Hi! I’m Jennifer Gabel. My mission is to teach you how to live a life full of energy, love and vibrant health through nutrition. If you’re struggling to make sustainable changes to improve your health, you’ve come to the right place.
Who I am today
Like you, I wear so many hats. I have two incredible children and an amazing partner. I’m the owner of JK Crane, a crane rental company based in New Jersey. In 2021, I founded Construct Your Health, a wellness company targeted to the construction industry. I’m certified as an integrative nutrition health coach through the Integrative Institute for Nutrition and obtained my 500-hour yoga teacher certification thanks to NJ Yoga Teacher Training and JaiPure Yoga. In my everyday life, I nourish my body with a mostly plant-based diet and long walks with my dog. I love to read, especially fantasy or romance novels (#noshame), and I thrive on a mixture of alone time and quality time with loved ones. I also love to travel and experience new cultures, especially when it comes to food.
How did I get here?
In college, I became sick with reactive hypoglycemia and pre-diabetes. I had high cholesterol and chronic headaches on top of adult acne and recurring panic attacks. Every doctor dismissed me with a prescription, but there was a voice inside of me urging me to find a different way.
I had to take a hard look at what I was eating, and it wasn’t pretty. Think lots of processed food and tons of sugar (not to mention this was college, so alcohol was basically a food group). My first step to healing came through discovering what nourished my body best, a dynamic process that continues to evolve with me. My next step came through movement. I used to joke I was “allergic” to the gym. When an on-call doctor with an integrative approach to medicine recommended I go back to yoga to cure my headaches, I experienced a true understanding of how physical movement isn’t just to look good in a bikini for spring break.
Having children while running a business wreaked havoc on my hormones and body. This marked a new chapter for me, one where I had to dig deep to better understand how to heal – and stay healed. Then something incredible happened during this healing process. I discovered more energy than I’d ever known, while feeling the best in my body I’ve ever felt.
I’m here to help you.
It’s been eighteen years since I first took the reins on my health and decided to do better. I’ve gotten an incredible education on this journey, with some missteps along the way, and I know it’s so I could share what I’ve learned with others to help them heal.
