Jessica Gore

Jessica Gore holds a degree in biology and has a lifelong love of all things botanical, with a special fondness for organic gardening principles and heirloom plants. She currently resides on a work-in-progress hobby farm, where she continues to battle the Northern Ontario climate and search for cold hardy fruit trees.

Raised on a small farm in Middle of Nowhere, Canada, she can still remember her shock when she first learned the origins of most grocery store food. The pursuit of an organic lifestyle seemed the natural response to such atrocity, and she now lives on a hobby farm eerily similar to her childhood home. With a degree in biology and an organic garden, she is hoping to pass on her tree-hugging ideals to her own children.

Jessica Gore has been an environmentalist for as long as she can remember. Even as a small child, she was known to chastise her mother for the use of plastic wrap, and to interrogate fur-wearing adults about their choices. She has hopefully become less obnoxious about her convictions over time.

Diet and Nutrition

Jessica Gore has been studying diet and nutrition for nearly 15 years. Her interest began with the desire to have a healthy first pregnancy, and continued with the desire to lose the 80 lbs gained during that pregnancy. Today, a mother of three, Jessica is a personal trainer and biologist. She lives in Ontario, Canada, and continues to explore the many complex ways in which foods influence human health.

As a biologist with a fascination for the human body and its systems, Jessica has spent nearly fifteen years independently researching various aspects of human physiology and nutrition. Gluten intolerance and its association with human evolutionary biology have been of particular interest, and she continues to follow scientific studies investigating this puzzling condition.

Exercise

Jessica Gore began exercising after the birth of her first child in 1995, in an attempt to shed excess weight put on during pregnancy. She was instantly hooked, and began to research the scientific principles behind physical fitness. Her fascination with exercise physiology and biomechanics led her to pursue personal trainer certification in 2003, followed by a degree in biology in 2004. Today, she maintains a regular fitness program for both physical and emotional health, and continues to be amazed at the workings of the human body.
