We had the good fortune of connecting with Jennifer DuPree and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jennifer, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I started on my meal prep business venture due to my weighloss surgery I’m 2016 with Dr. Tuggle at Peachtree Bariatrics. I wanted to change my life to become healthier and more active ..I started at 310lb and lost a total of 127 my first year out of surgery with the vertices sleeve. I noticed a lot of individuals were having this procedure , end up gaining majority of there weight back due to poor nutrition and food choices. So I started off meal prepping for kicks and giggles. Many of friends on my Facebook suggested I should really start meal prepping. I was hesitate. I started taking my heath seriously after being injured from a torn ligament in my knee back in 2021.
I had time to look and research about food, how it inflames your body , looking into different seasoning, oils and spices to prepare food.. So while I was healingng physically, I wanted to heal my body in the inside so I can be better.
