About 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 sufficient. So, we gave plant-based eating a try and his cholesterol levels normalised. Amazed, I continued to learn about the many significant ways our diet impacts our health. Indeed, diet is by far the leading cause of disease. I became passionate about inspiring people to eat delicious and nutritious plant-based food for maximal 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.
