Dr Oz: Veggie Pad Thai
Dr Oz talked with The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck about her Celiac Disease diagnosis, symptoms & diet. Elisabeth even wrote a cookbook, Deliciously G-Free, to help Celiac Disease sufferers and their families enjoy favorite meals without the health consequences caused by Gluten in your diet.
According to Dr Oz, you could be suffering the symptoms & not know that you have Celiac Disease. In fact, 99% of people who have the condition don’t know it.
Elisabeth made her Gluten Free Veggie Pad Thai Recipe for Dr Oz and his audience. When the three secret shoppers from earlier in the show sampled the dish, they all loved it. If you try this one at home, be sure to share your results in the comments.
