Eating healthy… Alex Johnson’s sister’s ill health was the catalyst for a total change in Alex’s approach to food. Trying to create healthy options that would suit her sister’s shifting dietary complications led her to research, experiment and eventually share a wealth of knowledge about what food is. This journey has culminated in the running of two extremely successful, health conscious restaurants.
We discuss where to source food, how to source healthy food and what to try and avoid. We also chat about how and why Alex successfully turned an award winning pizza business into a health conscious restaurant in the heart of Manly.
There were a lot of books and food suppliers mentioned so I have listed them all here in the order they came up. Any questions, hit me up in the comments and I will do my best to answer, or point you in the right direction.
I’ll be working on the creative project, which Alex and I discuss at the end of this Podcast, over the coming weeks so keep an eye out for an email from me with an animation coming your way. *** (update, the animation is finished, you can see it below, if you can’t see it in your Podcast player, click through to my website (here)
