Episode 24: Jersey Shore Summer Couples Guide

Nutrition-Nuptials-Podcast-Episode-24 Jersey Shore Summer Couples Guide

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.”
