Jennifer Garner: We’re almost self-sustainable

Jennifer Garner has opened up about being as self-sustainable as possible, admitting she does her best to “grow whatever we can”.

The 43-year-old actress is mother to daughters Violet, nine, six-year-old Seraphina and three-year-old son Samuel with husband Ben Affleck.

And as she attended Gisele Bundchen’s Just Label It Anti-GMO Event in Silver Lake, California, on Monday, Jennifer opened up about the importance of being self-sustainable.

“I cook for my kids, and we have a garden,” Jennifer said. “We try to grow whatever we can, although I can’t say we have the hugest crop in the world, but I do try to pay close attention and I do my best.”

It’s not just her own produce that Jennifer cooks, however. The Dallas Buyers Club star is also something of a domestic goddess in the kitchen.

“I make everything,” Jennifer added. “Roasted chicken and mashed potatoes, gravy, homemade bread, corn on the cob, you know, whatever.”

Jennifer is making it her mission to educate her children on the importance of staying healthy and knowing where their food comes from.

However, she admitted it can sometimes be something of a struggle to do so.

“They weren’t thrilled tonight when I came to see you guys, so right now I’m not asking for their vote,” Jennifer said when asked about leaving her children on a school night. “But we talk about our food, we grow food, we talk about what goes into it. They planted it, they water it, they take pictures next to it.”
