Festive and healthy food: an interview with Patient Council member Sólveig Sigurðardóttir

Patient Council Steering Committee member Sólveig Sigurðardóttir was interviewed on 29 November by the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service – Ríkisútvarpið, or RÚV for short, which is an independent public service broadcaster, comprising television, radio and online services. The main objective of the National Broadcasting Service is to inform, educate and entertain, and Sólveig’s interview did all of these things.

Solveig discussed her life story and her journey to health, which includes tackling her own MS diagnosis, along with her personal development and new lifestyle, which sees her as a leading light in the Clean Eating Movement – in Iceland and beyond.

Working with Doctor Erla Gerður Sveinsdóttir, she helps people improve their lifestyle, which includes support and training around how to prepare – and enjoy -whole, healthy food, which is a key antidote to yo-yo dieting.
