Oh man, you're really bumming me out here-- because I was planning on downing at least over 20 pounds of chocolate on Valentine's Day eve, all by myself. But it's all dark chocolate. Isn't dark chocolate supposed to be good for you though? I mean all the anti-oxidants and all? Just kidding. I couldn't help myself.

Thanks so much for this new feature! I am very nutrition and health aware, but you are giving me some new info - impressive. Keep up the great work. One request: would it be possible for you to add a transcript of the broadcast to the section on this page where we can choose to listen or download the broadcast each week? It would be so helpful to be able to quickly go through the written version to get the correct spelling of something, rather than to have to listen to the broadcast again and guess at the spelling. Thanks so much!

Hello Happy Listener!
Thank you for all your encouraging words on Simple Nutrition. I wish that we were able to type out each podcast, but that's not possible at this time. If you have any questions on spellings, studies, or information, I would be glad to answer them! My email is listed under the "contacts" section of this website here: Feel free to write any time. Also, at the top of this page is a link to Brandee's "Clean Living Coach" page on Facebook. She would love to answer any questions there as well. I am so glad you are learning and growing alongside us!
