Thirteen years ago Jill Skeem attended a $10 lecture which changed her life! It was “Intro to Asian Diagnosis” and from that moment she started studying food and its effects on the body, plus the topic of macrobiotics. She became a certified macrobiotic health counselor, met her Idaho husband, and moved to Idaho.
Living in dairy, meat and potato country, people wanted to eat healthier but needed advice on how to do so. Jill wrote the well-received cookbook, Comfort Food Gets a Vegan Makeover, to help people make over the foods they love so they can still enjoy their favorites, but without the saturated fat and cholesterol.
Jill Skeem is a certified macrobiotic health counselor, educator and chef. She graduated from the Strengthening Health Institute, a premier macrobiotic educational facility in Philadelphia, PA, and is also a graduate from The Ohio State University.
Jill teaches adult and children’s cooking classes. She lectures to companies and organizations on health and wellness, was a contributing writer to her local paper and various publications. She appears regularly on regional television and radio shows discussing healthy eating and demonstrating recipes.
Jill co-hosted on News Radio 1310’s Top Story, a local radio talk show and Fox News affiliate in Twin Falls, ID for six years.
