Team Nutrition Genius Changes!

IMG_3329Dear friends, family and fans,

As the season changes so does our business and blog. As many of our podcast listeners may already know we are planning to split our blogs to better align with our target markets and our passions. Don’t worry it’s not a breakup, we still enjoy giggling over Skype together while recording our podcast (that is still continuing) and will probably be spotted hiking together and/or cooking up a storm together. Sassy and Pearl will still save the world one bacon wrapped avocado at a time.

This website will be for our podcast and any future joint projects so, stay tuned! For more information from the two of us….

 Laura’s Website: www.thesassydietitian.com 
 Marie’s Website: www.pearlsofnutrition.com 

If you have any questions please feel free to ask us. We will have separate newsletters as well so you will receive information separately from us both soon. We understand you signed up for Team Nutrition Genius and if you only want to follow one of us (or neither of us) we understand, but will be sad to see you go!

We are so thankful for all of you and your support. Change can be scary but we are looking forward to the successes that this growth will bring us. See you on our blogs and the podcast!

xoxo,

Sassy & Pearl
