Lauren Panoff, MPH, RD is a registered dietitian nutritionist and writer with over a decade of experience in various areas of health and wellness.

After graduating from Colorado State University with her undergraduate degree in dietetics, Lauren completed her dietetic internship at the University of Michigan Health System. Shortly thereafter, she obtained her Master of Public Health degree at Michigan State University with a focus on the environmental health impacts of the standard American diet.

Lauren started her dietetics career at the University of Michigan Health System as a clinical dietitian, providing medical nutrition therapy and education to a wide array of inpatient and outpatient populations. She then moved on to become a staff dietitian at the Center for Eating Disorders in Ann Arbor, providing outpatient eating disorder counseling.

Following her clinical work, Lauren moved to public health, working for a third party product testing, inspection, and certification organization in Michigan. She worked as a project manager for dietary supplement testing and certification, and as a public health standards development liaison for the recreational water industry.

Writing has always been a passion for Lauren, and she decided to pursue it professionally once she became a parent. She specializes in elevating the plant-based niche, and now works primarily in content marketing and copywriting for a growing number of health and wellness brands.

She loves teaching others about the relationship between personal food choices and the larger world around us, in terms of public health, the environment, and animals. Her primary goal is to connect people with the information and resources they need for success.

Lauren brings a diverse background in nutrition science, consumer safety, and environmental health to her work, as well as a compassionate, open-minded, and realistic approach for readers and clients.

Outside of work, you can usually find Lauren doing something active, outdoors, in the kitchen, playing guitar, or doing creative projects with her kids.
