Well the name might be a bit of a giveaway, but yes, I am Amy Savage, qualified Nutritionist BHSc. Originally from the UK, I first arrived in Australia in 2003. I basically fell in love with Sydney (who doesn’t!) and it’s pretty much been my home ever since.
Fast forward a few years and after working in the corporate world of recruitment for the past 15 years, in 2015 I embarked upon studying a Bachelor of Health Science in Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine and I’m now a qualified Nutritionist BHSc (Nutritional Medicine) and now juggle both the corporate life with nutrition.
I love how nutrition has the power to change your health and I first became fascinated by it when I began exploring how diet affects your body through my own personal experiences (think major motor accident injuries, scary amounts of medications playing havoc with my gut health and separately to that, persistent adult acne post long term use of the OCP!). I have seen first hand how diet and lifestyle can impact you both positively and negatively and it’s so important to be aware that our health is impacted by our food choices, alcohol, use of recreational drugs and overuse of medications.
My website is here to help you learn about how food is one of the best tools you can use to maximise your health. My recipes are designed to be easy and typically include lots of plant-based whole foods. They are created with nutrition at the heart of their planning and using whole foods, aiming to give you optimum nutrition for meals, snacks and drinks.
Eating well makes me feel good and has transformed my health and I’m here to help you feel good too. I’m here to help you incorporate more of the good stuff into your day to day life and my goal is to make it as easy and accessible for as many people as possible.
If healthy eating is new to you or you want to gain a better understanding of the fundamentals of nutrition, have a read of my ‘Nutrition Basics’ as a good starting point to help you learn about the major nutrients we need. Health is one of the most important things we have in life and so many people are touched by it in different ways. It’s important to understand how diet, medications, stress and lifestyle can all take their toll on our bodies and that we really need to look after health.
Healthy eating doesn’t mean you have to give up the foods you love (I still love wine!). It’s about finding a balance and my Nutrition Consultations are here to help you find that balance with ease through my REST, DIGEST & RESET approach.
