I’m Wendy McCallum, R.H.N. (Registered Holistic Nutritionist), Food Coach & Educator. I help people leave their bad habits behind, and welcome increased energy, weight loss and wellbeing in their place.
I do this using a “simple is better” approach, with a focus on real food, basic nutritional principles, and gradual, realistic changes. My special strength is motivating clients to embrace permanent changes through powerful education and supportive coaching. My approach is non-judgmental & realistic, and my recipes are delicious!
I also specialize in family nutrition, helping busy parents deal with common frustrations like picky eaters & crazy schedules, all the while improving their family’s diet and raising healthy, confident eaters.
One of the reasons my programs work is because I also love to cook & create healthy recipes, and share those with my clients. Let’s face it, if it doesn’t taste good, you won’t keep eating it! That said, I’m not a chef. I’m just a regular mom who figured out — through years of trial and error — how to make great-tasting healthy real food and — more importantly — how to get her kids to actually eat it!
It wasn’t easy, and it sure didn’t happen overnight. Like a lot of moms out there, I did my very best to “do it all” for many years, by which I really mean “do everything I thought everyone else expected me to do.” “Doing it all” encompassed two babies, a husband and a busy law practice. And, like many moms, I realized I couldn’t actually do it all very well. Something had to give. So I identified the thing that meant the least to me but took the most of me, and left my law career. Then I took a leap of faith (and a pay cut!) and went back to school to study natural food, which I was starting to get pretty passionate about.
During that crazy stage of babies and partnership and clients, I started thinking critically about what I was feeding my family. I knew there was plenty of room for improvement, but I also knew I couldn’t realistically handle more than one change at a time, given our busy lives. So that’s how I did it — one change at a time. Once I had a handle on a new habit, I would start working on another change.
My one-step-at-a-time approach works, whether you need to make changes or your whole family does. I’m convinced it’s the only way to make permanent, positive change happen.
You can do it, and I can help you!
“I feel as though I have been looking for someone like Wendy for most of my adult life. When I first met Wendy it was for a private consultation for myself to try and uncover the mystery of my metabolic makeup…. The knowledge that Wendy brings to her practice far surpasses anything I’ve ever read or heard from a doctor or otherwise when it comes to nutrition. Wendy’s depth of understanding allows her to explain on a very basic level which foods feed the mind and body in order to optimize wellness. It’s as though Wendy has lifted the veil that’s been clouding my vision when it comes to nutrition and health. Since meeting Wendy I have invited her in to my home to share her wisdom with my friends, and I have also attended a cooking demonstration. Wendy continues to add new nuggets of helpful information that enable me to make incredibly smart choices not only for myself but also for my husband and children. I will continue to work with Wendy and I recommend her highly.”
