About Julie Stafford
Julie Stafford is best known for changing a generation's eating habits through the 80’s and 90’s with her 'Taste of Life' healthy-eating cookbooks. Her life-changing direction from art teacher and farmer's wife to healthy-eating guru began after husband Bruce, age 30, was diagnosed with life-threatening Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Julie researched the link between diet and disease and how diet could rebuild Bruce's immune system. Her research became Australia's biggest and fastest-selling cookbook. Her first book, 'Taste of Life', sold a record 1.2 million copies in Australia, New Zealand, UK and USA. Over the next 18 years, Julie wrote 22 more cookbooks (all best-sellers). Best of all, a little over a year after his diagnosis, Bruce beat his cancer odds, living unaffected by his brush with life-threatening cancer for more than 22 years. The couple have two children, Timothy and Cais.
Julie became a much sought after presenter at national food and lifestyle exhibitions; and was a regular television presenter, teaching healthy eating. She also pioneered, with food and appliance manufacturers, new food products and kitchen appliances for a new health conscious audience.
Easily stepping from cookbook writing to motivation, Julie's best-selling motivational title, 'Stepping Out' put her on the lucrative speaker's circuit where she fast earned a reputation for challenging audiences to embrace change, pursue passions, and to not let a life be defined by circumstance. A respected communicator, her audiences have been as large as five thousand and as intimate as five.
