When Jessica Vandenbroeke realized that Jackson residents were turning to those companies and having their daily doses of juice shipped hundreds of miles here, she decided to develop her own cleanse here in the Tetons.
Her company, Healthy Being, offers cleanses, nutrition coaching, food sensitivity exploration, corporate wellness retreats, fitness outings and classes. And what caught my eye recently at the Jackson Hole People’s Market?
If you’re anything like me, after you’re done making an 8-ounce green juice, your kitchen looks like your juicer exploded. Now Vandenbroeke will make them for you.
With pick-ups available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily at Inversion Yoga, juicing just got a whole lot easier.
She offers two options, 16 juices a month ($115) or 32 juices a month ($220). She also has vegan milk and juice cleanse packages. Check her Facebook page for a menu. Either use them as a part of Vandenbroeke’s cleanse programs, or add one to your daily diet. Juices last in the refrigerator for three days.
“Some people use them as their multivitamin,” she said.
They’re also great as a snack or as a meal supplement when on the go, she said.
Juices come in glass jars and a variety of flavors: beet, lime and cucumber; carrot, coconut, lime and ginger; and pineapple, kale and lime. Of course, there is the staple green juice with kale, collard greens, cucumber, parsley, celery, green apple and lemon.
Juices are made from organic products. They are all cold-pressed, meaning unlike most commercial juicers, there is not heating or oxidization involved during the juicing process. The raw produce is hydraulically pressed between two steel plates, which results in a live juice loaded with enzymes, vitamins and trace minerals.
Vandenbroeke pretty much grew up in Jackson and was a partner in Fine Dining Restaurant Group for years. In 2010 she attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York to become a certified health coach.
Since then she has continued to expand my nutrition knowledge, studying nutrition as medicine and raw food with Dr. Gabriel Cousines at the Tree of Life in Patagonia, Arizona; and various other programs focused on deepening her coaching skills.
