A true creative artist, Julie Piatt aka "SriMati" is a plant based chef, singer songwriter, spiritual guide, and mother to four. Julie has spent decades finding the divine in all her endeavors. Living from a deep place of devotion she experiences the presence of God: the conscious eternal flame in all life experiences, the seemingly light and dark, joyous and painful.

Through embracing a plant based diet, and simultaneously embarking on a deep meditation practice, "SriMati" healed herself of a large cyst in her neck, which doctors diagnosed as an incurable ailment. This experience gave her an intimate connection to food, and proved to her the miraculous ability of the body to heal itself when supported with pure whole living foods and a connection to the soul. Julie co- authored the best selling JAISEED online e-cookbook along side her husband, plant-based endurance athlete, and best selling author, Rich Roll. Together, they have created a best selling cookbook "THE PLANTPOWER WAY"; 120 recipes and lifestyle guidance released in 2015. Julie is a frequent guest on MindBodyGreen and The Rich Roll Podcast, where she shares her spiritual wisdom as an integral part of wellness, vitality, and vibrant health.
