As you can see Tavi loves her fermented pickle! Kaila, her mother, also enjoyed the fermented foods workshop:
Amelia is an incredibly dynamic teacher, full of light and life. She empowers her students by guiding them gently through the science of our bodies, and inspires us to make change through her positive energy and enthusiasm. In one workshop I learned what I feel every human should learn in 1st grade: it's not only what we eat, but how we feel about what we eat. How incredible to know that force feeding spinach will not do any good! The nutrients are just waiting for our minds, our hearts and our stomachs to align. I have an entirely new approach to eating - seeking enjoyment, embracing health, finding balance. Thank you Amelia!
