ABOUT FOX HILL KITCHENS
Hi! I’m Julie Fox-McClure. I have lived in the beautiful countryside of Northern Vermont for the past two decades on a 20-acre mini-farm with my husband Hilary and my children Zoe (16) and Owen (10). We’ve raised an assortment of animals over the years, along with a large vegetable and herb garden. I have been a food professional, baker, sometime chef and caterer for my entire adult life and have a culinary degree from New England Culinary Institute.
I’ve always struggled some with my weight, especially after the birth of my second child when I was 42. I also acquired an autoimmune digestive disorder called lymphocytic colitis. My husband has been working with a paleo diet since 2001 and it had been very good for him, so at the age of 44 I started with low-carb and then went more paleo. My digestive problems cleared up without drugs, and fifty pounds melted off and stayed off.
I was very disciplined with my diet and was sorry to say goodbye to bread and my identity as a baker, but none of the substitute products or recipes worked for me or my family. I couldn’t give up the idea of bread and kept tinkering with formulas until I found something that really worked.
You haven’t heard of us before, because Paleo(f)x 2015 was our official launch. I’ve been sitting on these buns for a couple of years, selling locally to friends and family and a nutritionist who uses it for clients with metabolic disorders. Giving up bread seems to be a major obstacle for some people trying to turn their health around, and this product can help with that.
