Podcast 15: Double Date — Financial Planning for Couples with Emily and Kevin Zeigler


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.


To make the most of this National Nutrition Month, we offer special—and free!—services for brides-to-be and newlywed couples starting out on the healthy path.

If you and yours are looking to get into meal planning and track your nutrition, be sure to grab your free Bride & Couples Starter Guide eBook on our site!

Mandy and Taco are on the lookout for couples who live happily and healthily together. If you have a story of your own, email us at podcast@nutritionnuptials.com.

Through her service How Green is Your Money, she also helps clients make the most of their money in a way that is both personally beneficial and socially responsible.
