Shine Restaurant & Gathering Place in Boulder Colorado is owned by triplet sisters, Jennifer, Jill and Jessica Emich. It celebrates the Boulder experience and strives to keep the community alive and thriving with their dishes. The sisters serve up plates of high-vibrational Paleo, vegan and vegetarian, farm-to-table comfort food made in a 100% Gluten-Free and GMO-Free kitchen.
Shine also serves up award-winning beer from Shine Brewing Co., one of the few women owned breweries in the US, along with their hand-crafted healing Shine Potions. You can follow Shine Boulder and Jill on Instagram, and Facebook. They have a cookbook Eat.Drink.Shine coming out the end of April through Kyle Publishing. Check out their Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb with Parsnip Fries Recipe here.
Here’s an interview we did with Jill so you can find out more about them:
1. What got you interested in the Paleo lifestyle?
Jill Emich: I learned about Paleo around 5 years ago while teaching holistic nutrition classes—diving into different diets that were taking hold around the country. Paleo made sense to me and intrigued me. Although I was never a dieter, Paleo was different. It was more of a way of living and I was down to give it a whirl. I am pretty active in my day-to-day life. I try to exercise most days and am usually running around in the restaurant. I eat Paleo about 80% of the time. I am not strict but dedicated and by eating this way I feel better than I ever have. I feel energized, I sleep better, I am leaner and because of this I can participate more fully in my life.
