Podcast 14: Man Flu Season


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.


Mandy popped by Mary Purdy’s Nutrition Show podcast to chat all things yoga and meditation. Give it a listen here! You can also expect to hear Mary and her husband Keith on our show in late March.
