About The Authors
Judi and Shari Zucker, also known as, "The Double Energy Twins", became Vegetarians at eleven years old. The twins learned at a young age that a nutritious, plant-based diet using whole foods gave them sustained energy and helped them break the mile and two mile track records at Beverly Hills High School. Enthusiastic about sharing their healthy lifestyle and it's benefits, they wrote their first book while still in high school called, How To Survive Snack Attacks...Naturally! (Woodbridge Press 1979). They enjoyed such success that Judi and Shari soon followed with their second book, How to Eat Without Meat...Naturally! (Woodbridge Press 1981), their third book, Double Your Energy with Half the Effort (Hampton Roads 1991), forth book, The Double Energy Diet (Book Publishing Company 2009), fifth book, The Ultimate Allergy-Free Snack Cookbook (Square One Publishers 2012), sixth book, The Ultimate Allergy-Free Cookbook (Square One Publishers 2015) and their seventh book, The Memory Diet: More than 150 Healthy Recipes for the Proper Care and Feeding of your Brain (New Page Books 2016).
The Zucker Twins attended The University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), where they graduated with honors in Ergonomics, the study of human physiology, physical education and nutrition. Following graduation, Judi and Shari served as media specialists for General Mills, representing the company's Nature Valley Granola products. After promoting and demonstrating healthy snacks on a six-week "Snack Sense" tour, the twins realized that they wanted to provide the public with additional information about sound diet and exercise programs. They taught Natural Foods Cooking Classes to adults and children. They continue to lecture all over the country including at their alma mater, UCSB for their Health & Wellness Program.
Although Judi and Shari enjoy successful careers in real estate and interior design, the twins continue to create and compile recipes that are based on clean living with nutritious plant-based, sugar and gluten-free, low-fat, high-fiber foods. In addition, the Zuckers are favorite guests on national and local television talk shows because they are informative and entertaining. They maintain their own fitness by running, swimming and walking daily.
