Author of nearly 40 books including The Natural Foods Cookbook, Gardening without Poisons and The Great Nutrition Robbery.
Later in life she took up the mantle of her mother-in-law, photographer Lotte Jacobi, photographing snowflakes, among other things. Back in 2004, she spoke with NHPR's John Walters on The Front Porch.
Trum Hunter died this week at the age of 98.
