Julie Daniluk

Bio

Julie Daniluk hosts Healthy Gourmet, a reality cooking show that highlights the ongoing battle between taste and nutrition by using unique groups such as bikers, dragon boat racers and ballroom dancers to challenge their taste buds with nutritious foods. Julie is excited that her show was chosen to be part of OWN (the Oprah Winfrey Network). Similar to Oprah’s book club, programs on OWN explore stories of strength and transformation. Television viewers also recognize Julie from her “busted” segments on The Right Fit (W Network) and The Marilyn Denis Show (CTV) where she examines the foods people need to stay healthy, acting as a nutrition encyclopedia. Her fun and engaging style comes in handy when she creates articles and recipes that are packed with health tips for www.chatelaine.com.
 
After four years of rigorous theatre arts training, Julie found herself reading more about nutrition than about Shakespeare. She had an insatiable appetite for figuring out how and why food affects us so profoundly. She went back to school to become a nutritionist, graduating from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, and went on to become a co-operative owner of one of Canada’s largest health food stores, The Big Carrot Natural Food Market. Julie was also health editor for Viva Magazine, a Canadian natural health publication with a national circulation of over 120,000. As a contributor for many online and print magazines, Julie continues to answer diet and nutrition questions from viewers and readers around the world. She offers entertaining and informative answers about why we crave certain foods, while suggesting alternatives for optimal health.
 
Julie’s food activism has led her to speak to the Canadian Government about the potential health risks of genetically modified food. In order to bring food advocacy issues to a wider audience, Julie has been the event producer for festivals such as Bio-Diversity with David Suzuki and FoodShare's Field to Table Festival.
 
Julie’s search for nutritional understanding has taken her around the world. Her greatest joy to date has been cooking on the Greenpeace tall sailing ship the Rainbow Warrior during its GE-free New Zealand tour.
 
After many years of working on the frontline of the nutrition field, Julie’s clients continually asked for a menu-planning healing focused cookbook. Her first book, Meals That Heal Inflammation, helps people enjoy allergy free foods that taste great and assist the body in the healing process.
