Feedback on "What Can I Eat? India"

When I used “What Can I Eat? India”, my patient and I bonded & shared more than ever despite our cultural differences and my limited experiences in Indian cooking.”
Melanie, RD, Ohio

At our first RD visit we cover basic carbohydrate counting and I promise to give the patient a "What Can I Eat, India" Discussion Book at the next visit. The patient is enticed to return and we use the Discussion Book together which creates a lively and culturally meaningful discussion.
