Through embracing a plant based diet, and simultaneously embarking on a deep meditation practice, “SriMati” healed herself of a large cyst in her neck, which doctors diagnosed as an incurable ailment. This experience gave her an intimate connection to food, and proved to her the miraculous ability of the body to heal itself when supported with pure whole living foods and a connection to the soul.
Julie nourished her vegan endurance athlete husband, Rich Roll through years of training and racing proving without a doubt that man can truly thrive on plants alone! Mother to five children ranging from 24 to 9, she prides herself on creating “real” food to nourish and satisfy a diverse range of palettes.
Julie aka SriMati has created and tested countless plant based recipes inspired from her journey, in her kitchen studio at her home in Malibu, California. She has also given many cooking demonstrations and public classes to share the ease, beauty and deliciousness of plant based foods. Her dishes are fresh, creative, easy and full of flavor specifically designed to nourish and nurture hungry families.
