FOUNDER| EXECUTIVE OF AWESOME| CHEF (AFRICAN BIO MINERAL BALANCE ADVOCATE)

I was fat just 7 years ago. Which was a shock to this former high school life guard. Like many out there, I was addicted to sugar. While visiting a friend, I was introduced to juicing and after that first cup, I was hooked. Freeing my body of toxins and creating juices for my friends and family was just the kick I needed to drop the pounds of fat..and sorrow.

After being asked to create juices for a major barbershop in my Californian neighborhood, I had a eureka moment. Could it be possible for me to create a company that made juices with love and help others in the same position I had been in? On that day, Juice Hugger was born.

I put fear aside and jumped on a plane to New York in 2009 to start Juice Hugger with my childhood sweetheart . 7 years later and almost 60 pounds lighter I feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude every time someone tells me how much our Brooklyn Cafe (Juice Hugger’s A Healthy Crush) changed their life by introducing them to detoxing, healthier food selections, or through the consultations we provided to our customers.

We are entering the next phase of our business with the close of our Brooklyn cafe in October 2015. We have officially renamed our company A Healthy Crush to incorporate all the various elements of our business. This year we launched our Alive Tonic (which is an aid to auto intoxication relief). We independently published our guide, Mucus Free Food Detox, which offers step by step instructions on how to eat using Dr. Sebi’s Nutritional Guide. Following our guide, we also published our cookbook, Beyond Vegan, the start of a series of cookbooks focused on alkaline non hybrid food creation.  Not to mention, our workshops, cooking classes and online coaching class How to Eat to Live starting this fall. Man, I’m so excited for what the rest of 2016 has in store.

OWNER | LIFESTYLE/BRAND ARCHITECT|                           AFRICAN BIO MINERAL BALANCE ADVOCATE

The evolution of our brand truly represents how we have evolved in our own healthy journey. After consulting clients for over 5 years in various ways to detox their bodies from toxin overload, I realized (even though I cleansed regularly) that my body suffered from leaky gut and severe joint pain due to sugar, yeast and a lack of minerals.

After following the Blood Type Diet, Paleo, Vegetarian and then Vegan food regimes – yet not feeling a balanced sense of wellness, we explored Dr. Sebi’s Nutritional Guide..and within days my joint pain, constipation, adult acne, and inflammation started to dissipate. It made me feel reinspired as a Lifestyle Coach because I have “been there and done that” and understand the ups and downs of the journey.

After closing our Brooklyn Cafe in October 2015, we were free to have a company rebirth. We decided to create a guide to educate people on how to create meals using ingredients that compliment the body’s self healing process called the Mucus Free Food Detox as well as a cookbook series Beyond Vegan, which highlights, simple, tasty recipes for those looking to “eat clean”. We have also developed a platform called How To Eat To Live which offers workshops, cooking classes and a 8 week and 4 week online coaching program. Instead of focusing on Brooklyn, we have opened our brand up to the world – with orders from Australia, Japan, Europe, and the Caribbean – I am truly grateful to be a catalyst for people looking to become their healthiest self.

If you have any questions about our books, workshops, or online coaching course, feel free to email me directly at keelo@juicehugger.com. Or follow me on Instagram at A Healthy Crush!  Remember  – “You don’t have to change the menu, just change the ingredients!”
