The Bite of History
Patriarchy Messing with Me and Food for 85 Years
An Autobiography by Caroline Anaya
Nutrition Scientist & Fitness Professional
History is priceless. It is information, knowledge, education. Tells you about your past. Change is ongoing. Learning history offers perspective. How we got to this place. Hints as to where we are going.
Much of your “intuitive” knowledge has filtered down from my generation. Especially about food, nutrition and women’s issues. It’s fascinating how much has changed since 1932, not that long ago.
Mom taught me to cook, clean and care for my family. And more than that. The women of her generation had risen up; passed the right to vote. She put ideas in my head. Saw to it that I got an education. I studied about foods and nutrition: my life-long passion.
All that helped, but there is no way my Mom could have prepared me for all that life handed me. For the “facts of life” were obscure to her and all women for generations back.
This book is my story…
I take you through the decades as I lived them, sharing the changes in attitude and practices around food, nutrition, and women’s issues. Always challenging the relentless bite of history… professionally and personally.
