At Spud, our mission is to support local and highlight sustainability to connect you with clean, bountiful, and nourishing food. We build relationships with vendors and farmers–people we trust–and the same goes for our ambassadors. Our ambassadors are our family. They are champions who breathe our like-minded values throughout their own lives. These mindful eaters and educated consumers nourish our community by providing their ways by supporting localism and eating healthy.

The month of February is heart-healthy month. shared tips on how to keep your heart healthy and pumping.  As we all know food has a beautiful way of connecting and bringing people together.

We asked our ambassadors to reflect on a recipe that fuels their heart, and then we gathered around the dinner table to share. Through this, we were able to provide delicious, nutritious, heart-healthy recipes for you. Whether you’re looking for an easy appetizer, a side dish, and filling entree, or a tasty dessert, these recipes will make sure your heart is getting all the love!
