JESSICA’S NATURAL CHOICES FOOD IN NATURALS
In a speech on Friday, Jessica Simmons spoke about the importance of organic food in her community.
“Our community needs organic, we need fresh,” she said.
“But when we go to the store, we have to think about what’s in our produce, what’s on our shelves, what we’re feeding the animals, and where is the food coming from?”
That’s the challenge that we’ve had to face,” Simmons said.”
And it’s not about the prices or the price tag.
It’s about the people who come to our community, the communities that we’re in, and how they relate to our food.
“I think it shows a lot of people, including the people that are here, that we can do this.””
It’s a little surreal, but I think it’s a good thing,” Simmons told the Daily News.
“I think it shows a lot of people, including the people that are here, that we can do this.”
A lot of the people at the rally said that the food she sells is “just as healthy” as her regular diet.
“My husband says, ‘You’re a real pro and that’s great,'” said Simmons.
“We’re just eating natural food.
It really is.
We’re not trying to replace our traditional diet.
We are trying to give our health a little boost.”
Somerville, Vermont-based Jessica’s Natural Foods is one of several companies Simmons works with to grow their organic, locally grown products.
Her products include the Jams, Jams Baked Beans, Baked Cauliflower, and Green Beans.
Simmons said that she started her organic food business after she got married and decided to stop buying organic food.
“The idea of the business was that I’d have my husband and I would cook all the food and then we would go out and eat and then have our family eat and we’d be really healthy,” she told the New York Times.
Simmings’ food is a bit of a contradiction.
The products are organic, but the products she sells are also 100% natural.
“They’re a lot healthier,” she added.
Suffering from asthma, Simmons said she started to think differently about what she was eating.
“A lot more I was thinking about nutrition, and I had this feeling that everything was a little bit artificial, a little too processed, and everything was just a little greasy,” she explained.
“I just thought, ‘Oh, okay, that’s okay.
I think that’s when the problem started.
And then I realized that if I just ate what I needed to, then everything would be okay.”
She is also a supporter of the Natural Foods Alliance, an organization that advocates for sustainable food.
In a recent statement, Simmons wrote, “Our country needs more farmers and ranchers who will sustainably and responsibly farm their land and supply the food we eat, and that includes organic food.”
“This is a big deal because it means that we are growing more and more organic foods and that the market is growing,” Simmons added.
“And I’m proud to be a part of it.
I think we’re on the right track, and it’s just an amazing feeling to have this level of support for the organic food industry.”
