Julie S. Ong’s love for cooking began more than fifteen years ago, when she asked a friend to teach her how to cook.
But instead of a lesson on sauteing or baking, she learned why our food choices are essential to our well-being and it inspired her to create a healthier lifestyle for herself, while she learned the essentials of cooking.
As Julie studied at the Kushi Institute and worked on becoming a certified natural chef at Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition and Culinary Arts, she realized some of the ailments that had constantly plagued her throughout her life (severe acne, migraines, sinusitis) began to fade away with her new approach to food.
And she cooked for cancer survivors, combining her new macrobiotic cooking skills with coaching to increase their recovery and vitality.
Julie was soon tapped by Adams Media to write The Everything® Guide to Macrobiotics book which appeared on bookshelves in 2010.
Today, Julie has created an online resource at Juliesong.wordpress.com that complements her book. She provides coaching and training to people who want more vitality in their lives.
Three things you may not know about Julie:
- When she isn’t cooking, she watches reruns of Long Island Medium.
- Her motto is “Eat better, live better, love better!”
- She believes being of part Chinese descent has driven her curiosity for the balance (the yin and the yang) approach to holistic eating.
