Meet Jen Hansard
I know the impact food can have on your body, your health and your dreams. Before switching to a plant-based diet, I felt exhausted, stressed-out and frustrated with my body.
I made a commitment to put food in my body that would allow me to go after the things that mattered to me. I wanted to be an active mom, passionate wife and adventurous friend, so I committed to making my health a priority without sacrificing my sanity.
Embracing nutrient-dense whole foods with quick, tasty recipes gave me the vitality to do more than just survive each day. I was finally able to live out dreams that had been long buried due to stress, exhaustion and body that couldn't support my dreams.
Through my journey came my mission to help others “fuel their passion.”
My dreams became my reality
By embracing delicious plant-powered recipes, I was able to tap into the energy and strength inside me and go after the things that matter most to me. Who you are today, can be someone different tomorrow if you hold onto that hope and start taking steps towards your goals.
Learned to Fly a Plane

I spent months taking flying lessons and loved every moment I spent in the sky.

How it all began...
Simple Green Smoothies is a company I co-founded with my friend, Jadah Sellner, in 2013. For a few years, we rawked the food blogger space together. In 2016, Jadah stepped away to focus on her own passion. While my passion remained at Simple Green Smoothies, I chose to continue to grow and expand it into a business that impacts the lives of millions each year.
