Welcome

Hi, I’m Kristina 👋

I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist, environmental educator, and creator of the plant-rich food blog Fork in the Road. I live in Sacramento, CA with my husband, 3-year-old daughter, and a tuxedo cat named Penguin.

I created Fork in the Road because I’m passionate about helping others eat more plants, no matter if you’re already a vegan or just dipping your toe in plant-based eating waters. My goal is to get more plants on your plate at every meal!

Where it all began

I created Fork in the Road in 2015 as a way to share my favorite recipes from my travels with family and friends (hence the name, Fork in the Road). Over the years I began sharing more plant-rich recipes as my husband and I shifted to eating a more plant-based diet.

Today Fork in the Road has grown into a destination for plant-based recipes and green living resources with over 150,000 monthly readers. The site has been featured in publications such as Healthline, Food Tank, Self Magazine, VeryWell, and more.

How to work together

After years of running Fork in the Road as a solo creative project while working a full-time job at a foodservice company (fun fact, I still work full-time!) I realized I miss the interaction of working with people directly and helping them realize the powerful way eating a plant-rich diet can impact your life.

In 2024 I launched Plant Powered Kitchen School my (very low cost) plant-based kitchen education and support community with everything you need to powerfully transition to a plant-based lifestyle. It includes my signature meal planning method, 52 weeks of vegan meal plans, monthly Q&A calls and events, and a robust community of plant-curious eaters all taking the “fork in the road” on the plant path together.
