About Us


Functional Fueling Nutrition was founded in 2014 by Lauren Papanos. Lauren holds both her bachelor's and master's degrees in nutrition and dietetics. She is nationally licensed as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) by the Commission on Dietetic Registration and is board certified as a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD). Ms. Papanos is trained in integrative medicine and sports nutrition specialties. During her Dietetic Internship, she found her passion for integrative medicine and sports nutrition. She went on to become a Sports Dietitian Fellow and has since held various roles in Division I intercollegiate athletics as a Sports Dietitian. Through each role she has worked to bring integrative medicine to the athletic population. The goal of Functional Fueling Nutrition is to help people live healthier and longer lives through using food-as-medicine. Many clients that come to Ms. Papanos' practice include those with hormonal imbalances, performance goals, disordered eating, autoimmune conditions, and digestion issues.
