Beth is an organic mama and co-founder of Green BEAN Delivery.
As an accomplished nutritionist, speaker, and curriculum writer, Elizabeth Blessing fervently believes that eating farm-fresh foods—as close to the source as possible—is the healthiest way to eat. As a budding Noblesville, Indiana native, Blessing became fascinated by nutrition. After becoming a vegetarian in her early teens, she grew very tired and felt unhealthy. Her neighbor—who happened to be a certified dietician—quickly realized she was deficient in iron and suggested supplements and dietary changes. That experience was game-changing. She went on to attend Indiana University and received a B.S. in Applied Health Dietetics followed by a M.S. in Nutrition from Seattle’s Bastyr University, a regionally accredited, globally respected institution of natural health arts and sciences. While in Seattle, Blessing supervised a university organic vegetable and herb garden and also co-published a Washington State University web-based curriculum, allowing students the opportunity to grow, harvest, and prepare foods while learning about nutrition and wellness. Currently, Blessing contributes nutritious recipes cooking tips, along with guidance how to live a healthier life for our Healthy Times Blog. Blessing also sits on the Green BEAN Delivery procurement committee, actively weighing in on product offerings to ensure the products abide by our strict guidelines.
