Here is Lauren’s bio, courtesy of

Lauren Elbe is a personal trainer and the creator of the Nuez Beverage Co. a Vancouver based brand that makes organic, fresh made, preservative free almond and hazelnut milks. After her first bite of a European tomato, Lauren began to question why conventional grocery store food was so lacklustre. Lauren has studied holistic nutrition and has become passionate about local food and what “good” food means for flavour, our health, our communities and the environment. “I dream of a world where food can just be food. Where I don’t need to analyze the ingredients list of a product to try to decipher if there are ingredients that aren’t going to serve me, a world where food is made in kitchens and not laboratories.”

Food Talks is an evening of expert speakers from the Vancouver Food community.
