Location, Santa Cruz, CA, TBA
10/5/14 Week One: Beet Kvass, Kefir, & Probiotic Sodas
Beet Kvass and kefir are probiotic drinks that have both been used for centuries to keep people healthy and strong. Beet Kvass is known in slavic nations as a “cure all.” It is a nutritional powerhouse that cleanses the liver, builds blood, reduces hypertension, aids digestion, and much more.
Kefir can improve digestive health and provide an excellent, bio-available source of protein and calcium. Homemade Kefir is one of the most powerful remedies for crowding out bad gut microbes like candida.
Use homemade kefir whey to make probiotic sodas that are alive and refreshing with awesome benefits, like Root Beer and Ginger Beer!
10/18/14 Week Two: Fermented Foods & Your Daily Routine
Learn how to prepare meals that incorporate fermented foods in creative ways. Come on an empty stomach so that your taste buds and tummy will apreciate the fresh flavors and nourishment even more!
Lactofermented Ketchup, Spicy Mustard, Probiotic Salsa Replace your classic american dead, and overly processed condiments, full of additives and shelf-stabilizers with vibrant fresh alternatives!
Cultured Ranch Dressing made with Creme Fraiche and Sour Cream contain billions of live cultures and tastes 1,000 times better than anything sold on the shelf! (I'll also show you how to make kefir cream:)
Fig Chutney is a delicious spread with beneficial probiotics. Fig Chutney is so nutrient rich and cleansing- a delight to add to your curries and indian food, or use as a jam repacement.
Wild Harvested Probiotic Pesto is mouthwatering, and pairs well with most savory dishes and raw veggies. The pesto provides live enzymes and beneficial microbes to nourish your intestinal flora, removing heavy metals from the body and providing excellent nourishment to the brain.
Nutritionist Craig Lane will be there to talk more about the amazing properties of these foods with the ultimate life-giving, gut-healing nourishment.
11/15/14 Week Three: Sauerkraut & Kimchee as Art & Medicine
