About me

Hi, I’m Dr Sue Shepherd. I’m an Advanced Accredited Practising Dietitian and Advanced Accredited Nutritionist. I graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Health Promotion and post graduate Masters in Nutrition and Dietetics, then went on to complete my PhD in 2008. I specialise in the treatment of dietary intolerances and have coeliac disease myself.

I have been recognised internationally as a leading expert dietitian in the area of coeliac disease and irritable bowel syndrome. I’m a Senior Lecturer for La Trobe University Department of Dietetics and Human Nutrition and have worked as a clinical investigator in numerous research studies.

But my passion for promoting good nutrition extends beyond the research field – I have also written thirteen cookbooks! Fuelled by my absolute belief that a dietary condition is an invitation rather than an obstacle to good eating, my collection of recipes proves that having a dietary condition, such as gluten, FODMAP or lactose intolerance, coeliac disease or irritable bowel syndrome does not mean having to miss out on the delights and adventures of a good food life.

I am pleased to be a Vitasoy ambassador as the entire Vitasoy soymilk range is made from whole soybeans. I’m sure you will enjoy the superior quality and taste of Vitasoy. In particular, I love the gluten free Soy Milky range – I use it as my everyday milk at home and especially love it in a cup of tea!

My favourite recipes

Thai Chicken Pie with Rice Crust
