I founded Laura's Natural Kitchen, a natural foods culinary school, to help people seek healthy transformations through diet and improve their health. 

I have helped hundreds of clients learn how to select healthy foods and cook them in ways that are simple and quick enough to fit into their lives. Because I am a Whole Foods Chef as well as a Nutritionist, I can personalize recipes to fit your needs as well as teach you simple cooking strategies to maximize the nutrient density of your foods.

There is new evidence every day that eating whole, unprocessed foods can make a real difference in reducing the risk of chronic illnesses like diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as well as maintaining general health and wellness. My approach combines cutting-edge science with natural approaches to food.  

My years of study and teaching have shown me that a diet of real vegetables, fruits, legumes, grains, nuts and seeds are imperative to help your body heal. There is no greater gift that we can give our families and ourselves than the knowledge of how to have the best health possible.
