About Dr. Falquier
Sabrina A. Falquier Montgrain, MD, CCMS
Dr. Falquier (Fall-Key-A) is a board certified internal medicine and culinary medicine physician. She is bilingual and multicultural, born and raised in Mexico City to Swiss and American parents. This unique multilingual and multicultural perspective has shaped her work tremendously, as she has seen and experienced that our unique backgrounds, culture, taste, cultural experiences and historic expectations shape our health tremendously. Dr. Falquier worked as a primary care doctor for a prestigious multi-specialty group in San Diego, California, for over 15 years. In 2016 she began incorporating culinary medicine into her practice and the community and in 2020 founded Sensations Salud, LLC which focuses on awakening the senses around ingredient acquisition and food preparation while empowering people to better health through nutritional knowledge and culinary literacy. Dr. Falquier is highly involved with Olivewood Gardens and Learning Center in National City, California. A non-profit organization that empowers all age groups through gardening, nutrition and culinary literacy. She acts as their consulting physician and has been on their board of directors since 2017. Her work there can now be seen through the powerful documentary: The Kitchenistas which released in March 2021. She is also on the advisory board for the Culinary Medicine Specialist Board, focusing on permeating culinary medicine into medical schools, health systems and the community. She is also voluntary clinical professor at the Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science, UC San Diego Health Sciences. Dr. Falquier promotes culinary medicine throughout San Diego and internationally in a variety of ways and to varied age groups and audiences including: hands-on cooking events, cooking demonstrations, both live and virtual, animated speaking engagements, expert panels, recipe development, recipe modifications for optimization of health, and active social media presence. She has been interviewed regarding food and health by media outlets including the Washington Post, The Union Tribune, Edible San Diego, San Diego Magazine, CBS news, TeleMundo and Sharp Health News. Additionally, she is a member of Les Dames d’Escoffier International, and was recognized yearly, from 2009-2020, as one of San Diego’s Top Doctors.

SensationsSalud me ha enseñado a comer más nutritivamente sin sacrificar lo sabroso. Me encanta seguir los consejos de la Dra Sabrina y ponerlos en práctica cuidando mi presupuesto.
He aprendido a comer una gran variedad de verduras a diario; hago un arcoíris con ellas, aparte la sazón realza sus sabores naturales.
Gracias por sus consejos y su buen humor.

I have had the wonderful experience of attending Dr. Falquier Montgrain’s events both in person and through livestream/social media. She has an amazing breadth of knowledge and is able to convey the information in such a way that every participant can easily understand. I continually refer friends to attend and follow knowing that they will also gain from her insights. She is awesome!

I loved how everyone in my family learned something new in Sabrina’s class — from my kids who are novices in the kitchen, to myself, who’s spent decades in the foodservice industry. It was fun, digestible and full of time saving tips for healthy meals. Could not recommend it more highly!

Me encanta el enfoque de estas charlas: Salud+Comer rico+cuidar presupuesto.
En poco tiempo se trata de manera global un tema: Fortalecer sistema inmunológico, cosas que se pueden hacer para controlar el estrés.
Los tips son claros y fáciles de implementar y recordar: estación de hidratación, verduras arcoiris, las matematicas del azúcar.
Muy interesante y divertido escuchar a la Dra. Sabrina.
Sabrina is a true inspiration and one of the coolest women out there. I've known and collaborated with her since 2016. She is innovative, connects easily with all audiences, committed to developing high-quality programs and events, and passionate about supporting our community.

Le quiero agradecer a la Dra Falquier Montgrain y Sensations Salud por darme siempre buenos consejos de alimentación y buenas ideas para preparar los alimentos. Por ejemplo, rostizar las verduras con aceite de oliva o aguacate. También he aprendido a preparar una gran variedad de cereales como couscous, lentejas, habas, trigo, avena, etc. Mi gran orgullo es poder preparar la receta del humus en mi propia cocina.
Gracias Dra Sabrina!

Gracias SensationsSalud por tantos buenos consejos. Mi receta favorita es la de la avena con yogurt, leche de avena, extracto de vainilla, canela y miel en frascos que se conservan bien hasta una semana en el refrigerador. Es un desayuno muy nutritivo, fácil y rápido. Solo hay que agregar frutas. Delicioso!
