"This is what food is supposed to be like."
These are the words I felt reverberate through my body the first time I stepped into the farmer’s market at the ripe age of 19. I was in the early stages of my journey with food and wellbeing; shifting from processed products to more home cooked meals, slowly learning about the importance of opting into local (and organic) where I could and my eyes were being opened to natural approaches and solutions for modern day challenges (sleep issues, anxiety, depression, disconnection and the like).
I noticed that when I chose to consume foods that came from the earth, I felt nourished on a whole other level. My mood elevated, my energy levels improved, I had more motivation to tap into my creativity... simply put, I felt more connected not only to the beauty of the world, but also the light in me. My life felt more vibrant and full of possibility.
A deep part of me knew that when we connect with the earth and each other through food and heartfelt exchanges, love was the true nourishment that we shared. While I didn’t know it in the moment, that day at the farmer’s market -- and this lesson that it instilled in me -- changed my life.
A few years later, Vive came into being thanks to a small, yet successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, a few angels along the way and a nearly unbelievable amount of grit and grace. Never just a juice bar, Vive has been many things to many people. For nearly a decade, Vive has been a space to connect, to grow, to heal, to learn, to transform... and so much more.
Our mission has been to inspire ourselves and others to prioritize health and wellbeing by creating simple (and delicious) options that nourish our minds, spirits and bodies. To celebrate life by choosing what helps us feel alive.

Left unprocessed, Vive juice offers your cells every full living enzyme the plants have to give. While pressurizing our products would extend the shelf-life, we believe that quality is far more valuable than convenience. We preserve the purity of the plants - our greatest allies on the path of self-healing - to empower you from within.
Local + Organic First Ingredients
Here at Vive, our plants for your juice, groceries, and snacks are sourced locally first and organic whenever possible. We partner with local farmers to get seasonal produce according to Utah's growing abilities as well as give some of those "ugly" veggies a second chance that would otherwise get tossed at a grocery store. Our juice pulp gets donated back to the farmers to use as compost for soil making it the #CircleOfJuiceLife. We actively work towards finding and partnering with more certified organic sources, so we can continue to contribute to a happy life and a happy planet.
