Culinary Nutrition Roundup 4

We’re entering the home stretch of the Fall 2017 Culinary Nutrition Expert program, and our students are still cooking up a storm (and enjoying it). In the last couple of weeks, students have explore therapeutic foods for healing and sweet treats.

While these two categories of recipes may seem like polar opposites, when approached the culinary nutrition way they are both equally nourishing and help to build health. After 11 weeks of recipe assignments, our students are completing the year with recipes that truly nourish from the inside out. In our latest kitchen roundup, we can’t think of a better way to end the year than sharing photos of our students’ healing broths along with their sweet treats.

“Okay, chia seeds are growing on me. This is the chia seed chocolate pudding that I put in my girl’s lunch today. It has apple sauce, cacao, chia seeds and honey with some water. Although you could also mix it with a great herbal tea, good idea right?”

“Another delicious assignment – a Healing Vegan Cream of Mushrooms Soup. (PS I’m convinced I see a face in the Tamari on top.) I used shiitake, oyster and cremini mushrooms. I’ve become pretty obsessed with the healing benefits of mushrooms and have been drinking reishi tea every night so I was really excited to make this soup. Creaminess is from cashews, bold flavour from miso and awesome colour is from turmeric of course.”

“Transformation: Immune Power Broth – After 10 hours, 14 veg, chicken, roots, and herbs became an inflammatory, immune boosting, energy fueling comforting drink. I’m well stocked, with stock.”
