“In the nutrition world, it is becoming more and more apparent that we do, in fact, have a say in how our health turns out,” says Amy Symington. “Sound nutrition, which includes whole, plant-based foods, is more important than is sometimes credited by your average healthcare institution. Supplying the general population with the practical tools to steer themselves and their loved ones toward optimal health is what I strive for every day of my wonderful existence. My aim is to inspire.”

Amy is a passionate plant-based chef, nutritionist, professor, researcher, blogger and cookbook author. She is also Nutrition and Kitchen program coordinator at Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto. She has developed recipes for various publications including the Toronto Vegetarian Association and Clean Eating Magazine.

Amy’s new book Long Table Meals: A Community Focused, Culinary Nutrition Guide to Optimal Health is a cookbook and nutrition guide for chronic disease prevention and management.

Amy lives in Toronto.
