I am speaking with the lovely Rowena Jayne, aka The Real Food Yogi. She is the New Age quadruple threat: yoga teacher, raw food chef, author and naturopath trained in Ayurvedic medicine. She wasn’t born with a biodegradable spoon in her mouth; she has a past, a life before, that wasn’t so fresh and natural. I ask her to describe herself before she found her path.
“I wasn’t in a good way. My mind wasn’t grounded; I had arthritis. I had an eating disorder. I wasn’t social – I’d shut myself off from the world in a lot of ways. And when I was social it was like this big facade. I wasn’t well in my mind. When you have an eating disorder there are body issues, self-esteem issues, all that stuff.”
