Nutritionist and former chef Emma Ellice-Flint is passionate about making a difference to people’s lives through nutrition and natural medicine. She founded her practice ‘Eatcetera Nutrition’ with the aim of giving patients the knowledge they need to create healthy lives for themselves and their families.
Emma welcomes and treats patients with all conditions but digestive wellness and hormone balance are topics close to her heart. So much so that she wrote two evidenced-based cookbooks about female hormone balance called The Happy Hormone Cookbook and gut healing called The Bone Broth Bible.
She brings together years of clinical experience, evidence-based nutritional advice, a wealth of knowledge about food and the excitement that goes with that understanding.
Emma originally trained in hospitality at Ealing College, part of the University of West London. The most enjoyable component of the three-year course was always the food classes. Once qualified, she worked in marketing for international hotels in London. Emma’s passion was always food – eventually she took off the business suit and put on her chef’s whites. In London, she cooked on myriad events, large and small, such as cooking for the Queen and at the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament.
Arriving in Sydney, Australia in the 1990s she cooked for a varied audience including politicians, royalty and celebrities. Her keen interest in health saw her combine healthy, wholesome food into the style of cooking she produced, taking advantage of the beautiful and abundant produce of Australia.
In 2007 she decided to make that interest in nutrition her full-time profession, hanging up the chef ’s whites and undertaking full-time study, qualifying with Bachelor of Health Science (Nutrition). Emma regularly attends ongoing professional education, keeping up to date in the ever-changing field of nutrition, and apart from clinic work, runs nutrition cooking workshops across Australia and the UK.
