It was great chatting with her and Jennifer Perillo, editor of Working Mom Magazine, about tactics for doing just that when you’re a busy parent.
This was one of my favorite installments of Wellness Wednesday so far. Heidi Lovie and Amie Valpone of The Healthy Apple joined me to chat about the various ways you can treat hypothryroidism with diet.
