You may have seen her at one of the local Nourishing Ways meetings, or read her blog at http://kellythekitchenkop.com. She’s Kelly the Kitchen Kop, and she’s busting “politically correct” health and nutrition information.
1. How did you get started on your real food journey?
My favorite place to buy local meats is Creswick Farms – I also know these farmers and they know what they’re doing! Their animals are all pasture raised and not fed any of the junk that conventional farms put in their feed. I visit their farm in my Rookie class and Nathan gives a tour. 🙂
We get our local, seasonal nutrient-packed produce at Earthkeeper Farm, they are friends and come to our Rockford farm market. I’ve visited their farm for my Rookie class, too, and you’ll find out how knowledgeable they are about raising nutrient-dense food.
Notice that I love getting to know my local food producers, and this is very important when trying to find the best quality foods to nourish yourself and your family. Don’t be afraid to ask them questions, most love to talk about their farm and will even encourage you to visit!
