EatingWell in Season cookbook will help readers find healthier ways to shop, cook and live

OAKLAND, Calif., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiser Permanente physician Preston Maring has been recognized by EatingWell, publisher of the award-winning EatingWell Magazine and EatingWell books, for his work to make locally grown food more accessible. Dr. Maring, a long-time primary care physician, authored the introduction for a new cookbook, EatingWell in Season: The Farmers' Market Cookbook, (Countryman Press, 2009) which is released today. In the book, Dr. Maring lays out seven reasons why everyone should use farmers markets as a resource for healthy living.

Dr. Maring began to shop at farmers markets more than 30 years ago and included even more locally grown food in a healthy diet when his son was born in 1980. He brought his personal passion into his profession in 2003, when he founded one of the country's first-ever hospital-based farmers markets at the Kaiser Permanente Oakland Medical Center. The hospital and surrounding community embraced the farmers market; today, Kaiser Permanente has 30 farmers markets and farm stands in four states. Thanks to Dr. Maring's efforts, locally grown produce also is part of patient meals at 23 of Kaiser Permanente's regional hospitals.

"At Kaiser Permanente we believe that ensuring good health extends beyond the doctor's office. Dr. Maring's work to bring farmers markets to our hospitals has been a great program that allows us to offer healthy choices to our members, doctors, staff and communities," said Raymond J. Baxter, Ph.D., senior vice president of Community Benefit, Research and Health Policy at Kaiser Permanente. "Creating healthy communities and a healthy environment are critical to individual health and wellness and have always been a part of our mission."
