About us.

Our Story

Welcome to our kitchen.

ENK is the story of a Functional Nutritionist – Margaret – and a Whole Foods Chef – James – who combined forces to demystify and revolutionize your relationship with food, health and nourishment. (Oh, and we fell in love too.)

We’re parents. We believe in the body’s profound capacity for healing. And we’ve made it our mission to heal the world through food, one kitchen at a time.

Alongside our team of skilled and compassionate clinicians, we provide science-based nutrition, personalized healing strategies, and game-changing food skills that will change your life.

Dig in.

With love, from our kitchen to yours.

Meet the team.

Here at ENK, we each bring our own special sauce. We know that your healing journey is an incredibly personal process, because we’ve all been there ourselves. Our stories, knowledge and expertise inform our fully customized, deeply supportive offerings for our clients and the ENK community. Allow us to introduce ourselves! Read on, to learn more about what we each bring to this work, and how we got here.    

Margaret Floyd Barry

Margaret Floyd Barry

Functional Nutritionist, Author & ENK Founder

I had my first experience with the power of food in my mid-20s when a change to my diet resolved the raging eczema I’d struggled with for years. Since then I’ve fixed my long-term digestive issues, transformed crippling periods into non-events, reversed my auto-immune disease, and brought my migraines from weekly nightmares to the rare and infrequent blips. All through food and natural strategies. Since 2008 I’ve been working with clients all over the world to transform their health – and thus their lives – through diet. Read more. . .

James Barry

Chef & Consultant

When I was 13 years old, I made dinner for my parents for the first time. It was a tostada salad. But what I remember most is the feeling as they sat down and dug into that meal. I felt so much LOVE: love for my parents, the love that inspired me to cook for them, and the love they experienced as they enjoyed my dinner. The joy I felt was so palpable. Since then, I’ve private cheffed for some of the biggest names in Hollywood, authored two cookbooks and founded a functional food company.

I really don’t know how to properly express the difference working with Margaret has made in my life and in family’s life. If you’re considering working with her, I say 120% – do it! You will see results.

My transformation is not just physical, it’s everything. Having a healthy body is not just about a diet. It’s a holistic process, a lifestyle. If you want that, start a conversation. It will change your life.
