How Just BE Kitchen Came to Be

Jennifer decided to open Just BE Kitchen because she was searching for a way to close the gap between who she was and what she did. In fact, she wanted to fulfill her life’s purpose and fully stand in her light so others could do the same. And for her, that meant focusing on the joy that food can bring – not just any food, but truly nourishing & satisfying food. And she wanted to do this by creating a space of BElonging & connection where everyone could feel cared for, nourished & experience joy around food that is void of allergens and inflammatory properties. Listen in to hear more about Jennifer’s journey, her advice for small business owners, and why she is so passionate about nutrition.
