Welcome to PB&Julie!

So happy you stopped by! I’m Julie, self-proclaimed peanut butter lover and Pure Barre rockstar. I hope to make this space a place of comfort and positivity where you'll find nourishing recipes, inspiration and healthy lifestyle tips as I share my journey through this sticky, sweet but always delicious life. While most of my recipes are vegan, I do not identify with the vegan label. I do not like to put myself in a box as I find that creates anxiety over food which is supremely unhealthy and can lead to disordered eating. Instead, I eat "good mood food," which are foods in their whole, unprocessed states with lots of vitamins and minerals that keep my mood elevated and my energy high. I trust my body to tell me what it needs, and I encourage you to listen to your unique and awesome body too! I love sharing things that make me happy, work for me and make me feel completely ALIVE in hopes that you too will experiment and find your joy! Everyone is welcome here :)

I’m Mommy to the sweetest 8 year old little guy and precious almost 2 year old Emma Kate, wifey to a hot pilot techie guy, and lover of this big, beautiful world. Thanks for joining me in my humble endeavor to share a bit more health, happiness and positivity... the world can always use a bit more of the good stuff I think. xoxo
