An Educator &
As a Vegan Lifestyle Coach & Educator (VLCE) I am certified to coach, counsel, educate and guide individuals and groups interested in transitioning & adopting a vegan lifestyle. I can help you incorporate more plant based food in your kitchen, plan & prepare meals, teach you how to shop and read labels, and eat healthfully, even on a budget. Additionally, I can help with social and emotional issues surrounding this lifestyle change.
COOK & TEACH
As a Culinary Nutrition Expert (CNE) and Food For Life Instructor (FFL), I’m certified to teach individuals, groups and corporations on how to create a nutritious eating plan utilizing whole plant-based ingredients that are chosen consciously, organically, and locally when possible. I teach clients how to use these ingredients in simple recipes that are balanced, nutritious, healing, and most importantly filling.
I AM A BOOT MAKER
A PRETTY DARN GOOD VEGAN COOK
“With Kat Mendenhall’s glorious boots, I took my first steps into the world of the custom-made. Let me just say: now I get it. These boots are not only fashion-forward to the smallest detail, they fit like they were made for me because, incredibly, they were. And the marriage of a cruelty-free ethic and country-western style is pretty much perfect for a Main Street vegan like me.”
– Victoria Moran, author of Main Street Vegan
