My first cookbook, Real Food for Real Families, is now available in its second edition under the new title “No More Junk Food” through local retailers and online through the links below (content & recipes are identical as in first edition). It provides delicious and simple, kid-approved, additive-free alternatives to common processed foods. Here’s the catalogue description if you’re curious:

 80+ quick, easy, and delicious recipes that can replace packaged, processed, and prepared standbys — plus tips to get your family eating more real food every day

Wendy McCallum, a mom with a high pressure job, a husband and two babies, was trying to do it all — including making sure her kids were eating well. When her children turned three she decided to leave her first career behind and focus on learning more about natural food, real food, and how to get all of us eating more of it — starting with her own family.

Four years later, she’s ready to share what’s she’s learned. We can all eat less of the packaged, processed, and prepared food and instead enjoy real food that is quick, easy, and delicious. In this cookbook she offers easy-to- make real food alternatives to the most popular processed foods — from Kraft Dinner to Bear Paws. Every one of her recipes is kid tested and kid approved. The recipes range from Ain’t Jemima Pancake Syrup to Popeye Pesto to Free Range Goldfish and This Chalet Chicken.

Wendy offers ideas on how to take the small steps that can ultimately lead to big changes in how a family eats and feels. Great presentation ideas and appealing photographs of the dishes make this book practical and useful. There’s a wide range of gluten-free, nut-free, and dairy-free dishes for families who have food allergies to consider.

Wendy McCallum is a great guide for parents who want to make a shift from convenient but unhealthy prepared foods to quick-to-prepare real food that everyone will love.

WENDY McCALLUM followed her passion for real food by leaving her first career as a lawyer and going back to college to learn more about nutrition and food. She now operates a business which helps families make a move from popular processed food to making and enjoying real food alternatives. From her test kitchen in Halifax, this book features the most successful and popular recipes that the families she works with make and love — and Wendy’s many hints for how to introduce a family to new approaches to food.
