Food for the Mind + Gut
Learn what foods will make your brain brighter and better when you explore food for the mind and gut.
In this workshop, trainer Melanie Leeson shares her knowledge of foods that can help you to build and protect your gut microbiome and clear brain fog. You’ll also learn how to incorporate brain powering foods easily into your daily diet.
You’ll bring home recipes that use seasonal fruits and vegetables (such as blueberries, broccoli, leafy greens and avocado), fresh herbs, and spices (that add flavour and colour without any processed sauces, condiments and sweeteners) and are rich in healthy natural fats and oils from plant foods.
All the recipes are gluten- and dairy-free. They are not about following a particular trend or diet, they are about supporting beneficial homemade food. These meals and desserts are packed with nutritionally dense vegetables, ensuring that we load our bellies with as many varieties as possible, thereby removing the worry of counting preservatives, additives, emulsifiers, thickeners and flavouring enhancers.
You’ll leave feeling empowered and prepared to make an impact on your well-being.
