Keto Klub + Lemon Zesties recipe

Meet Cindy Hardie, host/educator of my CNF Keto Klub, assistant Customer Engagement Manager at our 10th ave Market & Café.

If you want to know how a certain dietary lifestyle works, come and see Cindy. She’s personally lived the vegan, vegetarian, paleo and now keto lifestyle, as well as everything in between. She’s finessed recipes to suit her family of 5; navigated through various health scares and concerns with the different dietary lifestyles; and poured hours into research through books and Community Natural Food’s dedication to paid weekly staff trainings. All of this research and personal testing is complimented by the success stories that customers confide in her. In fact, walking customers through their wellness journeys is a reason that Cindy loves working at Community Natural Foods. She describes it as a positive energy to be around. People deciding to take control of their health and allowing staff at Community to join them on their journeys.

Cindy is a big advocate for the keto diet – or fat-adapted. She’s personally experienced improved mental clarity, sustained energy throughout the day, her cravings have disappeared, and she lost inches off her waist. Fitting then that she is the host and main educator of the CNF Keto Klub, a free event series that meets twice a month at our 10th ave Market and Cafe (1304 10th Avenue SW).
