Author Bobbie Jo Lieberman is an award-winning writer, editor and journalist with special interests in natural healing, animals and spirituality. She grew up in a salad-loving family, inheriting the sassy â€œtouchâ€ from her mom. Her focus shifted to an organic, low-glycemic, plant-source diet when she was diagnosed with type II diabetes in 2008. Her creation of Sassy Salads has enabled her to control her diabetes without medication. Bobbie and coauthor/husband Kenny Weber often take their horsesâ€”and Sassy Saladsâ€”on the road when they travel to equine endurance rides around the country. Kenny and Bobbie are available for Sassy Salad training and demonstrations.
Coauthor Kenny Weber is a software designer and mechanical engineer who enjoys building things, riding his Morgan mare Annakate and participating in the sport of endurance riding. He considers himself to be on a lifelong healing quest of nutrition and healthy food. In the kitchen, he specializes in creating homemade sauerkraut and living sprouts. When not making Sassy Salads, Kenny and Bobbie enjoy riding their horses on their ranch trails near the Texas Hill Country west of San Antonio.
