Seasonal Food Workshops

I have two great seasonal foods workshops coming up. I hope you can join me!


Why seasonal workshops?


Well, pretty much because we are what we eat! What we put in our bodies every day has such a profound impact on everything that we do and feel. Come and discover the connections between how and why to eat in tune with the nature’s cycles.

And we have such an abundance of local amazing foods at our disposal, this whole 100-mile-diet-locavore-thing has something to it. Really.


I will also be offering these workshops at Santropol Roulant on Sept. 7th and Oct. 6th,

please check out this great community organization to get on their mailing list and find our about my workshops and other great events!


Get Grounded!

Late Summer Grounding Foods Workshop

September 11th 10am-1pm $45 at ahimsa yoga

The Late Summer is our time to get earthy, to connect with the core of nature. It is not quite harvest time but the bounties are beginning to flow. The Earth Element is about this perfectly balanced time in between.

Come and learn about how to balance with grounding foods during this important transition time. What are grounding foods? What is Late Summer all about? How do we cook during this season? Learn the answers to these questions and more drawing upon the ancient wisdom of Chinese Medicine, Macrobiotics and Ayurveda. With all of our collective ingredients together we will make an Earth Balancing Creamy Squash Soup to share together

Handouts will be provided.

Please bring one of the following LOCAL ingredients & let me know what you are bringing:

(and your own container for leftovers!)

Garlic cloves

Squash (any late summer variety, butternut, buttercup, acorn, pumpkin… the more orange the better!)

Sweet potatoes

Carrots

Onion

Boost Your Immunity With Food!

Autumn Foods Workshop

September 25th 10am-1pm $45 at ahimsa yoga

As the days grow a bit colder we instinctively are drawn to the more compact, dense abundance that the Autumn harvest offers. Adding more root vegetables and squashes to our diets is suitable in Autumn, as well as cooking our food a bit longer and eating warmer more densely nourishing meals. Minimizing mucous producing foods during this season is encouraged as we can see the abundance of ‘back to school colds’ start to arise. How can we support our immune systems simply, while eating seasonally? It’s easy! Nature knows what we need even if we sometimes forget. We will remind ourselves by drawing upon the ancient wisdom of Chinese Medicine, Macrobiotics and Ayurveda, as well as the wisdom that abounds in our local harvests. With all of our collective ingredients together we will make some Lung Tonic Tea and a Roasted Roots Immune Boost to share together.

Handouts will be provided.Please bring one of the following LOCAL ingredients & let me know what you are bringing:Mullein leaves, onions, squash, garlic, ginger, beans, pumpkin, burdock root, carrots, leeks, kale, sweet potatoes, yams, cauliflower, collards, Brussels sprouts, winter squash, parsnips cabbage, apples, pears, figs, grapes, pomegranate, mushrooms, thyme, any local root vegetable!
