The Nutritionist Duo Making Healthy, Home-Cooked Meals Feel Easy

You don’t need to be a good cook to follow their advice.

Thrive Global and The Quaker Oats Company present The Fuel List—20 people changing the way we fuel our minds and bodies every day. These are the leaders making an impact in the worlds of sleep, nutrition, movement and mindfulness right now.

Wendy Lopez and Jessica Jones are the women behind Food Heaven Made Easy, a platform driven by the idea that you don’t need unlimited time or resources—or even well-honed cooking skills—to make healthy meals. Both Lopez and Jones are registered dietitians with master’s degrees in nutrition, and their background informs their recipes—they’re health-focused but simple enough that any home cook can handle them. Their site is like a one-stop shop for information on how to eat (and feel) better, with videos, podcasts, articles and nutritional counseling to help people everywhere improve their well-being through the foods they eat. The duo also wrote a cookbook—The 28 Day Plant-Powered Health Reboot— that makes plant-based cooking easy. 

“I was raised by a mother who truly believed that something terrible would happen to her children—and her grandchildren and her friends—if they went 20 minutes without eating. She would have loved Food Heaven Made Easy. Because as Lopez and Jones know, food and cooking are about so much more than just eating—they’re about bringing people together and sharing what we love. Together, they’re showcasing the power of partnership as they create a (delicious) hub for conversations about simple, nutritious meals that can help us all be healthier and more fulfilled.” — Arianna Huffington, Thrive Global Founder and CEO
