Review quote

Laura is a passionate and intelligent voice of new thinking, a fire starter of the revolution in how we think about food, eating and our bodies. -- Brigid Moss, Contributing Editor, Red Laura is one of the most important voices in food today. She has a rare combination of impeccable academic credentials, clinical experience and a nose for the profound social justice issues at the heart of nutrition science. -- Anthony Warner - The Angry Chef Laura's work is game-changing. I don't know anyone else with her level of expertise who manages to educate others in such an accessible and deeply personal way. She really is blazing the trail in the new nutrition conversation. -- Megan Jayne Crabbe (BodyPosiPanda) author of Body Positive Power Laura is the clear voice of reason in the world of nutrition and health, as she cuts through a lot of the confusion with hard facts and relatable, funny context. -- Poorna Bell, Journalist for the Guardian, Red, The Pool and former Executive Editor of HuffpostUK
