Hello! My name is Jules Aron and I’m a holistic wellness and nutrition coach, and four-time plant-based cookbook author, including the brand new Pretty Zen duo of books: Fresh and Pure & Nourish and Glow, which celebrate vibrant health, and inner and outer beauty using the healing power of plant foods.
My Fresh Start
I grew up around the kitchen table. My father owned and managed several restaurants, while my mom worked as a chef in some of the most prestigious international hotels. Between the frequent dinner parties they loved to host and the quality of food they chose to serve, they taught me that the best food involves basic techniques, fresh ingredients and a whole lot of love.
My Relationship with Plant-Based Foods
I moved to New York for college and went on to work at many bars and restaurants myself, all the while embracing an active lifestyle as a martial artist. I ate what I thought was a fairly healthy diet at the time, but all the late nights and long hours started catching up with me. I was perpetually tired, got sick frequently and developed other symptoms of adrenal fatigue. That’s when I stepped away from my fast-paced life in the city and began exploring natural healing modalities, such as yoga, Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine. It was during this personal journey that my own relationship with plants and superfoods blossomed. I made it my mission to find simple, fun and delicious ways of enjoying life and celebrating food. It took several more years before I was pushed to share my passion with the world.
Sharing My Passion
There is so much confusion about what to eat these days and it shouldn’t be that complicated. During my time coaching clients, my number one complaint was that eating a nutritious, whole-food diet requires too much time and effort. But frankly, companies like Navitas Organics make introducing nutritious superfoods so easy and delicious!
All the recipes I share in my books and blog, are dairy-free, gluten-free, refined-sugar free, and gut-friendly. Plus, they fight allergies, reduce bloat, fight inflammation and support glowing skin! And some of my favorite superfoods really take the recipes to the next level like Chia Seeds, Hemp Seeds, Cacao, Camu, Maca, Goji Berries, and others. Some of these may sound foreign, but they’ve made it into my books for good reason: they are an amazingly simple way to boost the nutritional value of any recipe.
And this month, I’m extremely honored to be featured as a Navitas Insider. I have been trusting their products with my own health for years and I’m looking forward to sharing more of my journey with you all throughout the month on my Instagram page and, of course, on the Navitas Organics social media platforms. I hope to see you there! I’d love to know more about your own wellness journey, what your favorite superfoods are and if there’s any recipes you’d like me to create, so comment below!
