Root and Nourish: A Conversation with Jennifer & Abbey FREE
May 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDTFree
Did you know you have access to a potent and sophisticated apothecary—right in your own kitchen? Plants, specifically herbs and spices, have been used for centuries as part of holistic healing traditions around the world to promote health, longevity, and beauty. And as more people become afflicted with chronic stress-based conditions, from inflammation and food allergies to anxiety and depression and menstrual irregularities, a whole new generation is rediscovering nature’s power for long-term wellness.
In Root & Nourish, wellness experts Abbey Rodriguez and Jennifer Kurdyla teach women how to incorporate plant medicine into everyday life through food and self-care. Organized into three areas of health concerns prevalent in women today—digestion, mental health, and female reproductive hormonal health—these affordable, seasonal, and sustainable recipes, drawn from Western herbalism and Ayurveda, are designed to help you curate a personalized herbal apothecary that will serve you for a lifetime.
Please join Jennifer and Abbey in conversation. In this 60-minute Q and A, Jennifer and Abbey will interview each other, and discuss their beautiful book and upcoming book club presented by The Alchemist’s Kitchen. Notable topics include:
- The Indigenous Traditions of Herbalism & Ayurveda
- Living in Accordance with the Rhythm of Nature
- Favorite Ayurvedic Recipes…Golden Cream of Beet Soup Anyone???
Guests will receive a very special offering and a recording will be provided to those who cannot attend in real time.
