It was another great night here at digestive disease center! We Bocwa’d with the best of them for our monthly weight loss class. A big thanks to Kristin for teaching us last night! Everyone was keeping pace and burning calories.
We capped off the night with a Roasted Vegetable Salad with a Raspberry balsamic dressing.
There is some exciting times on the horizon here, as I am in the middle of forming a cooking youtube channel for everyone to learn to cook these healthy recipes and I am on my way to Boston for a Low FODMAP conference. For all my IBS and Low FODMAP patients I will be bringing back the latest research!
In case you couldn’t make the class here is the roasted vegetable recipe. Talk to everyone soon!
