A little about me….
My name is Dianne and I have had Meniere’s Disease for 8 years. My symptoms started when I was pregnant with my 2nd daughter in 2003. It took 2 1/2 years for a diagnosis and as a result I had to drastically modify my diet to eliminate/reduce my sodium, caffeine, sugar, alcohol intake. It can be a daily struggle and challenging at times living with this disease and a dietary restriction, but I enjoy finding new ways to still enjoy food and flavor by finding and adapting recipes. I have learned that food can be healthy and still be delicious! Being challenged can make you a better person, and with a positive attitude we can thrive.

Serves 4.
