About

I just think life is amazing.

In high school, working for the Organic Garden Cafe and holistic health counselor, Christine Lucas, I learned that food is powerful. Food can heal us from diabetes and cancer, to migraines and depression!?

Like. What!? I wanted to learn more, so I decided to study dietetics.

IMG_20170724_233119_249Double majoring in dietetics/nutrition/ fitness and health at Purdue University, I had my own monthly series of raw vegan food demonstrations. I taught fitness classes, wrote as the health/fitness columnist, started a vegetarian club, and gave talks at local grocery stores, got kale on the salad bar… you name it. I’m here to save the world!

After the combined grad school / dietetic internship program at Texas A&M, I became a registered dietitian and worked at Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s Health Oasis in Boca Raton, FL where I was able to control what my patients were eating, allowing them to break free from toxic food addictions, form new habits, and get off of their medications.

Today, I am expanding my practice to people like you.  I’m extremely passionate about life and hope to help others truly live it.  Are you dealing with health issues? Constantly wanting to diet? Feeling shame, guilt, and the thoughts of wanting eat something naughty consuming your brain?  I’ve been there. And I can help!  Please feel free to contact me at k.reines1@gmail.com. Food freedom is ours for the taking!

My prayer to you:

May you embody love, joy, gratitude, fulfillment, optimal health, and radiant energy, for ever, ever, and ever ❤

Hope to be in touch with you soon.

  1. I love the story of how you discovered veganism and eating raw. You’re SO lucky that you discovered this path so young. And the fact that you’re going into a career where you can help other people change their lives is wonderful!! I’m really excited for you! Thanks so much for following my blog too. Celeste 🙂

    1. Wow! Thanks, that’s so cool to hear! Ya I love your blog! Hope I stick with this path! School is quite challenging! You’re so sweet, let me know if there’s anything I can do to make your life easier!
      Katie 🙂

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Love your story and how you plan on help others find their bliss.

    Funny I found my way here just when I was searching for healthy stuff to make for my family. We’re not vegans (yet) but we love raw food in general. Your recipes look so exciting. Definitely going to try some.

    1. AHH! THANK YOU SO MUCH! So neat! Something that started as my little diary that only my mom read (and the people who kept asking what the heck I eat) haha.. so cool that it’s reaching awesome people like you! Let me know if you have any questions! Much love!

      Katie 🙂

  3. Wow! You ROCK, Katie!! Double majors in dietetics and fitness, amazing. You inspire and are inspired!! … By the way my mother is a retired dietitian and she taught me alot about good nutrition just by her example. 🙂

    1. No way!! You lucky to have a dietitian for a mom! I bet you grew up with the best!! Thank you so much for the kind words! I love your blog and am very inspired by you as well! Keep it up! Glad to know you’re out there! Keep in touch!
      Katie 🙂

  4. Yes, way! And I was very lucky, we lived in a junk food ban zone! Lol! … Thanks for enjoying my blog! This is way cool as I just in the past two days moved my blog from Blogger to here ~ tediously moving posts over! lol! And what a glorious welcome and response I’ve got! 😀

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog. Sorry my picture wasn’t up yet. I have to say am and not a Vegan but intrigued. I do love my veggies but it is a slow process (change I mean). I was brought up as a meet and potatoes guy. Now, I dabble in organic gardening. Best of luck.

  6. Hi there. You said you didn’t know much about tempeh. We produced Betsy’s Tempeh in Mich. for 9 1/2 years back in the mid 80’s selling our tempeh in both patty and grated form that our customers loved! Since retiring we set up a website showing our easy method for making tempeh at home with lovely visuals. More recently we filed a patent for a tempeh incubator that could be used in restaurants or small shops making artisan tempeh for the local community. Stay in touch for future development since we will begin testing the new appliance within the next week or so.

  7. I completely agree and LOVE your philosophy!! What an inspiration. It is amazing that you are pursuing so many avenues to create a holistic approach. I am working on certification in Stott Pilates and am taking a college nutrition class. I also grew up in an “alternative” household, although not of the doctor and foodie variety. Anyway, I hope to inspire people to be healthy through dance, fitness and food as well. I can’t wait to read more here. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  8. Thanks for following my blog. I’m so glad you did because I love yours! I am a vegetarian and gluten free for almost 2 years now, and agree with you about the power of nutritional choices and activity level being essential to our overall well being (“every cell in my body responds to every thought I think”-so true and a major reason why I practice yoga)…it’s inspiring to hear your story and how much you care about the career/lifestyle path you have chosen. I look forward to reading more and trying some of your recipes in the future.
    Namaste! _/\_

  9. Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog! While I’m not vegan, I love to eat plant-based. I’ve seen & experienced the powerful effects that positive diet and lifestyle choices have on health and I look forward to checking out more of your posts!

    1. Awesome Rosie! I love your blog! I look forward to following as well. That’s cool that you notice how good food makes you feel. Most people don’t even know how good their bodies are supposed to feel! We are quite lucky. Have fun blogging 😀 ❤

  10. Thank you so much for the like on my recent blog! I hope you will continue reading!

    Also, it’s awesome to have some support from a fellow Boilermaker, much less in the same majors! Hail Purdue!

  11. Hi Katie! Fellow Marbleheader here… I find your blog amazing! I’m on a health journey after my freshmen year of college having terrible health habits! I love that you are doing this for all the right reasons. Will continue to read your advice… thank you 🙂
