HandPicked People: Jill (the Real Food Forager)

HandPicked Nation

HandPicked Nation › HandPicked Nation intends to provide a place for people interested in food to gather, connect and ...


As we've built up our community here at HandPicked Nation, we have met some truly incredible farmers, ranchers, makers and thinkers in the real food movement. Which prompted the thought, why not share a little more about the real people of real food with our readers?

Welcome to another addition of HandPicked People!

We're hearing from Jill (the Real Food Forager) today! Jill is constantly providing terrific information to help us all make well-informed decisions when food shopping. She's debunked 'healthy' sweeteners, explained common industry tricks like meat glue and kept us informed about changes in standards of food practices and labeling. We're definitely smarter shoppers because of Jill and we're thrilled to share her work with our readers on HandPicked Nation.

Thanks Jill!
