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.

Ela, Mexico y San Diego

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!

Tracey, San Diego, California

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!

Ann Jaffe, RDN

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.

Elvira, Mexico

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.

Claire of Olivewood Gardens and Learning Center; National City, California

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!

Leticia, Mexico y San Diego

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!

Gijon, Cd Mexico

I am so impressed by how you use your knowledge and love for both medicine and food to get the importance of culinary medicine out there, Dr. Falquier ❣️
