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 Rice: owner and #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 completely change careers and become an expert in the field of nutrition. Currently, I am a Graduate Student and Dietetic Intern at the University of Washington, and a Nutrition Fellow in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Adolescent Medicine at Seattle Children's Hospital.

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!

What others are saying

"I happened to stumble across Lauren’s blog while researching UW’s MPH/RD program, and I am so thankful I did! We have similar paths (5 years post-college career-changers!) and it was great to get her insight and experience with the entire process leading up to applying. Thanks to her blog, I believe I have a much better understanding of what to expect if I get into an MPH/RD program."

"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'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!!!

"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."
