Two real food bloggers have been nominated for a prestiguous national award from FoodBuzz.com. Jenny McGruther of Crested Butte, Colorado and Kristen Michaelis of Leander, Texas. They are both Weston A. Price Foundation members and are featured contributors to the FoodBuzz.
Jenny and her husband created and manage the Crested Butte local farmers market and work closely with farmers and the community on developing farm to consumer marketing such as CSAs, community kitchens and gardens, dining co-operatives as well as programs for low-income residents like WIC to market and farmers market foodbanking. Her blog is simply beautiful. Her page designs and photography are quite artistic. Her tag line for The Nourished Kitchen is “Where Eating Gets Political”. Her style is exquisite that shows her passion for sustainable farming and real food. And, boy, does she have a huge library of recipes. You can see for yourself at the The Nourished Kitchen.
Annie and I have followed both for over a year, off and on, and from our beginning have made both special links of the Journal.
Jenny says she was tickled by the nomination: “I share that distinction with four other fantastic bloggers each of whom touches on the issues surrounding real, sustainable and here and don’t forget to visit all the sites before casting your vote.”. You can view the full list of nominations in several categories
Another favorite is The Food Renegade and Kristen Michaelis, who we featured before, Kristen says:
“I am a rebel. I like to eat red meat. I think butter is good for me. I drink my milk raw. I avoid pre-packaged foods like the plague. I don’t believe the health claims on food labels. And, I like my food to be fresh, wholesome, and traditional. I’m a wife, a mother, a copywriter, a nutrition & wellness coach, and a passionate advocate for what I call “real food” — as opposed to the edible food-like substances which dominate America’s food industry today.”
She has old-style cooking recipes for all the food groups. Kristen explains: “The diet dictocrats in Washington are in the pocket of mammoth agribusinesses, and they’ve confounded and confused the American public long enough. I want to empower people to choose wholesome, healthy, traditional foods — pastured meats and dairy products, organic vegetables, soaked or sprouted grains, fermented vegetables and beverages, and bone broths.”
Here are three other nominees which are also quite talented and most interesting. I hope you will peruse these sites and vote for one of them.
I hope you will enjoy each of these highly praised food blogs.
Voting Ends on October 29, 2009.
