Teresa Cutter, is a classically trained chef, qualified nutritionist and accredited personal trainer, Teresa decided to combine her two great loves – gastronomy and physical fitness. Choosing to share her lifestyle, recipes and wisdom internationally, she inspires over 5 million people per year to make positive changes to their lives through her website.
Teresa is a force to be reckoned with in the culinary world. Commencing her career in hospitality, Teresa trained as a traditional French chef. Her natural talent and passion for food was rewarded early on in her career winning ‘Apprentice of the year’ two years running, followed by a Gold Medal at the Salon Culinaire. It was then that she also received her qualifications as a certified fitness trainer. Juggling five days as a chef, and two days each week fitness training, Teresa recognised the importance of a healthy diet for energy and wellbeing. In 1998, Teresa competed in fitness figure competitions, placing 2nd in Australia. She then traded the gym for the boxing gloves, taking up Muay Thai kickboxing.
She writes healthy recipes each week in her blog thehealthychef.com and has contributed her recipes to New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Huffington Post, Sydney Morning Herald, as well as Women’s Fitness, Men’s Fitness and Australian Doctor. Teresa has had a solid grounding as a TV celebrity chef appearing on live TV and numerous cooking segments including Today Show, A Current Affair and Sunrise.
Pursuing her dream of opening her own restaurant, Teresa opened the wholesome and
organic café on the shores of Avalon in Northern Sydney called ‘The Healthy Chef’. Its
phenomenal success spurred Teresa to reach an even wider audience, and in November 2012, she launched The Healthy Chef Functional Food Range. Free from chemicals, artificial sweeteners and fillers and made from wholefoods, The Healthy Chef WPI and Organic Pea Protein were the first of its kind in Australia. Dedicated to improving people’s health and wellbeing through the food choices they make and how they cook, Teresa believes food, like life, is to be savoured.
