    Diagnosed with AMD, I’m interested in nutrient & supplement information. Also I have always had halitosis. Would a certain probiotic(lactobacillus salivarius)beneficial?

    We made these tonight and they were fantastic! loved the BBQ sauce to accompany the recipe as well…served them with green beans tossed with garlic/olive oil and then sweet potato biscuits (made with coconut flour and 3 ingredients)….posted a photo to my Twitter and Instagram accounts to rave about it! Thank you again!
