  5:00 pm  - 6:30 pm

Staying healthy and eating well to help us feel good is important for many of us right now. When it comes to health our gut is key.

In this interactive nutrition and cooking webinar discover how a healthier digestive system means a healthier you! Gut health is a hot topic; more and more research is linking gut health to disease and wellbeing – from digestive health and metabolism to immunity and even mood.

You’ll come away with a better understanding of what gut health is, including:

  • The key things you need to know about beneficial bacteria and how to look after your own.
  • The link between the gut and the brain including the latest ground breaking studies
  • The impact of stress on the gut
  • The difference between probiotics and prebiotics and how to include more of both in your diet.
  • How to use fermented food in your diet and why you should
  • The role of fibre in gut health and how to get more into your diet.

You’ll make a delicious gut-loving coleslaw and some overnight fermented oats using a fermented milk kefir (or yoghurt). You will also have the opportunities to have your own your digestive dilemmas answered. After the lesson, you will receive a range of gut friendly fermented recipes plus a handout covering everything in the webinar.
