1: #twinning (Who We Are!)

Nutrition

If you looked at your email the other day I by accident leaked our podcast early, sorry for the spam! This time Marie of Pearls of Nutrition and I are releasing our first podcast! After much blood, sweat, tears and some MAJOR technical difficulties, we bring you Nutrition Genius Radio.

We both LOVE nutrition and are complete nerds when it comes to all things food and fitness but at the same time we don’t take ourselves too seriously so while we are self proclaimed nutrition geniuses we know fair well that we do not know everything about nutrition (and we certainly know almost nothing about technical things.) This podcast is for you and we want to change your life one piece of pastured raised bacon at a time.

We hope you will laugh along with us and enjoy the ride. Thanks for tuning in ūüôā

We hope you love this as much as we do and if there are any topics you want covered leave us a comment and/or question below.

Xoxo
