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 all of my career, I’ve spent the last few years working my way through a Bachelor of Health Science in Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine and am now a fully qualified Nutritionist BHSc (Nut Med)!! Spending time studying was really important to me making a transition of careers and to be able to call myself a Nutritionist, I really believe that a thorough education is so important to practice effectively in this field. I also became a qualified personal trainer around five years ago and I’m still a part-timer in the corporate world.
I love how nutrition can 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 out of action for a while with a couple of broken neck bones and as you can imagine my life changed in lots of ways from then on. My work/play/exercise hard lifestyle was out the window and my body had to go through a long healing process, not only physically but mentally too and this experience has really taught me the value of health. There are so many incredible healing benefits to food and through my nutrition studies, I really hope to be able to help others to meet their health goals and show you how the right nutrition can have such a positive impact upon your health.
My website is here to help you learn about how food is one of the best tools you can use for maximum health. You might notice that my recipes are mostly plant-based and that’s because it’s how I eat at home. I find it a really healthy, easy way to cook and whole foods just work really well for me. My recipes have been designed with nutrition at the heart of their planning and aim to give you optimum nutrition for meals, snacks and drinks.
I really enjoy helping people make healthier food choices and I’m not perfect, I still love a glass of wine and a bowl of chips, but I also eat as many fruits and veggies as I can. Eating well just makes me feel good and hopefully, I can help you to feel good too. I’m here to help you incorporate more of the good stuff into your day to day life, by making 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 and stress can all take their toll on our bodies and that we really need to look after health.
Healthy eating doesn’t really mean you have to give up the foods you love. What it means is that you get to add in foods that really make you feel good as well. I really hope you enjoy exploring my website and if there is anything you’d like to know more about, I’d love to hear from you (you can send me a message here).
