Detox with the Seasons
Seasonal changes are the perfect time for renewal and rejuvenation. A gentle shift in diet helps to stimulate your mind and body and get rid of excess weight, congestion, and clutter. As we detox and clean our bodies of toxins we also look at doing some de-cluttering of spaces and mind-sets. Learn how to re-set your metabolism on a seasonal basis with our workshops and seminars. It is a great method for testing for food allergies, and experimenting with how dairy and gluten affect our bodies.
Diet for Strong Bone Health
The Anti-Arthritis Diet
Osteoporosis, inflammation, and joint diseases are a major health crisis for millions of Americans. The body needs minerals (magnesium, phosphorus, boron, copper, manganese, zinc) to aid in calcium absorption into the blood and the standard American diet does not provide the kinds of vitamins and minerals needed for strong bone health. In this class we look at the best whole foods that support calcium absorption and are easily digestible to the system. We’ll introduce you to super foods like seaweed, and broths that support bone strength.
Diet for Gluten-Free Living
For gluten intolerance and Celiac Disease
When someone has an allergic reaction to gluten it means that they cannot tolerate the food in their system and the reaction produces an antibody to the gluten. The symptoms of a gluten allergy result from malabsorption or improper digestion of dietary nutrients. These symptoms can result in abdominal bloating or pain, digestive distress, nausea and other symptoms. If left unchecked, gluten intolerance can lead to Leaky Gut Syndrome and can cause small intestinal damage. In these workshops and cooking classes we introduce a whole foods diet that builds health and helps to remove the dependency on gluten and refined foods. We include many easy recipes and menu plans to make the transition an easy one.
Diet for Sugar Blues
Kicking the sugar habit can be a difficult endeavor. In this class we look at the pervasive use of sugar in our diet, why we eat it, and how we can take small steps to decrease our dependency. We introduce natural sweetener substitutes and show you how we can integrate these into our everyday cooking and baking. We also work with alternative whole grain flours for delicious treats we can enjoy everyday without compromising our health.
