Food related issues are at the heart of my life's work. I was fortunate to be introduced to nutritionist and cook, Adele Davis, by a friend's mother while still in high school. I followed her lead and gave up processed foods, hydrogenated fats and refined sugar. I was active in the food coop movement, cooking for many years at the Seward Café, a worker owned collective in Minneapolis and eventually opened a restaurant of my own.
Later in life I took up road biking and backpacking and enjoyed figuring out how to eat well and fuel my adventures. Jenise's Jammers grew out of that and were soon a favorite in the family, a favorite with cycling and backpacking friends and now a favorite with anyone who enjoys wholesome foods.
