168: Kerry Audisho on Locally Grown Foods
Connecting a community to a healthier diet and access to locally grown foods.
Kerry is a wife, mother, certified Dr. Sears health coach, local food advocate, and lover of food growing. She spends her time visiting various farms and gardens in and around Phoenix, and connecting consumers directly to local growers.
She organizes three Meetup groups, Your Farm Foods, Arizona Natural Food Group and Food as Medicine.
She blogs at yourfarmfoods.com and has created an online open marketplace, friendingfarmers.com that allows users to buy, sell and share our locally grown foods.
IN THIS PODCAST: Greg talks with Kerry to find out why she is so committed to helping others improve their diets and connect with locally grown foods. Kerry shares the story of her conversion to healthy foods and then how even that diet was improved after a trip to a restaurant with a friend. Her experience giving up sugar is a startling one. She also explains how she started her meet-up group to help her community connect with locally grown foods.
