About Lauren Adler Dear, MS, RDN
Lauren is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with a private practice in Boston, Massachusetts.
She has been passionate about food for as long as she can remember. Lauren grew up in a food-obsessed Jewish household where the freezer was always so full you had to stand back before opening it. Her passion for nutrition grew out of a love for cooking and growing food. Back in college she went abroad to Australia and spent five months traveling and working on farms. After graduating in 2005 she worked on two organic farms in western Massachusetts and also taught gardening, nutrition, and cooking to elementary and middle school children. She brings this experience with her to her nutrition counseling approach – She loves to share her enthusiasm for growing and preparing food. Her own GI diagnosis has inspired her to specialize in digestive health and she looks forward to sharing her knowledge with you.
In Lauren's free time she can be found experimenting in the kitchen, laughing with her husband and daughter, walking around Boston, collecting vintage kitchen-ware, and of course eating with her family.
