Hi! I’m Katherine from Plant-Based in Real Life. I blog about the whole food, plant-based (WFPB) diet for the prevention and reversal of chronic disease. I love writing about how eating plant-based foods can help you live a long and healthy life. I first learned of the “plant slant”, eating mostly plants for optimal health, from The Blue Zones by Dan Buettner, and my family decided to go entirely plant-based after watching the Forks Over Knives documentary.

I hold an undergraduate degree in International Trade from the Universidad de Guanajuato in central Mexico and a Master in Management from Southern Oregon University. In 2017 I completed the Center for Nutrition Studies’ Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition.
