One of the most important things I learned a few years ago was how to make nutritious food at home. Yes, I always loved to cook, but the food I loved to cook was laden with my favorite foods, most of which I now need to avoid. And of course, I was a bit dependent on that box of chicken stock or cream of mushroom soup from the grocery store! Now I have so much more confidence in the kitchen because I am not dependent anymore on processed foods.
To top it all off, the foods that can be cooked in your own kitchen are going to be more nutritious than any food you can get in the grocery store or a restaurant and of course, they will be much more safe from contaminants and toxins.
It’s been at least 3 years now since I first started taking the online classes by GNOWFLINS and at that time, I was learning traditional food preparation as outlined in one of my favorite books by Sally Fallon called Nourishing Traditions. This is the main book that got me started with traditional food preparation but I was intimidated by the idea of cooking everything from scratch. When I found out that GNOWFLINS had online classes to teach me these basics, I had no hesitation to get into those classes and can you believe that I am STILL in her classes every week? Yes, she has since built upon these classes to include all kinds of offerings including cheese-making (for those who can still have dairy), naturally fermenting foods, dehydrating classes, and so many others. The pictures in this post represent just some of the foods she helped me learn to prepare for optimum nutrition.
However, what prompted me to do this post was that she is now tackling the hardest thing for most of us and that is cooking around allergies/sensitivities! This is a class I have been looking forward to for many months now. If you are intimidated by the food restrictions you or a family member needs to avoid, look no further. Wardee will take you through all the common food allergies/sensitivities and help you learn how to cook nutritious alternatives with real food, not packaged food lacking nutrition! She understands your needs because her family has had great results in adopting these changes and have seen great health benefits along the way.
Whether you are gluten-free, nut free, soy free, egg free, etc., Wardee will help you get around these allergies/sensitivities with ease (it CAN be done) and enjoy your food again!
I owe a lot to Wardee because she really helped me get started on this journey to healing by her wonderful teaching skills and encouragement along the way. There are videos, PDF print outs, forums and more that are included in her eCourse packages but most exciting to me is that you have unlimited access to ALL prior classes and you can learn at your own pace! What a bonus feature! I still go back and refresh myself on how to make certain foods (I’m a visual learner) and just love the video format. It’s like having a video cookbook at my fingertips 24/7!
So, if you are ready to get some nutritious and allergy free cooking going in your home, I highly recommend these classes. There is no long-term commitment but you do get a better deal when you buy the year in advance.
And I want to let you know that although Wardee did not have an affiliate program for the first two years I was taking her classes, I am now happy to be an affiliate for her since I already promote her classes regularly. So, if you do decide to take these classes, you can also support my blog and Facebook Support Group efforts by using the links on my blog or in this post.
