Lila Volkas is a Certified Nutrition Consultant and workshop facilitator based in Berkeley, California. Lila brings joy and connection to employees around food and nutrition through her Corporate Team-Building Workshops. She makes nutrition and culinary information easy to understand and fun to learn through her food writing, illustration, and one-on-one consulting.

Lila has been hosting food events and classes for almost a decade with thousands of participants all around the world. She works with companies like Google, Microsoft, and Amazon to bring team-bonding and wellness into the workplace. These sessions are not your average mixology classes, Lila brings a unique Do It Yourself and “healthy-ish” spin to your favorite cocktails and treats.

Lila found her way to holistic nutrition after a six-year healing journey from chronic skin and digestive issues. She has come to recognize the onset of these health challenges as a blessing in disguise. They led Lila to her dream job of helping others find connection, joy, and healing through food.

Last, but not least - it’s not all about kale and quinoa! Lila believes in balance and enjoying the sweet things in life. She empowers her clients and workshop participants to make educated decisions about their health while also keeping it real.
