If anyone in your life can make things easier or sustainable, it is Certified Health Coach, Kate Cleveland. Cleveland is helping the local senior centers roll back into reality, with her “Kiss your Food,” philosophy. Her one woman show allows you to access a health ally, accountability partner, sounding board, source of information and most importantly, a support system.

After more than year of being stuck at home, how can a health coach help you in the short and the long term? “I help people set and achieve health goals,” said Cleveland. “I do this through education, accountability, habit change, and immense amounts of support.”


Her work is centered around helping clients learn to eat what fuels their bodies. The long-range goal, allows individuals to make better choices so they feel better, have more energy, sleep deeper, and ultimately live and thrive longer, into their advanced years.

Cleveland believes that our health and nutritional choices go hand-in-hand, at every stage of life. She hopes to educate that by eating more whole and real foods on a daily basis, we promote longevity. She wants to highlight that she just doesn’t mean an increase in life span. “We can enhance what is termed the ‘health span,’” said Cleveland. “The number of years you spend feeling your BEST!”


Cleveland attended both college and grad school, at Oregon State University. She studied Nutrition and Toxicology in the Linus Pauling Institute (LPI), at Oregon State University. She was inspired by Pauling, American chemist, biochemist, chemical engineer, peace activist, author, and educator. “I was blessed to be accepted into a program where I could perform my graduate research under the guidance of some of the best.”

The classes will be offered on Wednesday, May 26th, National Senior Fitness Day, and again on June 28th from 10am-11am. You should register for the May class, as soon as possible and sign up for June, after the 1st. She looks forward to telling you why it is important to eat fruits and vegetables, from all colors, in the rainbow. If you don’t have time for the free class, although donations are accepted, you can learn how to enlist her services at www.kissyourfood.com.
