This course is based on the components of traditional food preparation methods, as found in cookbooks like Sally Fallon-Morell’s Nourishing Traditions.

In this eCourse, Jenny from Nourished Kitchen shares her passion and experience with real food and how to prepare it.

The course offers information about how to make meals with the principles of affordability, flavor, and nourishment in mind. Jenny uses a simple, hands-on approach that will change the way you prepare foods for your family. Each lesson you will learn a variety of topics such as how to shop farmer’s markets and local farms to get the most for your money, buy in season, address how to feed those with food intolerances or allergies and sensitivities, and about the significance of knowing which foods are the best for your health and nutritional benefit and why.

Lessons are organized through down-loadable documents for print, online video tutorials, charts and other materials designed to organize the information in an easy-to-follow, comprehensive format. In no time, you’ll be preparing whole, local foods from scratch, and on your budget.
