Transformational speaker, author and educator Deborah C. Smith is a graduate of the renown Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Deborah’s mission to support people in living their healthiest life is inspired by her own health and wellness journey. She began her education in plant-based nutrition in 2005 as a result of feeling stuck and not connected to her own body. “I was tired all the time and cranky, feeling bloated and weighed down by the trappings of my ‘standard American’ diet and exercise routine. While I wasn’t sick necessarily, I was depressed and sugar addicted. I was unmotivated at work and too exhausted to accomplish anything outside of work. I needed support to overcome my unhealthy habits and become unstuck.”
In the Spring of 2006 Deborah received a degree in holistic nutrition and Green Pirate Juice was born. Since that day, the company has proudly served thousands of New Yorkers the healthiest and freshest plant-based beverages and foods and has provided education and coaching services to hundreds of companies and private clients. Deborah's workshops and blog are inspired by her own goal of finding balance in life, while keeping it juicy and full of healthy choices. The story of the Juice Truck and her 12 years of running a mobile food vending business in NYC are incorporated into the forthcoming book, My Green Revolution, due out in the Fall of 2019.
