Anti-Inflammatory Diet – Day 22

anti-inflammatory diet

Join Chicago-area pediatric dietitian Betsy Hjelmgren and her husband, David, as they venture on their own nutrition journey this August. Their vlog contains all the laughs, fun banter and tips you would expect from a great couple attempting a restrictive diet rollercoaster. Tune in as Betsy learns to truly appreciate the difficulties clients and families face when embarking on a new diet with nothing but a few handouts and some encouragement from others!

Betsy and David both weighed in this morning, and share here the results to this point.

Plus, what can one eat at Wrigley Field if you are avoiding processed foods? That’s a great question! If you’d like to know your options, don’t miss David’s testimonial to his experience at the Cubs game yesterday!
