How to manage cooking with chronic illness?
For individuals managing sarcoidosis, or many other chronic conditions, it can be extremely beneficial to pay close attention to nutrition.
Klara Knezevic, RD, LD and I appeared on the very first episode of Let’s Talk Sarcoidosis: On the Road. We invited host Dorothea McGuire into our Greenbelt office to see firsthand what it is like to visit us at Rebecca Bitzer & Associates.
Healthy cooking for managing nutrition and Sarcoidosis.
Here are our recipes
