Dr. Robert Atkins, the father of the low-carb lifestyle, passed away in 2003 but his memory lives on with his Atkins Nutritional Approach — an eating plan touted to rebalance your nutrition so that you improve your energy level, your appearance and gain a sense of well-being. Dr Atkins’ widow and director of the Atkins Foundation, Veronica, was invited on the “Today” show to share a healthy taste from her new cookbook, "Atkins for Life Low-Carb Cookbook."
