Our Founder

Judine Mullen



In 2013, I was diagnosed with stage 2 triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). This type is a more aggressive type of breast cancer- not fueled by the hormones estrogen and progesterone or the HER2 protein, and it does not respond to hormone therapy and is more likely to recur after treatment. 

After my diagnosis, the impact of food's nutritional value became more paramount to my everyday life, as there was no medication to reduce my risk of a recurrence after I completed treatment. Instead of after-treatment hormone therapy medication, my doctors emphasized the importance of diet and exercise to help maintain my health during remission and beyond. 

My diet is a key component in maintaining my health, and I struggled with the market's lack of clean and great-tasting plant-based snacks. Drawing on my experience as a trained chef and my love for whole foods, I was inspired to create nutritious, easy-to-digest snacks that could help keep me feeling healthy and energized throughout the day. After creating a variety of wholesome, delicious, plant-based snacks, I founded Just Judine, and it's been an incredibly fulfilling process.

As someone with a sensitive digestive system (even before having cancer), I sincerely believe a highly functioning digestive system is integral to our overall health. 

I hope you enjoy our products as a tasty way to stay healthy and energized!
