TRADITIONAL SOURDOUGH Bread BAKING
A workshop to explore a favorite food: Bread. We will look at different types of bread-making, different types of grains, different types of flour. We will then learn how to nourish a rye sourdough and the process of making a traditional sourdough bread with non-wheat whole grain flour (Einkorn, rye, buckwheat). We will also look at ideas to use leftover sourdough. Participants will have the opportunity to taste and take home some delicious, real sourdough bread and leave with all instructions and their own sourdough starter to finish the process at home. The sourdough starter we use is rye-based, so does contain gluten. The final bread can be made with gluten-free flour (i.e. buckwheat). The rye starter can be moved on a gluten-free flour, so you can still learn the principles of bread-making in this workshop, even if you are gluten-free.

SOUP MASTERING Secrets (incl. bONE Broth making)
It might seem so simple, yet it is actually rare that I taste truly delicious soup outside of my own kitchen... or soup that doesn't have that typical "bouillon powder" taste. So it seems to not be that easy after all... In this workshop I share with you my secrets to making absolutely delightful, yet at the same time nourishing and sustainable soups that do not contain any powders. While I do share my best recipes with you, the goal is to transfer a universal framework that leaves room for your own creative expression and individual taste combinations. This workshop includes how to make home-made (bone) broth. You are going home with 1 liter of home-made soup.
Next date: Monday 18.3.19, 18.30-21h

Nourishing Spring Cleanse
I propose a cleanse based on either soups (made with vegetables and bone broth) or a combination of bone broth and fresh vegetable juices. The basic cleanse lasts 5 days and can optionally be prolonged by 2 additional days and a Liver-Gallbladder flush, in order to eliminate potential residues in these organs. To make this cleanse more effective, this protocol contains as well exercises for an emotional, mental and material cleanse.
Next date: Friday 22-3-Monday 1-4.19

Happy Gut - Bone Broth
A workshop to dive deeper into the part of our body where 80% of our immune system is located: our gut! After some basics on gut barrier and gut flora, we will roll up our sleeves and learn how to make a forgotten super food for the gut: Bone Broth! We will also think of ideas how to use any leftover meat. Includes the recipe and a jar of broth to take home.
Sports and Nutrition
A workshop to explore the connection between sports and nutrition. What kind of nutrition for what kind of exercise? What kind of exercise for what kind of person?

Understanding the hidden language of unwanted symptoms
A workshop to explore the concept of how our soul expresses itself through our physical symptoms, unwanted habits and even seemingly random life happenings. We will look at the different body parts and what they represent. By applying two key questions we can gain a better understanding of the messages contained in our unwanted symptoms and habits.
How to raise self-esteem
Self-esteem is the pre-requisite for health and fertility. If we do not have enough of it, we will always end up sabotaging our efforts to eat, live or think in a way that is good for us, because deep down we feel like we are not worthy of happiness and health. In this workshop we will explore the concept of self-esteem, what it consists of and what we can do to raise it.
Masculine and Feminine Energies and how they relate to food and body
We all have masculine and feminine energies in us. The challenge is to find the right balance. In this workshop we will explore the concepts of "Masculine" and "Feminine" and how they could be related to our food and body issues. We will identify common struggles and what we can do to overcome them.
In this workshop we will explore why we need nutritional supplements, which ones are essential and why there is no one-size-fits-all. I will share my criteria on how to select good quality ones and where to find them.
Just like we have individual fingerprints, we are also individual on a biochemical level. During this workshop you will understand why the same food can have different effects in different people and that people with similar physical and/or psychological characteristics, behaviors or symptoms can yet have completely different dietary needs.
Nourishing your baby
What we feed our babies sets the foundation for their future health and eating habits. Unfortunately, common advice for baby nutrition is highly influenced by industry interests. In this "alternative" workshop you will re-discover “pre-industrial”, traditional knowledge and wisdom in theory and practice! Includes the tasting (and optional making) of >10 foods/dishes that can serve as healthy first solids for your baby.
