The Nourishing Gourmet

I'm excited about a new resource online for those of us who want to be able to eat a healthy diet but have budget restraints. Kimi from the popular blog, is offering a 13 week ecourse which teaches you everything from how to shop, to how to cook, to how to save on nourishing food. The ecourse is titled, A Peasant's Feast: Nourishing Food on a Budget.

I just took a look at her "Preview" where she has a nice video where she demonstrates seafood fried rice and REALLY helpful print material. It can be so hard to know what you are looking for to get a good product. What fish is really good for you? There are many that are farmed in a way that is just not safe for regular consumption. The print materials lay it all out in a way that is easy to understand.

Kimi says this about the course:

"In a nutshell, this class will have two purposes. First, to share the basis principles of a nourishing, healthy diet, secondly to share how I do that on a budget. I've found that many people desire to eat well, but feel they can only eat well on a rich man's budget. This ecourse is all about showing how the we can eat good food on a reasonable budget.
This is a thirteen week class (a baker's dozen) discussing extensively what to shop for, how to save, and how to cook. We will be discussing what to buy and how to save on poultry, beef, and seafood. I will be teaching how to sprout, soak grains, and how to make sourdough bread and homemade yogurt. I will teach the students how to stretch one pound of beef into a meal for many, how to stretch one single chicken into several meals, and how to stretch high quality seafood. They will learn how to make their own salad dressings, how to lacto-ferment vegetables, the benefits of making your own chicken broth, and how to menu plan.

By the end, students should have a firm foundation of what to shop for, where to find good local food, and how to prepare it. To read more extensively about what each week will bring go here. Another important part of the ecourse is the forum where people have the ability to both discuss with each other that week's topic, and also interact with me and ask questions. This gives me the opportunity to help trouble shoot any issues they are having."

The course costs less than ten dollars a week for enrollment and she is making payment plans available as well. Don't wait to sign up if you are interested as registration for the class ends June 27th!

Also, Kimi is offering an affiliate program for bloggers helping promote her ecourse which I am part of, so by
buying this product, you will also be supporting my blog through the small commission I make through your purchase!


  1. Thanks for your articles. A Healthy lifestyle has so many benefits and increase your longevity. I enjoy reading about preparing healthy food.

  2. The classes sound valuable and frugally placed. I think your kind words about buying is a great honest open partnership. I will looking into it for my site.



It's rude to eat and run. Humor me with conversation please!
