Today I’m talking nutrition with registered dietician Lauren Zimmerman. Lauren is the Director of Nutrition at Synchronicity, a recovery, and wellness center. At the center, Lauren offers cooking classes, gut reset programs, and gives plant-based nutritional talks. All to help her clients live their optimal life.  

From a young age, Lauren was interested in cooking as a way to give to others, which led her to become a dietician. She became interested in plant-based nutrition when she was working as a dietician with cardiac recovery patients. Through her research, she discovered the many heart benefits of a plant-based diet.  

One of the biggest takeaways from my conversation with Lauren was to view recipes as a template, you can make small tweaks to shake things up, but don’t have to be super creative. I hope as you listen, you gain useful insights as well. 


Show Highlights 

  • Embracing cooking allows you to focus on including more whole-food ingredients.
  • If you want to experiment with plant-based nutrition, begin with one meal a day.  
  • Try new recipes with plant ingredients as substitutes.
  • When traveling, stay hydrated, bring healthy snacks, and try local restaurants over chains.
  • Better nutrition can lead to more stable energy levels, better mental clarity, and better sleep patterns.  


“I saw food as an expression and something to give to. I still see food as making something for others.”  Lauren Zimmerman
