Anti-Inflammatory Diet – Day 26

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

David and Betsy persist with the last 6 remaining days of the anti-inflammatory diet.

Betsy discusses her role as the household lunch matron, and her reasoning for maintaining this job long past its maturity. Additionally, she was pleased with the meal she made tonight, but not sure what will be edible tomorrow evening after working late and coming home to a hungry house.
