Heal Your Gut: Soups and Stews

Oct. 30, 7-9pm

Wow, does a body notice a difference when breakfast is balanced and filling vs. sugar laden, light and lacking in plants!  Audrey will demo and discuss her favorite breakfast options which are always satisfying and real-food, plant-based!  There will be a mix of options for those who desire food on the fly or leisurely and calm(and a bit of coaching around this topic).  Yum!

 

 

Have you learned about gut health and how an unhealthy gut is extremely common, but also the root cause to many health issues and struggles in the body?  Allergies, asthma, hormone imbalance, immune function, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, depression, obesity and so much more are tied to the "microbiome", aka, "gut".  This class is for anyone who loves to eat warming, grounding and seasonal comfort foods while living a busy life.  Together we will focus on preparing and cooking to help heal and seal the gut while also accommodating various diets and lifestyles.  Participants will:

-Experience an interactive, hands-on learning experience

-Learn specific details about "food as medicine"

-Sample each recipe

-Enjoy a little wine, tea or infused water

-Focus on plant based eating in a judgement free zone (there will be animal ingredients this time, but always vegan options)

-Walk away with a recipe handout to use at home

-Form new friendships with like-minded, healthy-striving adults
