Her philosophy is to bring us delicious and vegan healthy recipes with a touch of her vibrant personality on the side. Laura began her personal journey into the world of vegetarian cooking when she started working with Marcy Baskin, author of “Hingham Grain and Spice Cookbook.” In New York, Laura counseled with nutritionist and life extension specialist, Oz Garcia. She became intrigued with developing accessible recipes based on a diet that included more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and non-animal proteins.
