Fermentation 101 Workshop

January 26, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 4:00 pm


Join us later this month to add a new healthy habit to your wellness repertoire- FERMENTED FOODS! Sascha has been fermenting foods for years, and has experience with everything from sauerkraut to kefir to kvass! Don’t know those terms? Then this class is for you! Read on for more details and how to register. 

About the class: Fermentation is one of the oldest forms of food processing, and once upon a time, fermentation was a necessary skill in order to preserve food and get sufficient calories and nutrition when food sources were scarce. However, with the advent of fridges, high-speed transportation, and the loss of traditional practices in the kitchen, fermented foods not only became less popular but to some, completely unknown and mysterious. But luckily for us and future generations, the art of fermentation has begun a resurgence and such foods are becoming popular and widely available once again.

If you’ve been paying attention at all to the latest in the nutrition world, you will likely have heard of kombucha, kefir, fermented vegetables and more. Perhaps these sounded strange and foreign to you, but have become a part of your diet. Or perhaps you’ve heard of them but haven’t yet taken the leap and given them a try. In our modern society, as a whole we have moved away from these foods and let’s face it…we’re not getting any healthier as a species, and our kids are sicker than ever. History has demonstrated that those who enjoy the most thriving and vibrant of health understand that these are exactly the foods that we must include in our daily diets.

To me, the most sustainable way to health is to be armed with the knowledge and wisdom of how to do it yourself. This is how we pass knowledge down through the generations and keep our children and grandchildren healthy. So if you want to learn how to ferment foods and beverages in your own home, then this class is for you!

It’s time to take the mystery out of achieving and maintaining glowing health. And I mean ‘glowing’ quite literally. By incorporating these foods into your diet, you will see yourself transform. You will:

  • look and feel younger
  • your mind will be clearer
  • your PMS will diminish
  • your cravings will go away
  • your immunity will thrive

And all of this for pennies a day, using very basic ingredients, some of which you may already have in your own kitchen.

Come on out for some fascinating education, demos, yummy tasters so that you can learn how EASY, TASTY and INEXPENSIVE anti-ageing, immune-boosting, life-transforming nutrition can be.
