I’m Julie… a Jersey girl who is embracing her inner shine with wholesome foods!
I’m a gluten-free vegetarian as of September 2010 and I love animals, dipping dark chocolate chips in peanut butter, and eating fruit until my face falls off. Food has always been a big part of my life, all the flavors, textures, and smells of food entices me and I love to be connected to everything I put into my body. Whether it be coming straight from my garden or as wholesome and clean as possible, I believe that when you eat the energy of the Earth, you will feel your best and your inner shine will literally shine through.
I love to be silly and goofy and I try not to take life too seriously. A smile is the best accessory you can wear! …and so is a mustache from that chocolate you’ve been eating.
I love love love to eat dessert and I don’t think there’s a day that goes by that I don’t have a sweet treat. Sometimes my body craves sweets in the form of fruit but other times, nothing will satisfy me until I get to that piece of chocolate or a creamy, cold bowl of ice cream. Nothing is ever off limits for me, but everything is in moderation (usually ;)).
I believe that food should be fun, too! I love trying out new ingredients and adding them into my every day go-to meals to make them that much more nutritious and interesting.
I love to exercise, mainly running, but I’m always up to trying new ways to get fit and stay healthy! I used to exercise solely for image but now I work out because I feel great and I love to energize myself with the endorphins I get from a great workout. Even just 10 minutes can totally make a difference!
I hope you join me as I unleash my inner shine and embrace a life full of wholesome foods!
