As a performer, your lifestyle is not the same as the average person’s daily 9-to-5 routine. You’re up late, you have busy rehearsal schedules, you eat when you can because, despite whatever is happening in your life, the show must go on!
So when I had the chance to speak with Julieanna Hever and Ray Cronise I thanked my lucky stars. Their approach to nutrition is saving lives – just ask Penn Jillette or Kevin Smith.
Julieanna and Ray wrote “The Idiot’s Guide to Plant Based Nutrition.” The book goes deep into the science of nutrition but also has super-handy summaries at the end of each chapter with a list of “The least you need to know.”
The book has everything from tips on how to equip your kitchen, ( I loved the bit about handy utensils) to a chapter on the plant-based pregnancy.
Julieanna Hever completed her bachelors of arts degree in Theatre from UCLA and then went on to do a masters of science degree in Nutrition from Cal State Northridge, thus bridging her three biggest passions for life food, performing, and helping people.
Ray Cronise is a former NASA scientist currently focused on disrupting diet and nutrition advice. He helped Penn Jillette, and Kevin Smith recover from near-death experiences and has helped thousands of others regain the youthful vitality that comes with proper nutrition.
