Well the name might be a bit of a giveaway, but yes, I am Amy Savage.. 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 fully fledged and qualified Nutritionist BHSc (Nutritional Medicine)!!
I love how nutrition has the power to change your life and I first became fascinated by it when I began exploring how diet affects your body through my own personal experiences. A few years ago I was involved in a pretty bad motor accident and my life turned upside down. I was off work for months with a couple of broken neck bones and lots of bruises and from then on really, my life has changed in lots of ways. My work hard, play hard, exercise hard lifestyle was gone and my body had to go through a long healing process, not only physically, but mentally. This experience has really taught me the value of health and ultimately is what led me to pursue my dreams of studying nutrition.
My website is here to help you learn about how food is one of the best tools you can use for maximum health. The majority of my recipes are plant-based and that’s because it’s how I mostly eat at home. The majority of us need more plant foods in our life and I find it a really healthy, easy way to cook. My recipes are designed with nutrition at the heart of their planning and using whole foods, aim to give you optimum nutrition for meals, snacks and drinks.
Eating well makes me feel good 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 chips and 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.
