There is a wonderful new online cooking class available dedicated to holiday foods, and almost all of the recipes are suited to SCD, GAPS and Primal diets. I’m really enjoying taking online cooking courses. The fact that this course offers SCD/GAPS/Primal cooking lessons is great! I have done cooking classes in my hometown before, but none are suited to my diet. I know my first Thanksgiving I only ate about 3 dishes because I couldn’t have the rest of the stuff I prepared. Having a bit more guidance on how to prepare a whole holiday feast would have been helpful. 🙂
The course material is available for lifetime, so for holiday dinners to come you’ll always have some refresher videos to watch and your favorite recipes stored or printed out. There’s also access to an online forum with all the course participants. This is invaluable as everyone can exchange ideas, help each other out with learning and get questions answered from the course teacher, Jenny from Nourished Kitchen. I had the chance to meet her at the Wise Traditions Conference and she is so amazing!
Check out this video introduction for the course:
I will be signing up for the course too and I’m excited to get some new ideas. My family celebrates Christmas with a nice turkey dinner and we usually have a New Years feast with extended family featuring a roast ham. This on top of Thanksgiving makes for 3 feasts, so I can always use more recipes and techniques to help expand my culinary skills. If you’re on SCD or GAPS and worried about any of the recipes, I’ll be doing them too so we can compare notes in the forums.
