Zucchini Pasta Primavera

What’s your biggest carb craving? Hands down, my favorite carb is pasta.  And I guess potatoes… and bread too.  Oh geez, I know I’m not alone when I admit I love them all.  But I better focus here. Back to the pasta thing… this is why I’m a huge fan of the Miracle Noodle.  There […]

Let Food be Your Medicine

A few weeks ago I went to a continuing education seminar for Ideal Protein, and I was blown away even more than I already am by what we do as a group.  We had the opportunity to meet the brains behind the method and catch up with other clinics in the region.  One of the […]

What’s Wrong With Our Fight Against Obesity?
