If you have been following the Kansas City Dietitian from the midwest then you know that our long awaited spring is here, and we earned it one snow day at a time. But if those snow days have left you with a few extra numbers on the scale then it’s time to retrain your brain with the Kansas City Dietitians’ Spring Clean Eating 2-Week Challenge.
