Meghan Telpner's "Undiet" approach to health

MeghanTelpnerUnDiet.jpgOn this weekend's Food Feature, we meet Meghan Telpner, author of the new book Undiet: Eat your way to vibrant health.

She calls herself a 'nutritionista'. She's actually a certified nutritionist, but nutritionista is more fun to say.
