Welcome to Hooked On Plants 🙂
I’m Julia, a…
– Registered Holistic Nutritionist (2016 graduate from Canadian School of Natural Nutrition)
– Certified Plant-Based Chef (Rouxbe Culinary School)
- – Certified Raw Food Chef (The Healing Cuisine)
– Business owner (Jules Fuel)
– Olympian (Ski Cross, Vancouver 2010).
I’m also just a girl who grew up in Whistler BC, who loves nature, biking, skiing, hiking, paddle boarding, the ocean, dancing, animals, farmer’s markets, travelling, camping, family, friends, my tribe, and food!
I became completely vegan 2 years ago, after close to a year of slowly replacing chicken, fish, meat, cheese, and dairy with whole-food, plant-based options. Since then, my excitement for food has sky-rocketed, my relationship with food has become easy and emotionally healthier (I now have more excitement about eating in abundance, because whole, plant-foods are naturally low-calorie, nutrient-dense and are easily assimilated by the body), and my passion for sharing these recipes and new found knowledge grew to a point that I need an outlet!
I could go on about the reasons why I’m so passionate about this lifestyle, but instead I’ll send you over to ‘Why Go Vegan’ to read all about it.
Here, you will find recipes to inspire you to add more whole, plant foods into your LIFE. It’s all about eating a whole food, plant-based diet for your body to thrive on, so you can live your life with the clean, bursting energy. Going vegan is about getting closer to your healthiest self, helping the animals and minimizing the environmental impact by simply choosing what you put on your plate.
Most of my recipes are oil-free, refined sugar-free, salt-free, gluten-free and unprocessed. Don’t worry, they’re still bursting with flavour, and sometimes I stray from these clean eating rules to re-create childhood comfort food faves minus the animal products.
I’m so you’ve found me here for plant-based recipes, vegan information and inspiration. I am loving this plant-based lifestyle, and I know you will too.
Here’s to getting hooked on plants, and eating the rainbow.
