As the featured Specialist in the May chapter of Miraval's new book Mindful Living, we asked Junelle to share more about her passions outside of nutrition. We hope you enjoy!
Miraval: Where are you from?
JL: A small iron mining town outside of Lake Placid. I've been at Miraval for 6 years!
Miraval: What is your favorite food?
JL: Raw chocolate
Miraval: Where is your favorite place to travel? Why?
JL: The beach. I don't idle very well, except at the beach. The beach reminds me of how valuable doing absolutely nothing is for my head, body, and spirit.
May 2013 Recipe of the Month
As Miraval incorporates fresh, locally sourced produce seasonally, we encourage you to do the same at home! In May, look for organic tomatoes in your local farmer's market or grocery store to complement this light and low calorie dish of mussels, wine, tomatoes, and herbs from Miraval's Mindful Eating Cookbook. Enjoy with fresh toasted pita chips!
Since its debut in 1995, Miraval has upheld a powerfully simple vision: life is more meaningful and enjoyable when physical, emotional, spiritual, social and intellectual components are in harmony. The way we nourish ourselves is no exception. From nutrition lectures to cooking and baking classes, the culinary programming at Miraval aims to teach guests the techniques by which they can foster healthy relationships with food.
