You literally are what you eat. Your health is influenced by nothing as much as what you eat. Let us teach you how to eat deliciously in a way that improves health and wellness, not the opposite. It's not hard. It just requires some knowledge and simple solutions we can teach you." - Dr. Matt Dawson This dinner's discussion will focus on heart health.
