Nutrition plus practical tips

This is a great show for dietitians/nutritionists, health professionals, and everyone else. Great information shared in a concise way and calls you to do one good thing for your health while discussing the bigger picture - cumulative effects of making small behavior changes at a time.

Inspiring- That’s what Ellie is with every podcast interview! After listening, I’m find
myself pondering my one good thing.
This episode made me acutely aware of my
Lack of variety in leafy greens and how many
more ways they can be easily used.
Thank you Ellie. Your guests are as awesome
as you. I look forward to more inspiration.

I don’t write reviews…

But this podcast has been so helpful to me, and I hope others find it. Practical, easy concepts to apply, no shaming…I’ve already made some changes to my eating because of what I’ve learned in just three episodes. Enjoy!
