Hi, I’m Jenna. :)

My name is Jenna. I have a Boston Terrier named Squirt, I live in the Great Smokey Mountains of NC, and I own an artisan granola company called Happy-Go-Lucky Foods that specialized in organic, vegan, and gluten-free goodies for the conscious foodie. I have an organic garden that’s never big enough and a tremendous passion for healthful and unique eats and drinks. I actively support local agriculture, seasonal produce, humanely raised animals, and eco-friendly living. We shouldn’t eat asparagus in the winter, and eating organic for organic’s sake isn’t always the best choice for us or our planet if our bananas are coming from halfway across the world. Actively thinking about how our food choices impact our bodies and our planet is critical for the sustainability of both ourselves and the world we live in.

With that being said, nothing gives me greater pleasure than food. I love to eat what I grow and share it with my friends. Home cooked food doesn’t have to come down to Meatloaf Mondays and Pork Chop Thursdays. Cooking is exciting. It’s social, it’s creative, it’s love.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you find yourself inspired.

  2. Hi Jenna,

    So glad to find you at the Market yesterday, so glad I had your card, SO GLAD I’m at your website right now. Bookmarking now to return often. Yum! (By the way, the granola was fan-freaking-tastic! Thank you!)

  4. i really love your blog concept a lot, and i’m a little jealous of your home. it sounds awesome. i do my best to eat locally as well, although often times that involves me working all day at a buddy’s farm and coming home with a bunch of produce.

    keep up the awesome work, and thanks for stopping by the poor man’s kitchen.

  5. Hi Jenna!

    I’m finally getting around to visiting the sites of those who’ve been following me, and I wanted to check yours out since we’ve had some back-and-forth. I really love this space, and I view food and our situation the exact same way. We get so caught up in food labelled ‘organic’ but we aren’t paying attention to the footprint created in transporting it to us. One of my favourite food books is The Hundred Mile Diet. An inspiring read.

    Thanks for your recent comments, and I look forward to seeing more posts from you!

  6. Awesome Jenna! Local produce is the best – especially from your own back yard or the local farmer’s market. Keep sharing the great cooking ideas. This would be a great name for a restaurant.
