Where in the world have Sassy and Pearl Been? + Nutrition in the News

Sooo our bad. Team Nutrition Genius needed to take a little (eek, okay REALLY long) hiatus. We practice what we preach, ya know? We had to prioritize our health even when that means taking a team time out from bringing you all the nutrition nerdyness.

The good news is, like always we are #twinning and our schedules have normalized enough for us to get the show back up and running! Moving forward we plan to continue bringing you Nutrition Genius Radio on a monthly basis. Tune in this week to hear…

Topics covered this episode:

Where in the world have Sassy and Pearl been?

What’s up with the documentary What the Health? Should you believe it?

Is coconut oil going to kill you?

…and more!

#52 Nutrition Genius Radio Turns 1!

1yearpodcast

Can you believe it?

In April 2014 Sassy helped Dietitian Cassie co-host episode #108 of the podcast Low Carb Conversations after which she immediately called Pearl and said “we need to start our own podcast.” Since Pearl loves talking she of course immediately agreed to Sassy’s scheming and together we set to work on figuring out how one even starts a podcast.

Shocker, we made it more complicated than it needed to be.

BUT! After all the ideas, the re-recorded episodes, and Sassy curse word cover ups, on August 7th 2014 Episode #1 #Twinning made it’s debut on……. YouTube?

Yep, that’s right. We were so technology challenged it took us months to get on iTunes and Stitcher.

We were totally hated on for our stick figure graphics (they are hilarious and we are super proud of them) but who cares. Then, in a blur, were we on iTunes and Stitcher and the stick figure graphics were no more. Shortly after we hit iTunes we got a big unexpected surprise. We made it to #1 on the iTunes Fitness and Nutrition New and Noteworthy list.

n&nfitnessnutrition11.26.14

We can still remember that moment so clearly. We were actually on a call together and one of us pulled up iTunes to check our status in the rankings. There was a lot of screaming involved.

Nutrition Genius Radio is our baby. It’s something we have put our heart and soul into. As two dietitians endorsing a different message (not that ‘eat real food’ should be different) it opened us up to criticism from others in our profession. Not only that, the personal touch and humor we add to it left us vulnerable to criticism on both a personal and professional level. But we don’t care. What we care about is providing you with evidence based nutrition information in an entertaining format. Or, edutaining, as Sassy would say. We care about spreading the message that real food is the way to health and longevity. We do this because we want to help you. It may sound crazy but…

We want you to put us out of business.

[inlinetweet prefix=”We want you to put us out of business -Team Nutrition Genius” tweeter=”” suffix=”null”][/inlinetweet]

We want you to be so knowledgeable about what you eat and the way you live that you don’t need us. We want you to rock your sleep, stress management, and food choices so much that we don’t have jobs because what we care about is a healthier tomorrow.

But we need your help to get there.
