Lauren Adler Dear, MS, RDN

Owner

 

Lauren's passion for nutrition grew out of a love for cooking and growing food. She was brought up in a food-obsessed Jewish household where the freezer was always so full you had to stand back before opening it. During her college years, Lauren spent five months traveling and working on farms in a variety of jobs. 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. These experiences shaped Lauren's approach to nutrition counseling. Her own GI diagnosis inspired her to specialize in digestive health.

 

In Lauren's free time, she can be found experimenting in the kitchen, taking walks around Boston, collecting vintage kitchenware, and most of all, laughing, playing, and eating with her husband and kids.

Ally Klann, MS, MPH, RDN

Ally is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist whose love for food began in her grandmother’s kitchen, where she experienced the joy of baking Italian desserts and cooking big dishes of spaghetti and meatballs.

 

After years of studying medical science and completing public health coursework, Ally’s interest in food and nutrition has continued to grow as she works to help others move towards a healthier life. Her approach to nutrition counseling is centered around the principles of Health at Every Size and Intuitive Eating. By challenging “diet culture” and embracing flexibility, she guides her clients toward cultivating a guilt-free relationship with food and with their bodies.

 

Ally completed her internship training at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, where she studied with Lauren Adler Dear and others. She has also been able to utilize her own personal experience with IBS and GI disorders to work more effectively with clients who have similar diagnoses.

 

Ally has continued to develop her skills while working for Monte Nido at the Eating Disorder Center of Boston as its primary dietitian, providing meal support and nutrition counseling for individuals and groups.

 

In Ally’s free time, she enjoys spending time biking around Boston, hiking, camping, trying new restaurants in the city, and traveling to new places.
