GLUTEN-FREE AND VEGAN BAKING

JANUARY 26 2-5PM

For any number of reasons, many people today choose to abstain from consuming animal products and grains which contain gluten. But that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy delicious, satisfying baked goods! This class will show you tips, tricks, and techniques for baking successful cakes, cookies, breads, pies, and other treats, using a variety of healthy alternatives to dairy, eggs, and wheat.

Now you can have your cake and eat it too!

THE PRIMAL VEGETARIAN- ADAPTING PALEO PRINCIPLES TO VEGETARIAN AND VEGAN DIETS

SATURDAY,  FEBRUARY 22, 2-5PM

Perhaps you’ve heard great things about the Paleo diet but are reluctant to eat meat. This class will discuss ways to benefit from and incorporate Paleo principles into even the strictest vegan diet. To demonstrate, we’ll prepare (and eat!) some simple vegan dishes (including dessert!), substituting Paleo-friendly whole foods for potentially inflammatory grains, legumes, and processed modern foodstuffs. You can enjoy ultimate well-being from eating a tasty ancestral diet without compromising your principles or preferences!

$15 suggested donation, payable to the instructor at the event.

FERMENTING AT HOME- KOMBUCHA, KEFIR, AND KVASS

SUNDAY, MARCH 23, 2-5PM

Culturing foods at home is easy, affordable, and fun! As Hippocrates said, “All health begins in the gut,” and probiotic foods are crucial to establishing and maintaining the healthy gut flora necessary for strong digestion and immunity.

In this class we’ll learn the basics of making your own kombucha for just pennies per serving, as well as both dairy and coconut kefir- a probiotic beverage revered through the ages for its health-promoting properties. We’ll also make an exotic, yet simple, vegetable kvass, a probiotic-rich and deliciously refreshing drink that can be enjoyed every day. Including these cultured foods in your diet can contribute to a whole new level of vibrant health!
