Hey, there.

I’m Kara. A registered dietitian nutritionist and yoga teacher who believes that the secret to a holistically happy life is nourishing your body, mind, and spirit.

I believe…

  • you nourish your body through delicious, whole foods
  • you nourish your mind through thoughtful movement and meditation
  • you nourish your spirit through mindful living

Let me help you feel nourished. I’d love to work with you if you’re ready to:

  • Ditch the diets
  • Eat more, not less
  • Make sustainable changes
  • See long-lasting results
  • Feel great and have more energy
  • Find your natural weight
  • Be more mindful
  • Feel holistically happyYoga-Kara-Lydon-4

As the former nutritionist at The Weight and Wellness Center at Tufts Medical Center, I helped my clients make realistic changes to their lifestyle to get them feeling their best.

I take a holistic approach to coaching, meaning that we focus on body, mind, and spirit, not numbers and calorie counts. I tailor our sessions according to your individual goals and objectives so you won’t find a one-size-fits-all approach here.

You WILL find an approach and plan that works especially for YOU and YOUR needs.

I started this practice because I know first-hand what it’s like to feel awkward and stuck in the kitchen, to obsess over calories, to rush through meals to get on with a busy life, to put too much pressure on yourself to feel perfect. This, my friends, is no way to live. By taking the time and effort to invest in working on “me”, I was able to overcome all of my obstacles and barriers. Today, I am more empowered than ever and am passionate about sharing the love I hold for food and mindful living with everyone I meet. Nothing makes me happier than picking up fresh produce from the farmer’s market, being in a downward facing dog, or taking a big ol’ bite out of a red velvet cupcake. That pure joy I experience around food and for myself, I want the same for you.

As a nationally recognized and award-winning registered dietitian nutritionist, my culinary and nutrition tips have been featured in a number of health and wellness publications and am frequently sought after for my passion, energy and expertise as a speaker.

My blog, the foodie dietitian, is meant to give you the tools and resources you need to live a holistically happy life – delicious, whole food vegetarian recipes, easy ways to incorporate yoga into your daily life, and strategies to live more mindfully.

When I’m not blogging, coaching clients, taking photos of food, or on my yoga mat, you can find me playing with my imperial cat, Constantine (Lil’ C for short), meditating, traveling, trying new restaurants, and dancing and singing around my apartment.
