#LunchBreakLIVE, Dr. Angie Sadeghi, MD – Gastroenterology, is a board certified gastroenterologist who incorporates Plant-Based/Lifestyle Medicine into her practice is our guest chef! We discuss the new FORKS OVER KNIVES short film (link: https://bit.ly/2LRri8v) about Brooklyn, New York Borough President, Eric Adams who reversed his life threatening diabetes with visual, vascular and neurological complications by changing to a “whole foods, plant-based” diet using the The New York Times Bestseller, “Forks Over Knives Plan” (link: https://bit.ly/2uN0CiP) as his guide. Please share this post with anyone you know who has any form of diabetes.
Dr. Angie shows us how to put a healthy meal together in her office that is full of fiber and micro nutrients that shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes to prepare. Most importantly, these healthy meals can prevent and reverse disease. This salad will make you feel sexier and shredded. Dr. Angie is a fitness enthusiast, a mom, and a doctor.
