ANOTHER BONE-BROTH CLASS...

Becca Crawford

Ok, I lied. I said I wasn't going to run any more bone broth classes this year but I have been approached by a group of PTs from my gym to run a class for them and I'm opening it up to the general public to join!

Home-made stock (aka bone broth) was a staple in all traditional cultures. People of yesterdays ate nose to tail – meaning that the whole of the animal (including the bones, fat and organ meat) was consumed. In fact these ‘odd bits’ were the mostly highly prized part of a kill for our hunter-gatherer ancestors, as they worked out through trial and error over millennia that they were the most nutrient-dense. Today, most people in Western society simply don’t consume home-made broth on a regular basis, either because of lack of information or know-how on where to source or how to prepare broth properly and deliciously. Here’s your opportunity to build strong immunity, robust digestive function and vibrant health for the remainder of 2015 and beyond by learning how. One of my missions in life is to being back these age-old nutritious foods to the modern table. With a vengeance. And a playful twist.

I’ll teach you the ins and outs and everything you need to know about how to make a gelatinous, delicious broth and how to incorporate it in your and your family’s daily diet. 

I have a e-folder full of testimonials about how my bone broth and my broth making workshops changed people lives. Here’s one I received from a client recently:

“Hi Soulla, I’ve made a dedicated effort to drink broth every day for the last couple of months and the pain in my arthritic hands has almost gone….It’s a miracle!!” 
- Sandy Tate.

In my workshops I will explain the scientific reasons for HOW & WHY this traditional food works miracles!

i) the health benefits of bone broth
ii) step by step guide on how to make a gelatinious chicken, beef, pork and fish broth,

v) where to source pastured bones

2.  1 hour informative nutritional theory discussion and Q&A

School & Work Lunches Workshop: Thursday 5 Feb @ 7:30pm

Becca Crawford

With school about to start next week (yikes!!) I thought it would be timely to kick off the new year with a school /work lunches workshop. As parents, we all want to raise happy, healthy, vibrant kids and the best place to start is with nutritious home-made meals made simple and easy.

I will be covering the following:

  • why childhood chronic illnesses and degenerative diseases are becoming an epidemic
  • why such illnesses didn’t exist in traditional (pre-industrialised) societies
  • what are some nutrient-dense wholefoods that will give your children the building blocks and energy they need to play, learn, concentrate, grow and function properly, and perform their very best
  • why the source and processing of our food is paramount
  • why nutrient-density and removal of toxins are key
  • myth busting around saturated fats
  • what’s wrong with what children (and adults) are typically eating for lunch and snacks: the dangers of sugar, gluten and industrial seed oils
  • a 3 step action plan!
  • equipment to have on hand
  • how to deal with uneaten food and fussy eaters

Cost is $70 per person and includes:

  • theory discussion on the above
  • detailed handout including theory, lunch box suggestions & recipes
  • practical demonstrations
  • hands-on experience
  • food tasting
  • opportunity to ask questions

This workshop is ideal for:

  • parents who are confused about what to pack for their children for lunch or morning tea, or want further ideas or inspiration
  • students and adults who are confused about what to pack for lunch or morning tea, or want further ideas or inspiration
  • people who have transitioned off processed foods but are not 100% clear on how to incorporate or combine wholefoods into their lunches
  • people whoare constantly hungry throughout the day despite their lunch
  • parents whose children are constantly hungry throughout the day despite their lunch
  • people who want to replace or reduce the amount of store-bought /canteen lunches in favour of home-made nutritious lunches
  • parents whose children frequently succumb to colds and infections.

Where: 23 Kent Street, Waverley, 2024.
When: Thursday 5th Feb 7:30pm- 10pm ish
Spaces limited to 15. Spots typically book out within 24 hours so get in quick! If the class is fully booked, I will run another class the week later. If you can’t make it on a weeknight let me know and I will organise a weekend class if I get a sufficient quorum requesting that.
