Carlie Beau ,

Trailblazer RDs

I started following Jessica and Wendy during my dietetic internship in 2017 and I have always loved their energy, bestie story, and how they continue to evolve and be unapologetically themselves in the health and wellness space. This podcast always has timely and relatable topics which keeps me up with the trends and gives me clarity and reassurance to living a well balanced Life.

One of my favorites!

As a fellow RD, this is one of my personal favorite dietitian podcasts to listen to! I love the inclusive lens and the anti diet/gentle nutrition nuance.

My favorite podcast

I enjoy listening to Jess and Wendy, they are very transparent and inclusive in all their episodes and with their featured guests. I have learned that intuitive eating not only benefits body healthy but overall healthy such as hair and beauty. Listening to this tips helped me to be more aware of the signs of what my body may be lacking in and how to incorporate health habits. Thank you ladies!!
