Meet our Wellness Experts!


Joe Benevento “Food guy!”

After over twenty years working in the restaurant industry, spending time locally at spots including Tart Bistro, Cork, Zydeco, Mother’s and Tetherow, Joe decided that it was time to focus his attention on wellness matters. While he did spend years working in the healthy food realm, the time had come to focus on the healing side of food and food as medicine. The founding of Dropping Beets in April 2018 gave Joe the vehicle to help the good people of Central Oregon directly. Not only as an accomplished chef, but also as a certified exercise nutrition coach, Joe is equipped to help you approach the topic of food from a variety of angles.

What can Joe do for you?

Well, he can cook for you. But, there are a many people who can do that. He can also help you make peace with your plate, or teach you how to prepare your plate, or even give you the tools to help improve your plate. Do you ever feel like your kitchen is mocking you? Joe understands the struggle, and can help you make friends with your stove again. In today’s world, eating has become such a complicated issue that even knowing what to cook can be a challenge.

But, have no fear. We’ve got you. No matter what your dietary needs are, or your level of savvy in the kitchen, he’s got you covered. Your wellness is his concern. If your pantry needs organizing, or maybe it’s just your eating that needs an overhaul. Either way, don’t you worry none, because the time has come to bring the spirit of Namaste to the center of your home. Elevate your plate and lift your state. You’ll feel great!
