Jess’s fondest food memories
Jessica’s fondest memory of food is a more recent one when she discovered raw food restaurants in Bali. She also loves how people enjoy healthy food when they have a pre-conceived idea of what they are getting into.
She does what she can when she can. Like 20 minutes of running up a hill. She loves her yoga.
