Get Nourished: Eating for digestive health

January 24

Does your gut need some love and attention?

With so many conflicting fad diets, health advice and 'miracle cures' out there, no wonder that it can be completely overwhelming to know how to eat and what to cook if you suffer from all-too-common digestive issues! What all of these complaints can often be traced back to is not only the food you eat, but also the health of the digestive system as a whole. Learn how to make bone broth, incorporate fermented vegetables and combine foods for optimal digestion.

This class pairs well with Probiotic Foods: Fermented vegetables

*This class is free of gluten and dairy. Contains meat.

Fermented Foods: Probiotic vegetables

February 21

Fermented vegetables are making waves with a massive revival! Only a few years ago, many thought that yogurt had the market cornered for foods that are probiotic, but the humble, traditional, tangy side-dishes of sauerkraut, kimchi and even fermented pickles are making a big 'ol comeback! Join the fermentation revolution!

*This class is free of gluten and meat
