At The Chef’s Garden, you never have to choose between foods bursting with sweetness and flavor and those that are very good for your health. Our fresh vegetables and herbs, microgreens and more are incredibly flavorful, visually appealing and brimming with nutrition. Healthy eating can, indeed, be a treat for the palate and on the plate. Why? We start with healthy soil and plant our crops in harmony with nature. As they take in the sun’s vibrant rays, they are chock full of vitamins and minerals. Healthy soil = healthy plants = healthy food for people. And, here’s one more equation: farmacy = you can have it all!The Chef’s Garden brings you boxes of flavorful, farm-fresh vegetables, chock full of nutrition. Because we farm in harmony with Mother Nature, specifics of what’s in a box will vary by season, but you can always count on receiving the best of the day’s harvest. The detoxification box, for example, will include delicious choices that improve digestion while also supporting liver, gallbladder and bowel health—while the anti-aging box will include selections that help to reduce inflammation in your body while promoting skin integrity. There’s also a box with fresh vegetables chosen to support optimal health for you and your family.
When you think of farmacy, it’s our flavorful fresh vegetables, herbs and microgreens that will likely come to mind first. And, you’re right. They’re an excellent source of nutrition. But, don’t forget about dried, pickled and fermented vegetables, because they’re another quality source of vitamins and minerals, with experts focusing more and more on fermented foods for gut health, from pickles to sauerkraut and more.
We focused on fermentation ourselves at our Roots 2015 culinary conference (here is a report on that presentation) and the Culinary Vegetable Institute team is on the cutting edge of experimenting with presenting the most delicious and nutritious dried, pickled and fermented vegetables possible.
