Julie has been described as a “walking encyclopaedia of food!” Understanding the wisdom contained within food has always fascinated her.
As a child I was a classic ‘GAPS’, IBS child – antibiotics at birth, at 3 months old hospitalized with digestive issues, then onto the merry-go-round with a tick in every digestive issue box. As a Virgo, I’m a logical gal and it seemed really logical that food is the most common ‘medicine’ we ingest every day – so to therefore understand what the effects are of this daily medication.
Yet where to discover the truth?
The food information given to the public changes every few years. What’s a girl to do? And so the food as medicine quest began – to turn over every stone, read, study, learn… uncover the truth! I studied everything I could get my hands on – completed formal studies at university and colleges, certificates, cooking, health and spiritual seminars, my friends laugh that most of them met me on a course of some kind.
And still this has not quenched my thirst for understanding food. It’s still my passion – Love It!
