Absolutely! Keeping nutrition simple and stripping away packaged and processed foods while learning more about where to source real, nourishing whole foods can be very economical. Eating healthy does not have to break the bank! It just takes some education and Wendie is here to help!
This sounds like it takes a lot of time. How will I be able to work healthy eating into my busy schedule?
Wendie’s secret is learning to meal prep, education, and keeping it as simple as possible. No one has time to purchase a million ingredients and prepare meals after a long day of work. Learning to plan ahead and prep meals and snacks to have on hand to grab and go will take you far in your journey to healthier living.
Should I count calories?
Wendie believes in a whole foods approach to nutrition. While calories and scales have a time and place, Wendie is a “non-diet” dietitian and she focuses on how nutrient dense meals are instead of calories. For a total Lifestyle Shift, focusing on nutrient density over numbers.
What is your #dailydoseofgreens?
As a whole, we do not get enough greens in our diet. Wendie’s approach to getting in your daily dose of greens is a great way to slip extra nutrients into your day. One of the easiest things to do is slip them into a smoothie in the mornings for nutrition that can be easily absorbed by your body. They support your body and its natural detoxification pathways, are easy on digestion, and will provide tons of energy. You will find that you won’t need your coffee anymore!

What is the difference between a health coach. nutritionist, and dietitian?
A Registered Dietitian or Registered Dietitian Nutritionist can use the supporting title of health coach, wellness coach, or a nutritionist, but a nutritionist and a health coach can’t call themselves a Registered Dietitian.
Registered dietitians are trained in the scientific, pathophysiology, and nutritional therapy aspect of nutrition, and are also trained in diverse aspects of nutrition counseling. Dietitians can also specialize in culinary/food science, community nutrition, coaching, counseling, women’s health, clinical care, sports nutrition, and more. Registered Dietitians have a diverse background in the sciences, which is extremely helpful in understanding and applying nutrition components to facilitate the appropriate lifestyle changes.
