About Laura Bruner

I am a Certified Nutrition Consultant and a Certified CrossFit Trainer. I have a passion for educating, and I absolutely love teaching others about nutrition, functional movement, and the power each has to set the foundation for health, wellness, and true quality of life. I LOVE to eat and fuel my body to live life to the utmost, and I wholeheartedly believe that sustainably sourced, nutrient dense foods can be the greatest form of medicine as well as the ingredients to create the most delicious, palate pleasing meals (it’s a win-win!)

COOKIES! Who doesn't love a good cookie? Especially when it's got ooey gooey chocolate chips and the goddess of all nuts - the macadamia.

Snacking: the topic brings up some deeply rooted emotions and opinions in people. Here's mine summed up into one simple concept. I think it's best to eat 4 meals a day made up of a balanced ration of deeply nourishing protein, carbs, and fat. Here's the reality: life gets crazy, and snacking is often times unavoidable [...]

Considering I'm just 8(ish) weeks out from being a mom (woah), I'm starting to wrap my mind around the craziness that will ensure, especially in the first few weeks of breastfeeding, changing diapers, holding baby girl, and likely sleeping very little. Somewhere in there, it will be imperative that I eat. You know, food is fuel [...]
