The heart of who I am!
My name is Denise Thibodeau. I am a daughter, a sister, a wife and a mother of two beautiful children. I am also, a successful business woman. I enjoy time in the backyard with my family and our energetic, cuddly, goofy, chocolate lab.
If there is one thing you should know about me, it is my deep love for the kitchen. I believe it is the heart of every home and it is where my most fond memories and feelings stem from. My hope with this website is to inspire that passion in you. I want to help people reconnect, not only with their food but with their loved ones. Let’s bring everyone back to the dinner table.
I would like to take a few minutes to tell you the back story that led me to creating this website right now. We will start in 2005, I had a great Engineering position designing Digger Derricks and Aerials (big trucks), I loved my job! I worked hard, and as a young mom I thought I had it all. Until I got sick and was plagued with severe migraines that were taking me down.
Finally, after years of ongoing headaches I decided to quit my job. I needed to figure out why I was always so sick. This is when I started investigating what was triggering my episodes.
Taking the time to look at what I was eating wasn’t a common thing to do back in 2005, but it is where I decided to start. At the time, I used a lot of grocery store jarred sauces, packages and pre-blended seasonings.
I began reading labels and paying attention to what I was eating. This was the key to figuring out what was causing my illness. Within a short period of time I discovered the nasty ingredient that was causing my headaches, it was…. MSG, which is in almost EVERYTHING! It turns out that I am allergic to MSG.
This discovery was the beginning of my life changing in so many ways.
I had to learn how to cook using only clean ingredients that were pure and safe. Which pretty much meant bland, bland, bland!… That is, until I discovered Epicure! A company that is dedicated to inspired clean eating without sacrificing flavour! I was able to cook clean, healthy, safe meals for myself and my family and still get the “thumbs up” of approval from my husband! YAY!
This discovery transformed my life and I am so grateful for my friend Krista who introduced me to this incredible opportunity.
Because of Epicure, my life and my family’s life is pretty rewarding. I have a thriving business that allows me time, freedom, flexibility and a great income while making a huge difference in people’s lives. I am passionate about clean eating and I love that I have an opportunity to help others earn extra income, start a business working from home and learn to take back their plates with inspired clean eating cooking classes!
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about my life and my mission. If you are wanting to learn more about this business or experience Epicure for yourself, please contact me anytime.
Cheers to Good Food and a Great Life.
