Nutrition counseling

Let’s meet to discuss how I can empower you to elevate your relationship with food

 Consulting

I am available for speaking engagements, wellness demonstrations, and project consulting

A resource you can trust.

Nutrition Elevated is your place for reputable, evidenced-based nutrition education. I share recommended resources for the body and mind, daily inspiration, community support, and clarity about the latest nutrition fads.

Education, Elevated.

Eating behaviors are complex, and providing dietary recommendations is only a small facet of nutrition education. My goal is to teach you about the next wave of nutrition research – the concepts related to nutrition that are covered far less by the media than the latest diet fads or cleanses.

An Anti-Diet Approach.

I promote Health at Every Size, in which we celebrate body diversity, honor internal hunger cues, and forgive ourselves when our eating behaviors don’t match our expectations. I hope to help you reach your highest potential through a combination of evidenced-based nutrition education and goal setting.

And most of all, I welcome you to a community of ALL people, shapes, and sizes.

"Lauren's energy got me fueled for graduate school before it even started. I remember being super nervous before meeting her in-person. That went away almost immediately. She was so warm, kind, empathetic - and above all else - authentic. She's the kind of person that everyone respects but can approach."

"Lauren's presentation was professional, enthusiastic, and filled with key insightful information. Our athletes were fully engaged and participated in the discussion regarding nutrition and their athletics. I had several parents email me as well with how impressed they were with her lectures. They are looking forward to trying the recipes she left with them. Thank you!!!"

"Not only was Lauren incredibly open and friendly via email, but she graciously offered to meet with me in person, and helped me wade through the at times daunting process of applying to graduate school as a career-changer. Now, nearly 2 years later, I am halfway through my own coordinated program, and I still remember Lauren's warmth and positive energy - I am so appreciative of her mentorship."

"I really appreciated when Lauren took the time to meet with me when I was visiting the University of Washington Nutritional Sciences program. She was incredibly generous with her time and spirit, especially since she agreed to meet with me while she was studying for finals! She was very open and authentic in answering all of my questions and sharing more in-depth about her own experience. Lauren is incredibly warm, thoughtful, and easy to speak with. During our conversation, she was very supportive and empathetic of my concerns about coming from an alternative (non-nutrition) background, and I left feeling extra inspired to pursue my goals."

Lauren Rice, MPH, RDN, CD: Registered Dietitian & #ladyboss

I fiercely believe in designing a life that brings you immeasurable joy. In 2015, I took a leap of faith – leaving a comfortable life in Washington D.C. – to change careers and become a nutrition expert. I am a nationally accredited Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, and I received my graduate degree (MPH) in nutritional sciences from the University of Washington.

I now work as a clinical dietitian in the hospital and private practice settings, specializing in providing eating disorder, disordered eating, and wellness nutrition counseling to young and adult women and men.

In my spare time, I live for hot lattes, the outdoors, and exploring the Pacific Northwest. I’m also a certified spinning instructor, runner, and homemade donut fanatic. I’m a lucky gal to call the beautiful city of Seattle, WA home
