Julie Fox has been passionate about good food and good health for two decades, but when her husband Mike was diagnosed with Barrett’s Esophagus in December 2015, it caused her to re-evaluate what those words really mean. Julie and Mike made significant diet changes, omitting processed foods, grains, dairy and refined sugar from their diet.
While Julie was committed to helping her husband heal with good health, she also made a commitment to help him heal with good food. Real good food. Julie began making tasty snacks like almond butters, cashew butters and grain-free granolas with only real, good-for-you ingredients… Julie’s Real was born.
