Jen’s Jars is an endeavor to help others see that a clean, plant-based diet is not only healing, but delicious too! In Spring of 2014 owner Jennifer Alexander began struggling with her physical and mental health. Inspired by her mother-in-law, who conquered breast cancer through diet and lifestyle change, Jen decided it was time to make a drastic personal change as well.
Already a vegetarian, Jen went cold turkey and cut out everything else from her diet that could be causing my health problems. She “quit” dairy, gluten, refined sugar, and any sort of preservatives and decided to adopt a whole food, plant-based diet and eliminate anything highly processed.
Jen began experimenting with cooking, substituting plant-based ingredients in some of my favorite comfort foods and creating many new recipes from scratch. She found that the foods she was creating from whole, unprocessed ingredients were even more flavorful than the foods she had been eating in the past and soon found it easier to maintain a healthy weight for my body, had more energy and felt generally more balanced and clear-minded.
Jen created Jen’s Jars to make nutrient-rich foods more accessible to everyone – whether you’re struggling with food sensitivities or simply wanting to incorporate more whole foods into your diet.
Clean eating doesn’t have to mean compromising on flavor or spending more time in the kitchen. All of Jen’s Jars soups and spreads are made from scratch using high-quality, organic ingredients, that require minimal to no prep time. Whether or not you decide to completely adopt a diet of whole and unprocessed foods, every meal counts towards a healthier and more balanced life.
