We have all felt grasped by food at some point in our lives. For some that grasp is mild, causally craving certain pleasure foods once in a while, but for others food can take control over ones life. Food addiction comes in a variety of forms from people over eating indulgent and unhealthy foods, to others obsessing over calories and the nutritional quality of food to the point where food becomes the center of ones existence.
Laura Dawn is a holistic nutritionist, avid gardener, spiritual practitioner, author of “Unhooked: A Holistic Approach to Ending Your Struggle with Food” and “Mindful Eating for Dummies”, and founder of HappyAndRaw.com.
Laura’s journey began similar to mine by rejecting the societal pressure of getting a mindless job for the purpose of making money. Laura traveled the world exploring different communities connection to spirituality and food. This exploration led her to study nutrition at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition which provided her the credentials to study under teachers including Gabriel Cousens and Dr. Douglas Graham.
Laura currently lives on a 10 acre fruit and vegetable farm on the Big Island of Hawaii where she grows food in nutrient dense soils and also host retreats.
Laura’s next retreat is called Live Pure Live Free: A Raw Food & Self Empowerment Hawaii Retreat with Live Pure Jenna (March 19-26) on the Big Island of Hawaii.
