A little bit more about Lara..
- Over the past 14 years Lara has worked as a Dietitian in Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne across a diverse range of settings – hospital, community and private practice, focussing mostly in the areas of women’s health and children’s nutrition.
- After moving to Melbourne in 2009, she established her private practice, providing consultations, workshops and developing recipes for a number of online women’s health platforms and food businesses. In 2019 she relocated to Adelaide (her hometown), where she now runs her private practice.
- Alongside nutrition work she has also enjoyed involvement in Farmers’ Market Management (both in Adelaide and Melbourne). The benefits of buying and eating fresh local food (wherever possible) are endless – for our community, economy, environment, health and wellbeing.
- As a lover of flowers and nature Lara also occasionally freelances as a florist. This hobby turned into a side business years ago after completing part-time study and work in the industry. Experience with flowers has enriched her knowledge and understanding of the natural world, seasonal change and the many benefits (including health benefits) of working with and being surrounded by nature. She now incorporates certain elements of floristry into her nutrition practice, retreats and workshops.

Since working with Lara, my digestive issues have improved considerably and most importantly, my love for cooking and eating wholesome food has been reignited! Lara’s approach is unique in that she provides guidance and the resources to successfully carry out dietary and lifestyle amendments. In particular, her wonderfully wholesome recipes. Lara’s recipes are quick, easy and oh so tasty – I have fallen in love with every single one. I cannot thank you enough, Lara, for all your help so far!” – Jasmine
