Imagine hearing that Vikki Baptiste of RelyLocal had nominated me! I was deeply moved by her gesture, the words she shared just made me cry! I feel very grateful.
Karen’s tireless efforts to promote healthy and safe nutrition range from free public workshops to blogging and other forms of social media. Some know her as the “Burger Lady”, campaigning for fresh and vibrant local food, and the health benefits that come with it.
Others know her by way of her blog, bestofmotherearth.com, which teaches how healthy nutrition, and the right vitamins and supplements, can be beneficial to the health of children and adults alike.
Reaching out to community groups as well as individuals, Karen inspires us all to keep our health at the forefront of our minds by encouraging us to make our meals from scratch, using locally grown organic produce, and to supplement naturally rather than chemically.
