About the book: All who obsess over food will be nourished by Truppi’s unapologetic food journey from reckless habits to inflexible foodie to trusting herself amidst dietary chaos. Yes, she drove people nuts with her unwavering determination to eat according to her environmental values. Her insatiable hunger for personal awareness and nutrient-idealism challenged her relationships and caused friction in otherwise normal life events. This passion also reframed her mind-body-spirit awareness and fed a desire to pursue a graduate degree in nutrition and integrative health.
In this constant questioning of choices and inherent craving for something more, food both grounded and uplifted her through love and loss, marriage and motherhood, birth and death, fulfillment and depletion, adventure and freedom.
Jamie Truppi’s life centers around food, people, nature, wellbeing, traveling, and cultivating meaningful experiences in this short, crazy life. A functional nutritionist with a master’s degree in science and nutrition and board certified as a Certified Nutrition Specialist, she guides mostly women healing from gut-brain-stress dis-ease. Certified in permaculture & design and in yoga, she’s also an environmental nerd, edible educator, food writer, kitchen experimentalist, farmers market enthusiast, mountain girl, and yogi. She loves adventuring with her two curious children around her hometown of Hailey, Idaho, and beyond.
