Though many holistic nutritional practitioners have long been emphasizing the importance of prioritizing a healthy gut, modern nutritional science is only now beginning to discover the complexity and importance of the role of the gut in everything from our immune system to overall well being.
Holistic Culinary Nutritionista Keisha Luke has studied a broad range of holistic health practises, and combined with her own experience of profound personal healing, has developed a passion for helping people improve their well being through optimizing their gut health.
In this fun, hands-on workshop, Keisha will be sharing the remarkable story of how she overcame her own health issues and obstacles through improved nutrition. There will be discussion of the nature of the digestive process, digestive health and how to maintain a healthy gut ecosystem. Other topics covered include: foods that harm vs. foods that heal, an understanding of fibre, fats, probiotics, greens, and their role in the body, and ways to collaborate with holistic health practitioners to help accelerate the healing process.
Participants will learn about and get to sample different kind of gut-friendly foods like Keisha’s own Berry Komboucha & Qrazy Quinoa Balls. The class also includes recipes and a hands-on opportunity to learn how to make easy gluten-free and vegan banana and apple breakfast muffins, as well as an avocado, raw chocolate, and chia seeds “Superfood Pudding”.
