When you’ve known someone as long as I have known this wonderful woman you always be proud of the amazing things they do. Jax Fanucci is a yoga loving, vegan eating, always smiling, beautiful human who has been through a lot in the past few years.
Today she speaks to me about battling her eating disorder, living a vegan life and staying on the recovery track, she talks openly about her life over the last few years and offers advice to others.
Her passion for a healthy and happy life is infectious, her knowledge about food, wellness and fitness knows no bounds.
As we sipped on our coffee – her one addictive vice (but it’s a bean and it comes from the earth so it’s okay – her words not mine) we put the world to right. We discussed our own battles with food, the fads we see people buying into every day, we talked about our high school days and the little help we got from some of the people who were supposed to be caring for us.
When we really thought about it we realised that the teachers at our school could have done so much more for us; when you see two happy girls who are social, outgoing and full of life suddenly become recluse, isolated and quiet surely that should trigger questions to be asked.
Jax’s struggle is proof of what words can do, throw away comments from the mean girls of your high school, how they can worm their way into your mind and nibble away at your confidence and sanity. Though her recovery and progress is a testament to her strength and her unquestionable determination, this is a woman who owned her demons, faced them head on and came out on top.
Having been a unwavering vegan for over a decade this should be your go to woman if you want to change your lifestyle, her down to earth approach is realistic and her intentions are nothing but good. Her aim in life is to educate and guide others to find a way to become their best self, encourage mindfulness and a deep love for every single day as well as teaching people to eat intuitively and listen to their bodies.
Jax and I went to the same high school, we swam together and we went through a lot together; over the years we have dipped in and out of each others lives as other things got in the way but never once was there a moment where either of us felt the other wasn’t there for us. We have a strong bond, we see eye to eye on a lot and I can say from the bottom of my heart that I could not be prouder of this woman.
You can often find Jax stretching and bending on the beach in the early mornings, teaching yoga classes during the week and working away in between. If you want to see more about this wonderful woman check out her social channels and make sure to follow, like and subscribe!
