Meet The Team

  • HEATHER BABINEAU-Z

    Owner

    While working for over a decade in the ski industry, Heather pursued her many other interests as summer jobs and hobbies: holistic health, nutrition, organic farming and whole foods cooking to name a few. After seeing a need in her community for convenient, high-quality, full prepared meals, she started Whole and Nourished in May 2017.

    Heather enjoys sharing what she is so passionate about: connecting with others through food while contributing to local agriculture and her community's overall health and wellness.
