Frequently Asked Questions


Why did you start Laura's Eats?

I started this blog as a place to put my own recipes for reference as I began to need to navigate a new way of eating. It was easier to have all my recipes in one place than scattered on pieces of paper around the apartment. :)

Where did you learn to cook?

You can thank Shirley (my mom) for my skills. When I was a little girl she cooked 3 meals a day for a family of six. It was to be expected that she'd pull at least one of us in the kitchen to help. Back then it was a pain in the butt but now, I'm so grateful for it.

Why are your recipes gluten-free & dairy-free?

I recently found out that my body can not tolerate gluten or dairy. So feel free to add it in if you're able to digest it but, for me, it's a no-go!

Do you ever eat gluten or dairy?

Yes. I'm an advocate for intuitive eating. I am 100% aware that my body does not love gluten or dairy. And, in that same breath, life happens. Like the time I was greeted with cake & ice cream as I walked in the door to meet my boyfriends family. Or when I truly just want a cheeseburger. But more times than not, I keep the gluten & dairy to a minimum & only in absolutely worth it moments.

Where do you get your inspiration?

I'm a foodie at heart. It doesn't take much to spark a fire with me. But, most of my inspiration comes from meals I've enjoy throughout my life up until my dietary needs changed. So I just remix my favorites into meals I can eat!

Can I post your recipe on my site?

I love sharing my recipes. If you enjoyed one of my recipes and would like to share it on your blog, please just place credit back to me.

Didn't you used to have a podcast?

Yep, I sure did. But I'm not currently focusing on that right now. If you'd like to listen to past episodes you can do so here.

Can I get your recipes emailed to me?
