In addition to her books, Kat enjoys spreading the word about a raw food diet and other lifestyle aspects in her videos on YouTube, where she has a large following. She makes her “advice-style” videos in response to questions she receives as well as myths and misconceptions in the health world. In a recent tongue-in-cheek video post, TOP 10 TIPS – Turn your Partner/Family Member/Friend Raw VEGAN, she playfully offers advice on “turning” people vegan. She, of course, understands that we cannot change people – but recognizes the impact influence has on those around us and the encouragement that our own enjoyment of healthy lifestyle options gives to others. The purpose of Kat’s videos are to share the low fat raw vegan message in a fun and creative way, inspiring others to follow their heart and live their authentic life and  spreading awareness of the principles of natural hygiene so that others may find balance in their life, naturally. www.kat-green.com | Instagram | Twitter
