Jennifer Rodriguez

"Some advice I sometimes give the Latinx community is to, you know, always emphasize on portion control, you know, eat your traditional foods, but portion control can go a long way, adding healthy fats that are traditional to the Latinx community is very crucial." Jennifer Rodriguez, RD
