About the Author: Teresa Ford
My journey to a whole-food plant-based diet started with my husband’s struggle with high cholesterol. He wanted to avoid taking medication, but the dietitian-prescribed changes weren’t going to be sufficient. So we gave plant-based eating a try and his cholesterol levels dropped into the normal range. Amazed, I continued to learn about the many significant ways our diet impacts our health. I became passionate about inspiring people to eat delicious and nutritious plant-based food for maximum wellness by way of writing, speaking and coaching services. I have a Nutritional Science degree and worked in the field of clinical research for many years. As a Mayo Clinic Certified Wellness Coach, I apply best practices to help people make lasting improvements in their approach to eating.
