Crystal is a busy medical sales professional by day and a Paleo blogger by night. With a love for learning, cooking & eating, Crystal regards herself as a ‘Real Food’ foodie. But one who is temporarily restricted by a sensitivity to foods high in salicylates and amines. She is currently working on managing her stressors, healing a leaky gut, rebalancing hormones and addressing disordered eating. As a certified Food Coach and a Peninsula Mindfulness and Meditation Leader, Crystal is looking to help others reconnect with their primal selves. In the meantime she can be found talking ‘food as medicine’ on the Eat Sleep Move blog and Facebook Page.
Jo is originally from NZ but has been happily calling Melbourne home for the past 10 years. After a brief flirtation with vegetarianism and a heart breaking long term relationship with chronic cardio, Jo was left hormonally broken. Two years ago she turned to a Primal lifestyle in order to find the underlying causes of her hormonal dysfunction and start the healing process. Not only did Jo begin turning her health around, she also developed a keen interest in all things paleo. Jo is a food coach who also heads up the Melbourne Paleo Meetup Group and related Facebook page. She has also recently launched the Eating Well Out online blog that is dedicated to great primal dining experiences in Melbourne.
