An advocate for farm fresh foods and sustainable agriculture, Jennifer McGruther believes that food is something worthy of celebration. Alongside her husband, Jennifer has nurtured and grown a local foodshed, connecting small family farms with an eager customer base through their farmers market. Together they created and manage a lively, progressive farmers market in the heart of Colorado ski country that nourishes their community. With an unshakable belief that everyone deserves access to high-quality, nutrient-dense foods, they have spearheaded programs that provide free food to low-income residents of their community and steadily supply their community’s food bank with wholesome, sustainably-grown local foods. Real food takes real work. And it’s worth it.
A labor of love, her site Nourished Kitchen’s goal is to promote sustainable agriculture and nutrient-dense, whole foods in everyday kitchens. The focus here is on whole, unrefined foods prepared according to traditional methods that optimize nutrient density. Cherish your body, nourish your kitchen.
