We’ve reached the finale of Nutrition Nuptials season 1! Maybe not as high profile as that Game of Thrones episode, but it’s a definite change of pace. Instead of discussion nutrition and exercise, Mandy and Taco are closing out the season by talking about their home turf, the Jersey Shore, which to them is like a year-round vacation. For this final episode before the summer break, Mandy and Taco take you on a guided tour of the Jersey Shore, dish out their favorite restaurants, clubs and activities, and explain why exactly Taco is called “Taco.”

Happy July 4th Weekend! Going to the beach this weekend to celebrate? As a Jersey Shore Girl, you know I love my beach. However, over the summer months we get a million invaders – I mean visitors. And while I love the energy that comes to the shore over these months and meeting new people through SUP classes, the ability to relax on the beach can be challenging. Therefore, Mr E and I have decided to share our Beach Etiquette 101 rules for those of you planning to visit our beloved Jersey Shore this summer. (PS- We are not lake or river people, nor have we ever been. I’m not sure if these same rules apply, but common courtesy never goes out of style.) Continue reading “Beach Etiquette 101”
It’s Friday! That means time to start planning out your weekend and date nights. As part of my Local Jersey Shore Date Nights series, today I’m giving a shout out to a date that adds some physical fitness. You know, before your date night leads to some physical fitness…
This week’s Date Night goes out to my favorite activity, Stand Up Paddle, more commonly known as SUP or paddleboading.

With summer officially here, it’s time you and your significant other took your dates to new territory – the water! Continue reading “SUPer Date!”
A friend and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) colleague recently started a business certifying people in CPR/AED. As a fitness trainer, I need to keep my first aid certifications renewed regularly, and I wanted to give her the business. Plus, she offered to come to my home – what’s more convenient than that??? What was more surprising, was that when I told Mr. E that someone was coming over to do the certification, he immediately asked if he could get certified as well.

How often do you and your significant other enjoy a true “Date Night”? I’m not talking about a night of sitting on the couch watching a movie. I’m talking about a real, honest to goodness, get dressed and put-on-makeup kind of date. The concept of “dating” is not just for teens, single people, or new relationships. It turns out that dating during marriage and long-term relationships is incredibly important for strengthening the partnership. See how that one date night can truly make a difference.
