Certified by the International Food and Nutrition Coaching Institute of Australia, Lisa Saunders is the founder and driving force behind Nourished U. She holds a Diploma of Food and Nutrition Coaching and a Diabetes 2 Nutritional Advisor certification. Always keen to further her food and nutrition knowledge, Lisa is currently undertaking certifications in Gut Health Management and Low Toxin Living.
Lisa specialises in coaching clients who want to better manage conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, coeliac disease and irritable bowel syndrome – with expert knowledge in meat free, dairy free, gluten free and vegetarian/vegan diets. A passionate, family focused woman, over the years Lisa has studied extensively, climbed the corporate ladder and experienced the challenges and demands of being a working parent.
After encountering her own health issues and finding relief through better nutrition, Lisa believes everyone has the right to know what food can do for their bodies, and for their health. Lisa started Nourished U as an avenue to educate, inform and guide clients through the process of incorporating the ‘Food is Medicine’ approach seamlessly into their lives. From busy office workers with a bloating issue they’ve been ignoring for months, to time poor parents with teenagers who have suddenly gone potato chip vegan, Nourished U caters to people from all over the health and wellness spectrum. Based in Melbourne, Lisa is working with individuals and groups through workshops, one on one coaching and other supportive services.
