The Connection Between Gut Health and Obesity


Lorene Sauro, RHN, has been a food professional for over 25 years and a holistic nutritionist for 17 years. As a food professional, owning her own bakery, she spent years working with organic farmers to help start a farmer’s market in Toronto, and organizing Feast of Fields, an event to promote organic farmers and raise money and awareness for environmental causes. A health crisis led her to study nutrition and become a holistic nutritionist. She is a teacher at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and is active in the holistic nutrition profession, working with the Canadian Association of Holistic Nutrition Professionals. She is the author of A Pastry Queen Goes Green, a baking book where Lorene has put everything she ever knew about baking into one spot and it includes a holistic nutrition spin. She is also founder of the Healthy Gut Program and the Healthy Hormone program for practitioners and the Simple Fermentation Online Workshop, for consumers.

She currently combines her love of food and her nutrition knowledge to promote sustainable methods for growing and preparing food. As a writer and speaker, Lorene loves to communicate, through her website, programs and events, the information that consumers and practitioners need to help them get more from their food and enjoy their life.
