#76 The Show About Nothing (We’re Back…For Now!)

NGR logo

Guess who’s back…. back again….

Don’t get too riled up, we aren’t back for good and this podcast contains (very) limited nutrition information.

We have received so many messages about our lack of presence in the podcasting world these past few months it has been overwhelming! We are so grateful to be surrounded by so many people that care about real food and wanted to send a HUGE thank you to those of you that reached out and are still listening. This show is just some updates about what has been going on in our lives that has kept us absent from yours and a little banter, as always. If you are looking for nutrition information or typically skip over the beginning 10 minutes of each episode this show is not for you but if you love a little sass with nutrition sprinkles we’ve got you covered! We shall be back again in the future just in a much more limited context. As always, you can reach us at our websites below.

Guess who’s back…. back again….

Don’t get too riled up, we aren’t back for good and this podcast contains (very) limited nutrition information.

We have received so many messages about our lack of presence in the podcasting world these past few months it has been overwhelming! We are so grateful to be surrounded by so many people that care about real food and wanted to send a HUGE thank you to those of you that reached out and are still listening. This show is just some updates about what has been going on in our lives that has kept us absent from yours and a little banter, as always. If you are looking for nutrition information or typically skip over the beginning 10 minutes of each episode this show is not for you but if you love a little sass with nutrition sprinkles we’ve got you covered! We shall be back again in the future just in a much more limited context. As always, you can reach us at our websites below.

Nutrition & Mental Health

Did you know approximately every 1 in 5 adults have been diagnosed with a mental illness? So this week Nutrition Genius Radio brings you an episode about mental health & nutrition. We touch on the statistics, some of the most common mental health illnesses, how to maintain or improve mental health (whether you have a diagnosis or not), and of course how nutrition plays a role in all of it! Spoiler alert: we may even tell you to #JERF – just eat real food!

Note: We are not doctors or therapists! If you think that you may have a mental illness, please talk to your doctor. It is OKAY to get help if you need it. Put your health first!

Topics covered this episode:

What is Mental Illness

Top 3 Mental Illness Diagnoses & Nutrition to Help

Supplements to help fight Mental Illness
