Our latest guests, dietitian Casey Seiden and her husband Danny, have virtually stopped by for a Double Date and to help us ring in our show’s 21st episode (it can drink now!). In our chat, we discuss the best eateries in New York City, the benefits of grocery shopping in person rather than going for delivery, and the best way you can overcome a picky eater’s precise palate.
What do beekeeping, cappuccino and eating well all have in common? Well they’re just a smidgen of the interests our latest guests, fellow dietitian Judy Barbe and her husband Ken, like to dabble in. For this double date, we discuss Judy’s kitchen experiments (both successful and disastrous), Ken’s awe-inspiring range of hobbies, and how each of them would clear out the other’s wardrobe.
Light some candles, turn on the stove and maybe refill those air fresheners because we have a brand new double date. Our guests this evening (well, episode) are dietitian nutritionist Zach Cordell and his artist wife Alyssa. On this double date, we discuss costume parties, reminisce about McDonalds birthdays in the ‘80s, and suggests ways your own kitchen can accommodate for diabetes.
It’s crowded in this podcast because we’ve got another Double Date scheduled for this week. Bringing the wine and the fun are husband-and-wife, pediatrician-and-dietitian power couple Brian and Heather Liddell of the blog The Doctor and the Dietitian. On this episode, the two of them discuss their experiences teaching their own children to eat nutritiously, why you should minimize how often you spend looking at screens, and how you can help your kid get over their picky eating habits.
It’s time to get out the good china and whip up some fancy food because we have a brand new double date! Our guests are fellow dietitian and podcaster Mary Purdy and her husband, content creator and producer extraordinaire Keith Hitchcock. In the next hour and a half they chat about how they share and split up fitness and cooking in their home, and endure our first ever lightning round!
A phone running at 50% charge will still operate roughly well as it would at 80% or 90%. The same cannot be said for people who have gone too long without sleep or don’t sleep well at all. In this episode—which coincidentally lines up with National Sleep Awareness Week—Mandy and Taco discuss their own ups and downs sharing a bed over the years, debate their differing sleep philosophies, and suggests some ways you can bring a little fun to bed.
Mandy and Taco have made another double-date reservation in honor of National Nutrition Month, featuring our very first non-nutrition guests! Financial planner Emily Zeigler and her husband Kevin stop by to discuss how finances tie into healthy eating and keeping fit, as well as how they went from living out of a car, to moving into a cramped apartment, to their comfortable life together today.
It’s February, which means that immune system strength has dropped along with the temperature, paving the way for cold and flu season. Thankfully your favorite nutritional couple has their own health regimens to prevent sickness or, if you’ve already caught that bug, speed up the recovery process.
In their chat, Mandy and Taco lay out what remedies of worked best for them, suggest the best ways spouses can be (or not be) there for each other when one of them is ill, and discuss several tried and true tips for preventing even getting sick in the first place. Also, check out VIP page on Facebook to find out the meal Mandy whipped up for her and Taco for Valentine’s Day.
Taco’s back from his fulfilling—and mildly chaotic—trip to India, and after catching us all up with the details of his trek he and Mandy tackle a subject that a lot of people are sensitive to at this time of year: dieting. Right around now, people start falling off the diet they resolved to stick to for New Year’s, but rather that being due to a lack of willpower it could be because the diet itself is not sustainable and conflicts with one’s eating disposition. This is why we’re advocating for intuitive eating, which grooves better with how each person eats and doesn’t get caught up in the statistical minutiae of other highly touted diets.
In our chat, we discuss the 10 core principles of intuitive eating, how we all have different eating personalities—as well as how those personalities affect dieting—and why couples need to be careful when one or both of them are on a diet.
Mandy and Taco have made a reservation for a double date with registered dietitians and bloggers Stephen and Elise Compston, who discuss how healthy eating helped ignite their relationship, the key to keeping your kitchen tasks balanced, and how they keep each other on the right track.
