Known as “KB”, Kristina calls herself a “casual conscious eater.” She’s also a passionate foodie and a lover of all foods, but sadly, not all foods choose to love her back.
Ten years ago, Kristina learned she suffered from a wide variety of food intolerances and allergies, so she incorporated more plant-based foods into her diet in efforts to feel better and very quickly, it became a lifestyle for her. The change was incredible! The Edmonton Journal best put it, “Plant-based foods have proved (my) savior”.
Kristina has over 20 years of experience in the food and beverage industry, and a passion for anything health and wellness relates. In 2014, Kristina decided to pursue her passion in whole, non-processed, plant based foods and study Holistic Nutrition through the Alive Academy of health and wellness. In 2016, Kristina opened the first quick serve, plant base café in the heart of downtown Edmonton called kb&co. Kb&co has been open for almost 2 years and anticipates 3 more locations to be open by the end of 2018.
