Lauren Rice, MPH, RDN, CD

Seattle-based Registered Dietitian

Welcome! I believe strongly that food is nourishing physically, emotionally, and mentally. I help clients gain insight into their own individual relationships and attitudes towards food, eating, and their bodies, and help bring awareness to how these relationships influence eating behaviors.

I have extensive experience and training supporting clients  who  are struggling with disordered eating, eating disorders,  relative energy deficiency syndrome (RED-S), and hypothalamic amenorrhea in the inpatient and outpatient settings. I am also a published author, nutrition faculty member, and public speaker. In my spare time, you can almost always find me in the mountains exploring the PNW.

Specialties include: disordered eating, chronic dieting, intuitive eating, sports  & mountaineering nutrition, relative energy deficiency, female athlete triad, and hypothalamic amenorrhea.

What would it feel like to:

→ discover a way of eating that is sustainable and nourishing

→ gain insight into your unique relationship with food and desired movement

→ understand what your body needs for you to feel your strongest and healthiest self

→ view food as an essential component of helping you fully engage and participate in your LIFE

let's get you there, together.

The Nutrition Elevated Philosophy

“Nutrition Elevated” is an ode to my love of summiting tall peaks and a symbolism of the healing power of nature. Adequate nourishment is fundamental to living a life elevated (literally and figuratively!)

Health messaging in the fitness and nutrition industries can be damaging and harmful to anyone working to heal their relationship with food and their body. I understand that the intersection between the spectrum of disordered eating and movement is complex and requires thoughtful consideration during nutrition counseling sessions.

I also respect that joyful movement is different for every BODY and honor each individual’s relationship to exercise and movement. Whether you’re trying to heal your relationship with food and purposefully not engaging in movement, or you’d like to learn how to prepare for your upcoming summit of Mt. Rainier, I will walk alongside you and support you in every stage of your journey.

" Lauren is incredibly warm, thoughtful, and easy to speak with. She was very open and authentic in answering all of my questions and sharing more in-depth about her own experience. 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 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. "

" I was nervous to begin my ambulatory experience and felt unsure of my skills, but when it came time to step up and put on my "counseling cap", Lauren offered encouragement and made me feel like I could do it.  She made me feel comfortable to mess up, to struggle, knowing that I would learn along that way and that I would have her guidance to do better next time. Since my internship ended, she continues to offer encouragement and an understanding ear. She still embodies the title of an outstanding preceptor, long after being my preceptor. "

" 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 hosted a few nutrition sessions for our girls hockey team, and she was phenomenal. Her presentations are really engaging (whether in person or virtual), and she does a great job of explaining everything so that girls from 10 to 19 can understand. She's always welcome back to speak to our girls! "

" Not only was Lauren incredibly open and friendly, but she graciously 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. "
