Laura is an avid cook, enthusiastic eater and overall wellness devotee. She cooks healthy meals every day of the week for herself, her family and her friends. Out of the kitchen, you’re apt to see her running through Prospect Park in Brooklyn or sweating it out at the gym. She loves exercise in all its forms.
Laura earned her Masters from Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy and spent ten months training at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center before becoming a registered dietitian nutritionist. She launched What We Eat in 2013 after working as an outpatient dietitian at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, MA.
Laura’s personal approach to health and nutrition works for her, but, as a chef and nutritionist, she knows her goals won’t necessarily work for her clients. Each person has a unique relationship with food, different things they like to eat, different “starting points.” What everyone does share is that they can eat better. Laura’s passion is in helping her clients discover how to do just that.
Favorite foods to cook: VEGETABLES – raw, roasted, braised, you name it. Salads are her specialty. She can make the most reluctant veggie eater a believer.
Last meal: Homemade pizza with roasted mushrooms and fontina or prosciutto and arugula and a never-ending bowl of one of her seasonal salads.
