Jackie Patterson

Tweed and District Horticultural Society
“sprouted” into their 2014 program on Tuesday February 4,…topic of the meeting
was “Sprouted Super Food Products”. Jackie Patterson, owner of Back 2 the
Garden located in Stirling spoke about the
health benefits of sprouts. During Jackie’s presentation it became evident that
increased nutrients in our diets will decrease toxins and stress. By incorporating
sprouted products into one’s daily diet, individuals will be better able to
handle stress, increase their ability to exercise daily which will lead to a healthier
life style!  Jackie’s product line of
dried and milled sprouts is manufactured in an organic and gluten free facility
in Stirling. 
Her products include Broccoli Seed Powder, Chia Seed powder, Flaxseed
Powder, Brown rice, Lentils and Quinoa. Recipes were provided at the meeting.
