Comments on new McDougall Made Easy DVD

We just got through viewing your new DVD and we are amazed how much we learned.  Thank you for reviewing your health lessons and demonstrating all the delicious looking and easy-to-prepare recipes. Seeing the food actually prepared was very helpful.  Great job, Mary.  We can’t wait to try the recipes out.  Dr. McDougall, you had our mouth’s watering as you tasted the various dishes. The colors were amazing including Sam’s plumage and Mary’s beautiful aprons.
