Detox Chef Jennifer Houst
Chef Jennifer Houst (Aka “Detox Jenny”) has been a California Fusion private chef for over 20 years. Her cuisine is inspired by fresh- off-the-vine Californian ingredients; truly gut-nourishing foods that hold the power to transform poor digestion and reinvigorate the body.
While she traveled the world as a private chef on luxury yachts for seven years, cooking for the elite, she ate a lot of rich food and worked extremely long hours. In fact, living such a demanding lifestyle led her to acquire adrenal fatigue, chronic back pain and IBS by the age of 33. Severe adrenal fatigue brought this whiz in the kitchen to her knees and ultimately required her to rethink her passion as a chef. Could working in the kitchen be too much for her now ailing body?
In 2010, with her desire to transform her poor health fresh in her sights, she headed to mount Shasta with her best friend from UC Berkeley (Ellie Lara) to embark on their very first juice cleanse. This 10-day cleanse would spark the creation of Earthly Juices and mark the beginning of “Detox Jenny’s” return to health. Over the next 10 years these BFFs would transform the health of over 15,000 people with their unique system of enzyme-rich living foods and juices that they developed into Earthly Juices’ cleanses.
Detox Jenny currently finds great pleasure in guiding people through superfood transformations and custom juice cleanses. Her latest passions include interviewing wholistic practitioners on her podcast, the Earthly Dish Radioshow, creating Superfood Recipe Videos, and Web Content for her followers to utilize in their own wellness transformations. She is the mother of a wonderful 3-year old boy named Ember who lights up her life.
Detox Counselor Ellie Lara
Detox Counselor Ellie Lara is a dedicated health and wellness professional with a background that includes a masters degree in Marriage and Family Counseling and Depth Psychology from the Pacifica Institute. She cofounded Earthly Juices along with chef Jennifer Houst to transform humanity one healthy juice at a time.
With Ellie’s background in psychology and her own pursuit of health and wellness, she finds great enjoyment in working with people as a health educator, counselor, and food coach. Ellie’s focus is establishing the connection between what we eat and how we feel in our bodies. She believes strongly in the power of living juices and gut-nourishing foods as the simplest means for detoxifying the body, and thus, transforming the mind and spirit.
Ellie inspires others to live a powerful, positive, eco-aware lifestyle by demonstrating new healthy eating habits and by documenting her original superfood recipes in short videos and Instagram posts. Over the years, her outreach has gained a sizeable following. She is a mother of a beautiful 6-year girl named Lila, who is the love of her life. Her newest interest is educating women on the specific foods they should eat to balance hormones through crucial life-stages, such as pregnancy and menopause.
