Learn about your circadian rhythm and how to start your day off right with superfoods breakfasts. Create detox salads, soups, superfood smoothies and desserts. Learn to maximize the nutrient bio-availability in your foods.

Microbes, Probiotics & Fermentation

Recent research has discovered that about 90% of all of the good bacterial cells in the human body live in our gut. Ninety Percent! The other 10% are throughout our organ systems and our cells. We are the habitat for these microbes which live inside us known as the Human Microbiome. It is a mixture just as complex as life on earth. We have all sorts of life forms living alongside each other inside our gut. In this class, we learn about cultured foods, how to make them and why they’re beneficial. We will create probiotic seed and nut cheeses, sauerkrauts, kimchee, coconut yoghurt, snacks & elixirs to encourage the growth of our healthy gut bacteria. Learn how to feed these probiotics and this human microbiome with prebiotic foods to balance the internal ecosystem with colonizing gut flora cultures.

Dehydrator Class Levels 1 & 2

Using the dehydrator to preserve food while retaining the living digestive enzymes provides us with a connection between the worlds of cooked and raw foods. A key to a raw food diet rich in your favourite fruit spreads, breads, crackers, crusts, tart shells, noodles, wraps and cookies is a dehydrator. With raw food sometimes we crave the crunchy, salty “snacky” things that we don’t have access to in our raw world without a little creativity.
