I’m Skye, a dietitian and nutritionist based in Sydney, Australia. I became a dietitian mostly because I just love food (like most dietitians I know!) and I started Shift Nutrition so that I could spread this love and help people to be as happy and healthy as possible.
I also love talking about nutrition, writing about it and educating people about how to eat well. Read more about my philosophy on all things food and nutrition here.
As a dietitian, I’m a scientist at heart, but I’m also passionate about food, cooking and getting creative in the kitchen. I love coming up with new ideas, experimenting with different ingredients and developing recipes that are not only healthy but also look and taste great.
