Side Piece with Melissa Pfeister

As a full-time mom of two maniacs under 5, a wife, nutritionist and a health & wellness coach, I can use a little something saucy on the side. Welcome to Side Piece, a place I come to get away from the 24/7 craziness of life. Whether talking to celebs, Bravolebs or athletes, I want to make sure we’re all getting a fun, entertaining and tasty side piece for ourselves.

Life is crazy, we all need an escape on the side.
