Anti-Inflammatory Eating on a Budget

How can this event help me?

Join us for our upcoming event focused on strategies to support anti-inflammatory eating- on a budget. Led by experienced dietitian Monica Kubizniak, this session is intended to provide practical advice and strategies to help you incorporate anti-inflammatory foods into your diet without straining your finances. For those with chronic conditions like Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis, managing inflammation through nutrition is crucial, though some individuals may be discouraged from making positive dietary changes due to misconceptions that healthy eating comes with a hefty price tag. This webinar aims to ease this myth by offering cost-effective strategies for integrating anti-inflammatory foods into your daily meals.


During our upcoming session, Monica Kubizniak will aim to cover:


  • Understanding Inflammation and Nutrition: Monica explores the relationship between inflammation and diet, providing insight into how certain food choices may impact inflammation levels in the body.
  • Budget-Friendly Nutrition Tips: Learn practical tips and tricks on how to select budget-friendly anti-inflammatory foods to suit your own individual dietary requirements.
  • Meal Planning Made Easy: Monica will share simple yet effective meal planning strategies that prioritize anti-inflammatory ingredients while staying within your budget constraints.
  • Interactive Q&A: Your questions answered live, providing personalised advice and support from a leading expert in the field.


This webinar is ideal for those looking to manage chronic inflammation, improve your overall health, or simply make smarter dietary choices without overspending. Attend our live virtual event at 8pm Wednesday July 24th. Like all of our lifestyle events, we will welcome questions and discussion so we can all hear and learn from each other.
