The perfectly portioned, nutritious recipes are designed by Dara Bergen, RD a Registered Dietitian and Certified NYS Nutritionist. Each recipe is full of important antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, designed to make you look and feel great.

As a last-minute tip to make sure that dress fits great, Dara Bergen, RD, suggests, "Make sure you choose only low sodium recipes, drink lots of water and go for a daily walk the week before your special day!"
