About Cheryl

Sweet Spot Nutrition founder Cheryl Strachan knows that to achieve heart health for life, you need to find that “sweet spot”: food that’s healthy, tasty, and right for you.

As a Registered Dietitian, Nutritionist, cardiac specialist, and author of the 30-Minute Heart Healthy Cookbook, Cheryl loves to banish food stress and help people with heart concerns get comfortable in the kitchen again. 

The Sweet Spot Promise


Sustainable cardiac nutrition is more than just eating right – it’s about finding that Sweet Spot that allows you to build nutrition habits that work, that last, and that leave you feeling satisfied. 

I make the following commitments to each and every client I work with:

  1. I commit to helping you fall back in love with food again so that eating becomes less stressful and more enjoyable.
  2. I commit to helping you find your Sweet Spot and discover food that tastes good, that’s good for you, and that works for your life.
  3. I commit to helping you find success in the long term by building habits that aren’t just healthy but sustainable. 
  4. I commit to doing all of the above through thoughtful, inclusive practices, free of shame or judgment.

I believe that well-being is holistic, incorporating both the physical and emotional aspects of health.


I believe that cardioprotective nutrition has to be more than just heart-healthy – it must connect people with satisfying food that works in real life.


I believe that all healthcare – including those in nutrition services – must be welcoming, caring, and respectful of all. 


I believe in providing cardiac nutritional care that is honest, evidence-based, and rooted firmly in a foundation of integrity. 

Cheryl takes an evidence-based, practical and delicious approach to heart-healthy eating, and follows Health at Any Size® principles. Highly recommend.
