I’m a huge believer in the power of food.”

Registered dietitian, Amy Anderson, is a huge believer in the power of food. From fuel and performance to comfort and joy, she thinks food is a connection point that truly brings people together, while also strengthening the body, just like in Chef Jeramie’s story.

Her passion and enthusiasm for nutrition allow her to bridge the gap between science and experience. She’s always ready to share the science behind nutrition in an engaging and digestible way that focuses on encouragement without the confusion of many fad diets and pseudo-science myths.

Her goal at LifeWorks is to teach others that healthy eating and physical activity don’t have to be a hassle—they can be simple, exciting and delicious.

Less work.
