Affordable Nutrition was created in 2010 with the author, Jessica Bauman and photographer, Chris Bauman. This original project was a challenge as it combined a variety of design aesthetics to produce a workbook that was useful and beautiful. We used articles and nutritional content from Bauman College and created elements that highlighted and illustrated this material using sidebars, tables and charts, image/caption matrixes, worksheets, and cookbook recipes.
In 2019 we updated and re-designed it as Affordable Nutrition: Second Edition, a 228-page 8.5x11-inch perfect-bound volume. A gorgeous new cover was created with Chris Bauman's stunning photograph and many up-to-date articles were included.
In 2020, this incredibly useful book was redesigned as a printable Ebook that can be used on desktops, tablets, iPads and smart phones. This Ebook features internal bookmarks, an interactive Table of Contents and Recipe Index, as well as hyperlink URLs to external websites for further research. To access the Affordable Nutrition: Second Edition Ebook, please join BaumanWellness.co, which is a password-protected online learning community. Membership also includes exclusive access to Bauman Seasonal Wellness Week presentation materials and access to moderators. [ … Read More ]

"I would like to thank the woman behind this beautiful layout and book design, Phyllis Peterson. I have never worked with anyone who is more organized, more dedicated and yet, utterly a pleasure to work with. She has turned my simple words into a beautiful book. As both my co-worker and certainly my friend, thank you for putting this together. I’ve enjoyed it immensely."

"When it comes to creating books of utmost value and integrity, Phyllis Peterson, my book designer, editor, collaborator and innovator, has worked closely with me and my co-authors to produce timeless books that are intelligent and artistic, with highlighted text, charts, tables, photos and other features in both print and interacitve E-Book formats.
"Phyllis has been my editor and book designer for nearly two decades. What I love about her is her passionate embrace of the content we are communicating to our audience. Her work on our Bauman College catalogs and textbooks was very professional and appropriate for a college curriculum.
"Her design philosophy is inspired and creative as well as meticulously attentive to detail and not limited to her personal preferences. Her interactive approach with writers and editors results in engaging graphics and design layouts that are completely appropriate to the subject matter rather than mere "cookie cutter" repetitions or "one-size-fits-all" solutions.
"She is a professional of the highest order, extremely organized, efficient in her work process, thoughtful, creative, and tech-savvy. She is holistic, integrative and radical in bringing technical information to life and is a delight to work with.
"Titles she has designed for us include:
"I will most certainly work with her on future Bauman Wellness projects to enable us to live well during this time of cataclysmic transformation."
