FoodFit Xmas Alumni Gathering

The FoodFit program provides a supportive environment for grads of the FoodFit program to stay  connected though bi-monthly cooking groups. This past week, we had an AMAZING turn out for the 2019 holiday Alumni meet-up - 15 people attended some from  the very early Foodfit grads. Big     numbers don’t suit everyone as it can be an overwhelming but we were fortunate to have the big   pre-teen room to accommodate. We shared stories of family holidays and feasting. 

We made 3 take home giftable items and have two in our back-pocket as fun holiday activities to      try at home.  We got to make and enjoy one of the giftable items in a gorgeous pot of split yellow  pea, red & green lentil, barley and brown rice soup sautéed up with a mirepoix  veg mix and added diced peppers served with whole grain buns, rice crackers and fruit. We made  oat flour! You heard right- we made oat flour for a nut-butter-free bliss ball with coconut chocolate chips and maple       syrup. Then we did a cocoa intense nut butter bliss ball with peanut butter maple syrup and dates. After doubling the recipes we had enough for even ‘the nibblers’ to have enough to actually give some away as the intended gifts of the holiday session.

Big thank you to the Community Food Centers Canada for their funding of this program
