Stephen and Kate Miller talk about the concept of nutrient dense foods and attempt to answer the question, “Is food what they say it is?”

In today’s world, you choose to eat healthy and you show up at the grocery store to pick-up fruits and vegetables.  But are items really food? Is the genetically modified tomato as good as the non-gmo, organic, locally grown tomato?  This and other questions around the concept of nutrient dense foods and the quality of food sources are covered.  For the complete interview, visit here.

Bio on Kate Miller: Food has long been a focus in Kate’s life, and she has worked in numerous kitchens and dining rooms in the US and Europe. Concerns about the quality of factory farmed food and social justice issues inherent in modern agriculture led to deeper involvement in the production end of our food supply. In 2010, after completing her M.A. and spending 6 months in India under the tutelage of organic food activist Dr. Vandana Shiva, Kate took a leap and began growing vegetables and herbs organically at Weathertop Farm. Every season is an adventure, and since that time we have added pork, chicken, and fruit production as well as a line of foraged foods through our business Wild Foraged. Foraging has been the natural progression in this journey to produce and share local, healthy foods with our community. Kate believes that wild foods, including wild medicinals, should play a distinct role in every person’s quest for a healthy and happy balanced lifestyle.
