A Peasant's Feast: Nourishing Food on a Budget

I wanted to tell you all a little bit more about the class being offered (soon!) by our friends at The Nourishing Gourmet. 

The e-class is a thirteen week course with weekly lessons being taught by a mother, cook of real food, and woman who appreciates a good deal. She has packed a tremendous amount of incredible information into this course and we are so excited about it!

Here is what she has to say:
I’ve put together a great 13 week ecourse, starting on June 28th, that will give you a bite-sized amount of information every week in the form of topical articles, cooking demonstration videos, and shopping guides.  I will give you tips on where to buy quality food for less, demonstrate cooking methods that both boost the nutritional value of your food and stretch expensive meat, and explain in more detail traditional cooking practices.
If  you’ve wanted to learn how to make your own yogurt, sourdough bread, lacto-fermented foods, or how to sprout and soak grains, or simply how to cook real food this ecourse is for you. If you have a hard time balancing the expensive of buying quality ingredients on a budget, I can help.
By taking this huge topic, and breaking it down into manageable pieces, you can learn and digest new information in a timely manner. By the end of the class, you will have the confidence you need in knowing where to shop, what to buy, and how to cook real food on a budget. 

The class will cover many topics, including~ 
  • How to balance your budget with nutritional food
  • How to stretch one chicken into three meals
  • What it really means to eat a nourishing diet
  • Why I am not a vegetarian when beans are so cheap
  • How to make one cup of leftover seafood stretch to feed 6 people
  • The benefits of sprouting and soaking grains
  • How to make your own salad dressings
  • How to make homemade yogurt and sourdough bread
  • How to make one pound of beef stretch to feed 6-8 people
  • How to make delicious fruit based desserts
  • Meal Planning Basics

  • What a typical weekly menu of nourishing frugal food could look like
