Jen Haugen is an award-winning registered dietitian nutritionist on a mission to help moms nourish themselves so they can better nourish their families. Jen’s unique “down-to-earth” approach encourages moms to connect with their families over food from the fields and in the garden, in the kitchen and at the table all while creating the recipe to a nourishing life.
Jen is the author of The Mom’s Guide to a Nourishing Garden (2016). The book highlights the simple idea of how a garden not only grows nourishing food for a family; a garden can also nourish the soul. The book includes everything you need to know to start a garden with over 35 different fruits and vegetables, plus 30 garden-fresh recipes. It’s perfect for the mom who craves simplicity, as it provides the “recipe” to create a nourishing life as well. This book makes family gardening not only achievable, but fun!
Along with her book, Jen’s website provides many other helpful tools for moms, including a monthly newsletter, her blog, and a fun and informative video series soon to come. Jen is also on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.
Jen is a wife and mother of two children, one son and one daughter, and has lived the life of wanting to do something big and change the world. Yet, it wasn’t until she did her TEDx talk where she discovered the world she really needs to change (and all moms need to change) is the world right in front of her – found in the simple times of connecting with her kids in the kitchen and in the garden.
