About Wendy Jo

I am Wendy Jo Peterson, The Fuelin’ Roadie and owner of Edible Nutrition.  I am a sports dietitian, culinary nutritionist, international speaker and author.

My passion and expertise begin with my client’s palate, and their taste for nutrition & wellness.

I split my practice between working with artists in my home state of Texas (Fuelin’ Roadie), speaking on the road (Edible Nutrition), and enjoying my garden and family in San Diego, California .

I have over 10 years of experience working with clients – helping them achieve their optimal wellness while meeting their nutrition goals. As a former culinary arts teacher, swim coach, and lover of music, I utilize a unique approach to enhancing the health of every client and tapping into their edible nutrition!

I am also a nutritional speaker and member of the prestigious National Speakers Association.  You can catch me around the country speaking about trendy culinary & nutrition topics, with a strong focus on fueling our military & families. I am a frequent contributor for the Musicfest Magazine and Austin Lifestyles Magazine.  In addition to speaking and writing, I work as a spokesperson for companies that focus on getting a positive nutrition message out through food using television and social media.

In 2011, I published my first book, The Mediterranean Diet Cookbook for Dummies and next up my 2nd book, Adrenal Fatigue For Dummies is due out February 2014.
