About Ashley

Ashley Krautkramer, RD, CSOWM, CD, CDCES

I am a registered dietitian with more than six years experience working with bariatric surgery patients. I have been vegan for 15 years.

Thank you for visiting. I am passionate about helping people who have had bariatric surgery go and stay vegan by providing support and evidence-based nutrition information.

I have been vegan since 2006 and love to help others on their vegan journey-from people who have been vegan for many years, to people who are just curious about veganism or incorporating more plants into their diets.

I have been a dietitian since 2014 and working with bariatric surgery patients since then at a hospital system in northeastern Wisconsin, USA. I am a certified diabetes care and education specialist (CDCES) and a board certified specialist in obesity and weight management (CSOWM). I am a bariatric AND vegan nutrition expert and I am here to help you feel supported as you navigate your bariatric journey as a vegan.
