Meet Heather

Heather Lasco, Registered Dietitian Atlanta

Hi!  My name is Heather Lasco.  I am a Registered Dietitian located in the Atlanta area.  I am originally from Northeastern Pennsylvania, but I moved to the Atlanta area to earn my Bachelor of Science in Dietetics 6 years ago.  After finishing my undergraduate degree I completed my dietetic internship with Life University.  Currently I am furthering my education at the University of Alabama to receive a Master of Science in Human Nutrition.  

My nutrition philosophy is to make optimal health attainable and practical so that people can feel better about themselves.  I use an anti-fad diet approach to nutrition and help people create life-long lifestyle habits.  I do not label food as “good” or “bad”.  I do not promote restrictive eating.  Instead my approach to nutrition focuses on enjoying life to its fullest while maintaining a balanced lifestyle.  

I am passionate about helping people make sense of food and nutrition, so they can live happy and healthy lives.  I provide people with practical nutrition solutions by sharing tasty recipes and providing nutrition coaching services.  While this is a food blog that does not mean I am a chef by trade.  Therefore I share feasible recipes that anyone can make!
