At Juicy Kitchen our mission is to nurture people with healthy, creative, flavorful food prepared with love, through our cafe, prepared meals to-go & custom catering.
About The Owner, Susan
I attended the Schoolcraft College Culinary Arts program in 1995, and have been in the fitness industry since 2003, catering for fun along the way. Before owning and operating Juicy Kitchen, I was a Personal Trainer and am still a Spinning instructor at Vie Fitness & Spa. I also provide them with their Spa Salads each day.
I know that delicious, creative, flavorful food can also be healthy, and that eating healthy food consistently strengthens the immune system and contributes to every aspect of good health. Along with exercise, a healthy diet is the best fountain of youth! I have found that as you begin to eat healthier on a consistent basis, you no longer crave sugary, fatty, starchy foods, but instead want foods that make you feel good and benefit your health.
What We Cook
We love cooking with lots of fresh vegetables, leaning toward what’s local and in season, and we offer vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. We love beans and whole grains, leafy greens and fresh fruit, and offer lean proteins like seafood, chicken breasts, turkey sausage & lean beef. We occasionally use small of amounts of pancetta, prosciutto and chorizo to flavor dishes for non-vegetarians. At Juicy Kitchen we consider ourselves healthy foodies!
We use locally sourced produce whenever we can, our chicken is hormone free, and we use organic vegetables and grains when feasible. We make our own vegetable stock for our soups, shop the Farmer’s Market, use produce from our farmer friends right down the road, and most everything is cooked from scratch. All of are baked goods are made with whole grains and natural sweeteners, like ripe bananas, and they just happen to be vegan too!
We source many of our ingredients from Sienna Prairie Farm, Tantre Farm, Goetz Farm, Calder's Dairy, Grazing Fields (eggs), Mighty Good (coffee) and Avalon Bakery (bread)
We cook for our customers as we cook for our families - with love!
