I am beyond excited to have not one, but two of my ALL TIME FAVORITE ladies, graciously bless us with their presence on our blog. I am pleased to introduce you to Chef AJ and Julieanna Hever, also known as”The Chef and The Dietitian“. Both of these beautiful souls have generously offered to giveaway their books to a lucky reader on our PBJ blog, in celebration of my one year anniversary of living a plant-based lifestyle. How fabulous are they? CLICK HERE to read more about my anniversary.
Chef AJ was Part 1 of our giveaway. CLICK HERE to read more about Chef AJ and her awesome self, and our first giveaway. Today, I am honored to have Julieanna Hever, the Plant-Based Dietitian, as Part 2 of our Anniversary Giveaway.
I would like to start off by saying that these two amazing ladies, and their books, have helped me more than I can ever put into words. They both are tremendous inspirations, and role models who live by example. I have learned a tremendous amount regarding a plant-based lifestyle, from both of them. Please check out their websites, and read their books. Chef AJ can be found at http://www.eatunprocessed.com/, and her book is Unprocessed (with over 100 easy, delicious, nutrient-rich and gluten-free recipes).
Even though my one year celebration was in September, and I do realize that it is now February, I was waiting for just the right time to share Julieanna’s book, and interview with everyone. Our interview with Julieanna will be a little different than my previous interviews with our other blog guests. Instead of interviewing her via e-mail and then posting it here on our blog, I will be interviewing her LIVE, on our PBJ Radio Show. CLICK HERE to learn how to watch our LIVE Internet Talk Radio Show, find out the dates and times, and who our featured guests will be. I was able to catch the lovely Julieanna at just the right time, and the PBJ family will have the honor of getting to talk with her next Sunday, February 17th!! I AM SOOOOOOO EXCITED, I CANNOT WAIT!!
Who wants to know more about Julieanna, and why I am soooo excited that she is giving away a copy of her book?
Who is Julieanna Hever?
Julieanna Hever, M.S., R.D., C.P.T. , also known as The Plant-Based Dietitian, is a passionate advocate of the miracles associated with following a whole food, plant-based diet-the established effects of which provide positive healthful benefits.
Julieanna is the host of Veria Living Network’s What Would Julieanna Do?, author of the best-selling book, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition, and the nutrition columnist for VegNews Magazine. She is the co-author of the The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Gluten-Free Vegan Cooking, which she wrote with Chef Beverly Lynn Bennett. Julieanna was recently featured on The Dr. Oz Show, The Steve Harvey Show, E! News, Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell, TEDxCONEJO 2012, Fox 13 Seattle Morning News, and Reluctantly Healthy, co-stars on The Chef and The Dietitian, on numerous radio shows, and lectures extensively throughout the United States. Julieanna counsels a variety of clients throughout the world from her Los Angeles, California-based private practice including elite athletes, adults, and children with various nutritional and/or medical concerns. She is published in prominent journals, magazines, blogs, and newsletters. As co-producer and star of the “infotainment” documentary To Your Health, Julieanna interviewed a host of the plant-based world’s most respected doctors and researchers to bring this important information to film and television audiences. Julieanna is also a Special Consultant for the best-selling documentary, Forks Over Knives, and she has contributed recipes to both Forks Over Knives‘ books. Her work as the Executive Director of EarthSave, International, has also provided an opportunity for Julieanna to bring whole food, plant-based nutrition to the forefront of efforts to improve the current global health crisis.
Julieanna received her Bachelors degree from UCLA and Masters of Science in Nutrition at California State University, Northridge, where she also completed her Dietetic Internship. She has taught as part of Dr. T. Colin Campbell’s eCornell Plant-Based Nutrition Certification Program, worked as a clinical dietitian at Century City Doctors Hospital, and has consulted for numerous businesses.
Highlights with Julieanna
Julieanna’s interview with the radiant Whitney Lauritsen, known as Eco-Vegan Gal, about the scoop on some deets about her new wellness talk show on Veria Living, What Would Julieanna Do? For more info, click here and here and to check out more about Veria, click here.
Another favorite of mine, is the Plant-Based Plate Magnet. CLICK HERE to get yours.
In The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition, readers will find:
- Where to get nutrients that others get from meat and dairy.
- How to avoid the vegan pitfall of overfed but undernourished.
- How to spot hidden animal ingredients in packaged foods.
- Tips for eating at restaurants.
- Special considerations for children and seniors.
I know I have said this before, but this book is my Plant-Based Bible. Julieanna’s book also includes delicious recipes, which include: smoothies, breakfast goodies like blueberry banana pancakes, dressings, dinner meals like my favorite beans and greens chili, tasty snacks such as simply hummus, to scrumptious sweets that includes Chef AJ’s Outrageous Brownies and unclassic oatmeal raisin cookies, to name a few. She was also nice enough to even include some sample meal plans, nutrition charts, and a long list of resources to include: informational books, plant-based cookbooks, nutrition and health information, and even where to order food products.
I cannot sing enough praise about this book, as it has now been 17 months since I began my plant-based journey, and this book has been there for me every step of the way. I refer to it on a frequent basis regarding questions I receive about carbs, protein, dairy, vitamins, minerals, supplements, plant-based pregnancy, kids, seniors, athletes, weight loss, dodging diseases with diet, plant-based substitutions (how do I cook without eggs, what do I drink instead of dairy milk, what “meat” options are available, is there a substitute for cheese?)…I could go on and on. Julieanna touches on all of these subjects, and many more in her book. Again, I cannot recommend this book enough to EVERYONE. It is not just for newbies to this lifestyle, it is definitely for everyone. We ALL can benefit tremendously from this book.
I could spend all day raving about this fabulous human being. Let’s get to the GIVEAWAY, shall we?
