The Colors, The Cauldron and The Kumquat: Chinese Food Therapy Made Easy

Help!!! What should I eat???  There is so much conflicting information out there, how is one to know how to eat “healthy?”  Thankfully, Chinese Medicine is a complete and elegant guide and I am its most enthusiastic messenger because I LOVE FOOD, I LOVE FEELING GREAT, and I HAVE VERY LITTLE TIME TO FUSS ABOUT IT!  The basics of digestion  from a Chinese Medicine perspective.(The Cauldron), eating for your Chinese Medicine Constitution (The Colors), a whole new vision of food groups (The Kumquat),  and an insanely practical way to put it all into play will be presented. By the way… did I mention The Cauldron contains the key to weight loss?  $20 per person.

Drink Your Way To Better Health

Plain water isn’t necessarily the best option and I know I will get a lot of backlash for this one, but….wine isn’t either.  However, you can prevent disease, promote endurance, energy and calm and become more resilient to stress by making every drop of liquid you consume count.  I will introduce you to many adaptogens (consumed as tea), including a few medicinal mushrooms.  Infusions and ferments will be covered as well. This will be a beverage tasting that will put Napa Valley and Verdant Tea to shame.  $25 per person.
