Julia Murray, a born and raised Whistlerite, daughter of the late Crazy Canuck, Dave Murray, a 2010 ski cross Olympian and world championship silver medallist is now ready to meet you at the breakfast table.
Jules Fuel for breakfast was something Julia started developing well before the Olympics. She was in need of a low glycemic option for breakfast that would sustain her throughout her full days of training, and a concoction that would allow her to feel full and light at the same time, so that she could get the most out of her body and her day.
Since retiring from competition, she decided to take it to the Whistler Farmers' Market because of the interest from friends and family in her special recipe. After positive feedback at the markets, and with her entrepreneurial spirit, she is now taking it to the next step. Not only is Julia a passionate foodie, she is also becoming a Registered Holistic Nutritionist.
Julia has just announced that Jules Fuel is now ready for Whistler's grocery store shelves. You can find the product stocked at Creekside Market, Purebread, Olive's Market and Quantum Vitamins. They will also be introduced at Nesters Market, Marketplace IGA and Alpine Market this month.
Julia's personally created blend of superfood ingredients include quinoa, goji berries, pumpkin, flax, and chia seeds. It is 100 per cent organic, vegan, low-glycemic, nutrient-dense, high fibre, antioxidant-rich, and, in her own words, "Purely Vitalicious."
There's no added sugar - in fact, each ingredient in the pouch comes in its raw form.
"This is a tasty breakfast option loaded with vitamins, minerals, and all nine essential amino acids that will invigorate you and give you the sustained energy you need for your day. I eat the fuel every day and I'm excited to get up in the morning because of it," says Julia.

Creekside's Coast Mountain Vet is happy to announce a new service. Petsites is a feature for clients to access important healthcare info for their pets.
Right now, visitors to the site are able see when their pets are due for important vaccines, health exams and blood screening all online, and there's also an app available for smart phones. It also has convenience features for pet owners with the ability to request food, appointments and prescription refills all online at their convenience, so if they remember they need something after the clinic is closed they can make the request right then and there.
If they're watching their pet's weight, it has all of their in-hospital weigh-ins available for comparison and a health-log they can keep should Dr. Kirby or Dr. Kirkham want them to track specific behaviours.
"Petsites is a new tool we're very excited to offer our clients," said Kirby."It's easy to get distracted with the hectic lives we live, so having the ability to access important healthcare reminders at their convenience will ensure they are up to date on everything their pet needs. We have received great feedback so far from clients that especially like the ability to request appointments online, any time of the day."
Clients will be receiving an email with their personal login information. Visit www.coastvet.com for more information.
