The Best Sources for Affordable Healthy Food

August 11, 2017

Well hello there, Mint family. Welcome to the very first installment of this super exciting partnership between Mint and Root + Revel!

Before we dive into today’s post, how about a little meet and greet? Hi! I’m Kate Kordsmeier, the founder of Root + Revel, a food and wellness blog helping people strike the balance between good and good for you.

I’m a full-time food writer for magazines, a recipe developer, and blogger. I’m also living proof that food is medicine (check out my story to learn more!). My main message is: Food Heals! That doesn’t have to mean bland chicken and steamed broccoli. Taste is paramount and we take it back to basics, infusing beauty, flavor and celebration into everyday life, helping you live naturally, without sacrifice.

That being said, I’m the first to admit that healthy, organic food is expensive. Plain and simple. Even if you support organic agriculture and pasture-raised/grass-fed/wild-caught growing methods, they just cost more money than their conventional counterparts.

But that doesn’t mean you have to shell out wads of cash every time you hit up Whole Foods. Hence why I’ve teamed up with Mint to spill all my affordable, healthy eating secrets.
