Amanda B. Figge, MS, RD, LDN
As a dietitian, it is my role to help people use food as their medicine to improve health. Too often we rely on prescriptions to treat our blood sugars, cholesterol or GI distress when sometimes all we need are improved eating habits. To be in our best health, we need to treat our bodies as nature intended it. I emphasize the use of whole foods and proper eating patterns to revive the metabolism and improve health outcomes. The single most important tool you can have for a healthy diet is a kitchen. It is amazing to experience how good the body feels when it is nourished with natural ingredients versus chemicals and preservatives. As a full-time dietitian, wife and mom, I know how hard it is to balance healthy eating and an active lifestyle, but if I can make it work, I know you can too! Whether you have food sensitivities, abnormal lab values or just a busy schedule, we can work together to find a meal plan to help you achieve your best health yet.

Megan A. Klemm, MS, RD, LDN, CDE
I’m Megan Klemm, MS, RD, LDN, CDE; a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator with Springfield Clinic. I work part time for Springfield Clinic in Lincoln and Decatur and spend the rest of my time as a busy mom of three children. I’m married to a 6th-generation farmer; we raise primarily corn, soybeans and Black Angus cattle. I have earned the credentials of certified diabetes educator, certified insulin pump trainer and a certificate of training in adult weight management. Diabetes and weight management are my two areas of expertise and passion, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have the experience and knowledge to help with other nutrition questions, concerns and/or diagnoses.
The field of nutrition is such an amazing field to be in, as there is so much you can do food- and beverage-wise to better your health. I look forward to helping you and your family gain more knowledge and skills to better your health.
