In This Podcast:
Tanya Batche loved to bake but didn’t necessarily think of it as a career. Looking at the frightening trend of obesity and diabetes, she knew there must be a way to still enjoy, and allow others to enjoy her delicious endeavors. Tanya turned her love of baking into her life’s work, teaching us how to enjoy our treats but making them much healthier. Now you can enjoy her Hunger Bomb Cookies too. As well as making these healthy treats Tanya also helps private clients learn to become healthier too.
