Happy New Year!
I hope you are feeling fresh, invigorated, and inspired to make this your best year yet. I am really excited and inspired for this next year in the life of Julia’s Kitchen and the manifestation of our intention to help people reconnect with food and reap the benefits of all the beauty, vibrancy, and richness it brings to our lives.
If you are on board with this intention, we want to give you, and ourselves, a little jump start, so we have a special offer…a chance to win a free individualized Food Empowerment Session with Julia. I don’t want to sound too woo-woo, but that’s the best phrase I can think of to describe what I’d like to offer. What exactly “food empowerment” means depends on what you as an individual need. It could mean learning the basics of veg-centric food preparation, it could mean a pantry makeover, it could mean gaining a greater understanding of the diverse array of whole foods available to us, and how to keep them nutritious and make them delicious, it could mean learning to shift from old habits in the kitchen to new ones, or revamping old favorite recipes to be more health supportive and nourishing. The goal is to teach you whatever you need to learn about food to make your best choices. I’ll meet you wherever you are with food right now and we will figure out together how you can be more empowered around food.
The rules of this contest are simple: For the next two weeks (Sunday January 5th through Sunday January 19th), for every $15 spent at Julia’s Kitchen, you will receive one entry into our drawing. Just one person per entry please, but you can enter yourself or someone else.
Maybe you don’t know me that well, so here is my philosophy around food: I think we could make amazing, significant, substantial gains in our food system, our environment, and the overall health (all kinds) of our society by simply getting ourselves back in the kitchen and eating more plants. Not necessarily all plants; everyone’s body needs a little something different. The percentage that comes to mind is 75%, and of course I’m talking about plants in their whole, minimally processed form. If you think about it, this applies to everyone regardless of what makes up that other 25% of food on the plate. Instead of seeing food through a divisive lens, isn’t it nice to just focus on what we all have in common?
We are looking forward to many opportunities to nourish you in the year to come, so please spread the word to anyone who might want to know, and stay tuned!
