ROSIE SAUNT @ROSIE_SAUNT
Having previously worked in the fashion industry, my Vogue magazines have been replaced with science journals since taking a career change to become a Dietitian.
I’ve now graduated with an internationally renowned degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from King’s College London after four years of rigorous studying. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. I now have my dream job working in a busy London hospital and I love the combination of this clinical role, with a more mainstream nutrition work-life outside.
In my spare time I’ve: blogged at rosie-saunt.com, written for publications such as the Sunday Times and Telegraph and have run a successful supper club in my London home. In a period where there’s a growing amount of conflicting and misleading health advice, it’s my mission to translate evidenced-based science to your plate.
I’m passionate about those with robust qualifications showing their face and sharing their knowledge, instead of hiding in labs or behind hospital walls. The idea for The Rooted Project was born last year over a mind-blowingly spicy Thai curry and I couldn’t be more excited to be launching it now.

I graduated as a Registered Dietitian in 2009. Since then I’ve been on a mission to cut through the untruths and nonsense in the world of nutrition, in the hope of making healthy eating fun and more accessible.
As an RD, I have over 7 years clinical nutrition experience. I have worked both in the National Health Service and as a freelance dietitian, specialising in the gut and a whole diet approach to health. In my spare time I parent a pint-sized dictator and run the nutrition blog, Food & Nonsense, where I debunk nutrition related myths and have the occasional food-related rant.
The Rooted Project has been a passion project of ours for a while now. There is so much misinformation out there in the world of nutrition, it can be both overwhelming and disempowering to people trying to take ownership of their bodies and control over their health. We want to counter this with good information, backed by science, brought to you in an easy to understand way. It’s all about putting the power back in your hands and I’m so excited we are finally sharing this with you!
