104. Unleash the power of gut health and intuitive eating with type one diabetes with Elisabeth DiDonato

January 30, 2024

On today’s episode, I’m joined by Risely’s new coach and dietitian Elisabeth DiDonato. After being a vegan for years and battling her own health issues, Elisabeth learned a lot about gut health, finding the right foods for your body, and the importance of holistic health.
