Phara Taylor, MS, RD, LDN


As a Registered Dietitian with over 10 years of clinical experience in chronic disease management, I offer a non-diet approach to help clients make lifestyle modifications to effect real positive and lasting change. My belief is healthy eating does not have to be complicated. With that, I hope to empower you to reach for lifelong energy, nutrition and health.

I hold a Masters in Nutrition and Health Promotion from Simmons College and a Certificate in Sports Nutrition.

My thesis on Trans Fat Knowledge was published in Topics in Clinical Nutrition. I also completed my didactic training in 2009 at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.

I offer personal nutrition coaching and provide medical nutrition therapy to treat patients with the following conditions: Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease, Eating Disorder, Gut health, Autoimmune disorders, Weight Management, Malnutrition, and Tube feeding.

My Journey

My journey to health and nutrition was by accident actually.  I had never heard about nutrition as a profession. Fortunately, after graduating college with a cartography degree, I went to Paris to study abroad and was immersed in a new culture where healthy eating was abundant.

Around that time, my father was diagnosed with congestive heart failure from years of poorly controlled high blood pressure.  He had shortness of breath most time and fatigued really easily.

I became convinced that the S.A.D American diet was the cause of my dad’s failing health.  I hope to use my experience to help others discover a healthier way to eat for abundant health.

Fun Facts About Me

Healthy nutrition and clean eating is my passion.

I get really excited when I see pictures of mouth-watering recipes on the cover of Eating Well or Cooking Light Magazine.

My favorite food is Avocado.

Can you imagine all the different foods you can pair with an avocado? It’s my secret ingredient to satisfying hunger.

I have four wonderful children who keep me busy. I get to use all of my skills as a nurturer, a mentor, a cook, a chauffeur, and a disciplinarian.

My husband and I first met in Paris and got married in Kauai, Hawaii on Shipwreck Beach.

My hobbies include yoga, quilting, sewing, reading, and Yiruma Radio.

I am a lover of classical music, especially the ones that elevate the consciousness to get stuff done.
