Spice Up Your Health in the Kitchen: Joanna Helms, BA, RH (AHG)

Feb 03, 2017 06:05PM

In every home, you’ll find food prepared that is spiced with culinary herbs such as basil, thyme, garlic, cumin and many more. These herbs enhance the flavor of meals and fill the kitchen with aromas that bring joy to the senses. The kitchen is where we interact, communicate and bond as a family. In this workshop, Joanna Helms will share how you can use common spices in your kitchen to bring healing to your body. She will cover many herbs commonly used in the kitchen, explore their health benefits and provide recipes to take home. Helms will show you how the best healing can happen in the kitchen!
