Silver Hills and Desiree Nielsen’s Free Community Nutrition Workshop

Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery sells a variety of healthy breads and baked goods. In August of 2022 the bakery hosted a free nutrition workshop at their outlet store, led by author Desiree Nielsen. Desiree’s Good For Your Gut is a bestselling book full of healthy tips and plant-based recipes.

The collaborative workshop’s title was Back to School Lunch & Learn: Sprouted Grains for Happy Bellies. At the event Desiree shared some of her extensive knowledge about health in general. She also gave a short cooking demonstration for attendees to watch and learn from.

The workshop took place in the parking lot outside the bakery. Chairs were set up and there was an awning for shade.

At the event Desiree prepared some of her favourite lunchbox recipes live and in-person, just in time for the new school year. Attendees could also enjoy a tasty sample from the Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery. And guess what? The event was completely free to attend!

All guests who registered for the workshop online in advance were entered into a draw for a prize package worth about $75. The winner received a copy of Good For Your Gut along with a Sprouted Oven gift card.
