We’re going to talk about her journey with food, how she’s built her business, and her best hacks for finding a personal chef for yourself.

Before finding out how food could transform her personal health issues Jenné was on antidepressants and struggling with chronic fatigue syndrome. She then went through a complete transformation and was able to reach her ideal body weight, transform her health and vitality all while on a shoestring budget.

After becoming a vegetarian Jenné had noticeably more energy. Previously she struggled with severe lethargy and had to drink multiple shots of espresso, coke zero and caffeine every day.


Along the way Jenné started her own food blog - Sweet Potato Soul.

We talk about how to take your hobby on the side and the slow steps you can take toward becoming an entrepreneur.

Your brand can be just YOU. Your sense of style and the way you look at your product, business - needs to be visually engaging. Enhance your business by better marketing YOU and who YOU are so your consumers/followers can better engage with you.

Truly upgrade your performance through a vegan lifestyle. We talk about how to have the benefits of good food without spending 50 hours a week in the kitchen.

Fresh Vegetable HackBuy a bunch of greens - to keep them fresher 2-3x longer you can either cook them right away or stick them in a jar of water and cover it with plastic. keep them fresh for longer (either cook them right away) or stick them in a jar of water and cover it with plastic!

How to Keep It Simple While Eating Healthy

A look into Jenné’s everyday favorites: fresh cooked beans or lentils (canned is good too) a grain - quinoa or brown rice, some sort of green like kale or spinach chop it up into really small pieces or throw it into the food processor with the beans or lentils and it makes a sort of hummus on top of the grain. Top it off with kimchi, drizzle of tahini or avocado and you have a meal that shouldn’t take more than 5-10 mins or prep time full of nutrients.

Always keep things prepared in your refrigerator and pantry - Cook everything at the same time to save time.

Develop a love for whole food plant based diet - all natural foods we are intended to it versus foods we are not meant to eat - Food is literally communication. When you put bad food into your body you are giving your body bad messages which causes toxic gene expression, good food can shift your gene expression - Energy boosting high performing genes.
