Episode 59_Prepping Good Food for Your Dietary Needs with Adam Rice
After surgery, usually comes staying at home and preparing your meals. Part of the weight loss surgery journey is preparing and eating good food, even when you have specific dietary needs to look out for.
This also applies to the mums, our home cooks, who often have little time to sit down and are expected to come up with something for the family meals. Considering each family member’s dietary needs and budget, create food everyone will enjoy. My guest for today will give you tips on planning, shopping, and preparing chef-quality food while staying within your budget and saving time.
