Food As Medicine, The Breakfast Edition
- Saturday and Sunday, July 26-27, 7am-1pm
Instructors: Todd and Bronwen Caldecott
Description: The most important and yet most neglected meal of the day is breakfast. Despite its traditional importance, found in many cultures even today, breakfast has become a forgotten discipline in the Western world. As the body is made of food, the nature and quality of your day is entirely predicated on the nature and quality of the food you eat in the morning. In this weekend workshop, join Todd Caldecott for an exploration of breakfast, and how to eat strategically to support blood sugar, a positive mental outlook, and lots of energy all day long. Get yourself out of the rut of eating snacks all day and relying on stimulants such as coffee to function. Arrive at 7am for a brief walk and exercise, and then come back in for a delicious healthy breakfast that will satisfy you for hours, followed by a morning lecture and Q&A on using Food As Medicine. Includes a free signed copy of Food As Medicine.
Food As Medicine, in Vancouver
- Saturday and Sunday, Feb 15-16, 12-5pm
Instructors: Todd and Bronwen Caldecott
Description: Now with more than five years of classes behind us we are happy to offer Food As Medicine again for those that want to learn the practical skills of using food to prevent and treat disease. While cooking classes are easy to find, very few people anywhere in North America can teach the art and science of medicinal cooking at this level. Immerse yourself in the energetics of food, and step past the dietary dictocrats to get at the heart of what makes you tick. Learn how to eat strategically to meet your individual needs, how to prepare delicious, nourishing recipes, and how to make simple herb-food remedies to keep you and your family healthy. Includes a full course meal both days, and a free copy of Food As Medicine: The Theory and Practice of Food.
- Saturday and Sunday, Mar 1-2, 12-5pm
Instructor: Todd and Bronwen Caldecott
Herbal medicine is the oldest system of medicine on the planet, and over the last several thousand years herbalists have learned how to make potent herbal extracts with active medicinal qualities.

Montana Herb Gathering
- July 18, 19 and 20th
*CANCELLED, DUE TO LACK OF REGISTRANTS! PLAN FOR 2015!
This will be Todd’s fourth year in a row as a featured speaker at the Montana Herb Gathering, and because he’s only allowed to come twice in a row, this is very likely going to be the last year at the gathering for awhile. This year, however, Todd was volunteered to do some cooking, and so in addition to teaching his regular courses, he will also be holding a practical “Food As Medicine: In the Kitchen” workshop. This year’s gathering will be held at Boulder Hot Springs in Montana. For more details please visit the Montana Herb Gathering website.
