Welcome! This is a forum for people to learn and to share their knowledge about sustainable farming practices, health, and nutrition. You’ll find articles about what organic certification means (and doesn’t mean), the many and varied benefits of buying and eating local foods, and a broad array of topics on how our food choices directly affect our health—the health of our bodies, our families, our communities, and the environment.
I am a certified Integrative Nutrition health coach, and I am excited to share all that I continue to learn at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition by answering your questions here about food and health. Personally, I turned my attention to eating healthy 10 years ago, and it was truly life changing. My husband, Paul, and I have 6-year-old twins who have been raised exclusively on pure, whole organic foods, and it shows in their health and vitality!
This blog will feature insights and commentary from members of our Profeta Farms family, including my husband, Paul Profeta, and our co-founder, John Place. We hope that you will add your voice here as well, and share with us any questions that you would like us to address in this space. If there is a topic that you would like to learn more about, please use the button below to send me your suggestion or question, and we will do our best to answer it in an article or a post here.
We will be so happy if we can help you achieve greater health, productivity, and happiness through your food choices, wherever you get your food. And if you are in the area, please stop by and see what we are doing on the farm!
Welcome, and thank you for joining!
