Behind the Mystery and In the Kitchen with Ingrid Hoffmann
September 10, 2018
We're Talking Everything From Food to Medicine
Welcome to another episode of the Balancing Act!
First up is Behind the Mystery, where we’re investigating a rare blood cancer which causes overproduction of red blood cells. It’s called Polycythemia Vera (PV), which can result in serious health problems such as heart attack or stroke. Though there is no cure, patients can keep their PV under control through early diagnosis, dedicated physicians, advances in research, and evolving treatments.
Then, The Balancing Act host Julie Moran is in the kitchen with celebrity chef Ingrid Hoffmann. Using ingredients from Star Fine Foods, Ingrid is whipping up sun dried tomato and balsamic chicken skinny alfredo. We’re all about pasta without the guilt!
Don’t forget—we’re kicking off Balancing Act Deals this coming October. All you have to do is text the “Balance” to 21000, or visit BalancingActDeals.com.
