“We always knew that plant-based nutrition was the way to go in terms of a healthy and ethical lifestyle for our young family. In the kitchen, we lacked the confidence and know-how to be able to make fulfilling meals where the ingredients were completely vegan inspired. Through her onsite coaching and cooking demonstrations, Teresa’s positive influence and culinary expertise has helped us build up our knowledge base to make better informed decisions on the process of cooking with plant-based materials, while instilling the assurance that vegan cooking can, in fact, be delicious!”

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.
