Marianne "Mimi" S. Murray, 56, of Thornton, a dietitian who counseled students at Bryn Mawr and Haverford Colleges, died of breast cancer Tuesday, April 12, at home. When she gave her annual wellness lectures to Bryn Mawr freshmen, she dressed to underscore her message. Her attire included carrot slippers, broccoli and banana earrings, and a necklace of plastic grapes and orange, lemon and lime slices. The necklace adorned a T-shirt with the logo "All Foods Can Fit. " She wanted to get the students' attention, her husband, Clem Murray, said, and routinely received ovations after she spoke.

Johanna Goldschmidt Friedman, 91, who became a dietitian in this country after fleeing Nazi Germany, died Tuesday after a brief illness at the hospital of the Philadelphia Geriatric Center in the Logan section. Mrs. Friedman, one of 10 children, was educated in Germany, studying physical education, nutrition and home economics. In 1934, as Hitler solidified his power, the family left the country, and her siblings scattered to the United States, Palestine and the Netherlands. Mrs. Friedman went to Holland, where she ran a children's camp for several years.

LAURINE SIMONS didn't just read a newspaper or magazine. If she saw something interesting - and this well-rounded woman didn't have to turn many pages before a gem of information caught her eye - she would clip it out and show it to family and friends. That was just the way Laurine was, not only finding fascinating accounts of life on the planet to educate herself, but passionate about sharing them with others. She contributed her knowledge to two self-help books, wrote poetry and encouraged others to read through literacy programs.

To help the Phillies reach their first postseason since 1993, Pat Gillick hopes to leave no stone unturned. And fewer doughnuts eaten. In the off-season, he approached Frank Coppenbarger, the Phillies' equipment and team travel manager, about bringing in a dietitian to evaluate and possibly improve the types of foods and drinks players consume before and after games, and on flights across the country. Gillick thought better nutrition might be another way to keep his players in top physical condition.

Karen Wilson has taken her career in nutrition down to its common denominator: What good is it to worry about fat content when people are just plain hungry? So Wilson, 41, a registered dietitian from Penn Valley, has abandoned the popular concerns about fat, protein, and getting enough bran in your diet. She is simply fighting hunger. "I have often had to take off my R.D. [registered dietitian's] cap, which cares about excess fat in one's diet, and realize that the long-term dangers of excess fat pale in comparison to the long-term effects of undernutrition and poverty, especially for kids," she said.

If you think the diet you're supposed to follow to make your heart healthier means having to give up the likes of soft pretzels, Tastykakes, bacon and eggs, steaks, and hoagies, you're right, said Susan Rago, a registered dietitian for the HIP Rutgers Health Plan. But how does black bean soup or tomato-basil bisque sound? And would appetizers such as stuffed, wild mushrooms or Tuscan white bean dip with toasted pita chips whet your appetite for chicken in wine sauce, curried chicken salad, poached salmon with dill sauce or grilled turkey with papaya salsa?

Now that the food industry has heard the siren call for substitutions, there's no reason, if you're on a special diet, to miss much of anything. Vegan whoopee pies, gluten-free chicken nuggets, dairy-free ice creams, and wheat-free bagels abound. "These days you can go to a restaurant or market and know you have choices," says registered dietitian Tricia Stefankiewicz. "We've seen a big shift, even in the last two or three years. " Some of these edible oxymorons even taste good, or at the very least they can fulfill a craving.

Jerry Quinn loves talking baseball with Amber Badeau, a full-time registered dietitian at the ShopRite in Olney, where he has bought groceries for years. Badeau, 26, is a Phillies fan, all right. She also sees opportunity in these encounters, a chance to chat with Quinn, 78, who still works at Citizens Bank Park, about making smart choices in the supermarket aisles. This may take a while, as evidenced by Quinn's shopping cart this day. It's loaded with ingredients for a special dinner he saw on a cooking show: a layer of ground beef topped with cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, Tater Tots, and shredded cheese.

Almost six years ago, longtime registered dietitian Mary Ann Moylan traded her job at Lehigh Valley Hospital for what might strike some as a strange choice. She'd be doing the same counseling, educating, and advocating for smart food choices, but inside the Giant Super Food Store in Willow Grove, an hour's commute from her Allentown home. "This is where we should be, on the preventive side, helping people stay healthy," Moylan says, "instead of getting them to eat healthy after they get sick.

Be honest. Do you eat fewer than two meals a day? Are fruits, veggies and dairy foods rarely part of your meals? Has illness or discomfort changed the kind, or amount, of food you eat? Is it hard for you to shop, cook and/or feed yourself? Has a limited budget kept you from buying the food you need? Have you lost or gained 10 or more pounds - unintentionally - in the last six months? Do you take three or more different prescribed or over-the-counter drugs a day?

Arlene McGurk had to call for extra help yesterday morning when an unusual - and seemingly unending - line formed at the Metropolitan Bakery outlet in Reading Terminal Market. "It was like they were kids at Christmastime," said McGurk, a sales associate. "Nobody asked for fat-free. Nobody asked me about how many calories [anything had]. Or [whether anything] had butter or eggs. " The American Dietetic Association was in town. They snapped up rolls, carrot cake, apple spice cake and so many Danishes that McGurk said she'd had to get an emergency shipment.
