The warmer weather readily lends itself to the art of fermentation- where time and temperature work magic to populate food and drinks with live enzymes and probiotics (friendly bacteria) essential for robust and vibrant health. I will be running 2 identical half-day workshops limited to 10 people each on Sunday 8th Feb and Sunday 22 Feb.IMG_5443

At each of these workshops I will be showcasing how to make the following:

  • sauerkraut (cultured/fermented cabbage)
  • pickles (cultured/fermented cucumbers)
  • kefir (dairy)
  • kefir (coconut water)
  • kefir (water)
  • cultured cream
  • cream cheese
  • beet kvass
  • kombucha

Cost is $140 per person and includes:

  • detailed theory discussion on gut health, the role of friendly bacteria and probiotic-rich foods, and the factors that affect our gut microbiome and loads more!
  • detailed handout including theory, step by step guides & recipes
  • practical demonstrations
  • hands-on experience
  • food tasting

  • those who suffer, or have family members who suffer, from low immunity (eg frequent colds, infections) or gut/digestive issues (including skin conditions)

soullachamberlain

IMG_5166With 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 epidemicIMG_3165
  • 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 & recipesIMG_2917
  • 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 infectionsIMG_3653
