I am Wendy Jo Peterson, The Roadie Nutritionist – a sports dietitian/nutritionist, chef, author, and lover of all things music.
Through my love of live music, I began to see the similarities between athletes and performers and realized I could help performers understand the role nutrition could take in fueling their performance.
On a regular basis, I see artists being misled and manipulated by people selling “products and supplements” versus providing practical nutritional advice and principles. I believe there is a need for a clear understanding of nutrition for artists and performers, from a sports nutrition approach. In my practice working with musicians, I realize the challenges they face on the road, at home, in the studio and on stage, and am able to help them overcome many of these challenges through nutrition—helping the artist go from good, to great, to ROCK STAR…
I split my practice between working with artists in my home state of Texas and working with other patients, including Olympic Athletes, in San Diego, California.
I am also a nutritional speaker and member of the prestigious National Speakers
Association. I speak at large and small conferences around the country, and can even be swayed into going out on the road and cooking up my favorite road fuel!
In 2011, I published my first book, The Mediterranean Diet Cookbook for Dummies, and in 2014 my next book, Adrenal Fatigue For Dummies will hit the shelves, too.
