What is nutrient dense food?

Nutrient dense food is food that is packed with vitamins and minerals, flavor and vitality.  It’s the sort of food you just can’t stop eating because your body just knows that it needs it.  Commercial agriculture is driven by the need to make a profit and has given up flavor and nutrition at its expense.  As gardeners we are free to grow the best food possible, in order to deeply nurture our bodies and hearts.
