There is so much information out in the world today regarding nutrition. We don’t know who or what to believe and half of the time we’re still figuring out all the science behind it. Today’s show is a special one as we dive into talking about one of our most favorite topics: nutrition. Nutrition is a critical part of our health and development. It’s all about the connection between what you eat and how you feel. Today on the show we are discussing topics such as diets, all the common fads, methodologies, and the science behind it. We even delve into answering some questions from listeners! I also share my GGB (Goals, Gratitude and Badassery) with you all and some of my favorite skincare brands that I love to use.
