Tips For Healthier Eating (Without Driving Yourself Crazy)
OK so hello, ‘tis the season for Whole 30, cleanses, and diets of all stripes. And though I am a disciplined person who is proactive about taking care of myself, I just can’t deal with super restrictive diets, especially since winter in Boston is already so hard! I was subsequently thrilled to chat with Alicia Romano, MS, RD, LDN, a registered dietitian/nutritionist at Tufts Medical Center. Alicia’s expertise includes oncology/hematology, gastrointestinal disease, food allergies, liver disease, renal disease, cardiac critical care, and weight management. We talked about healthy eating tactics that won’t totally drive you crazy! See links to things we discussed below the broadcast window!
