Rudolf Steiner referred to the breaking down of our food into its most elementary compounds as an important aspect of our spiritual growth. Proper preparation of our food—in essence, the pre-digestion of our food—can help us do that. This workshop will provide insights into how to support the digestive process with the proper preparation of grains and the inclusion of healthy fats, bone broth, and lacto-fermented foods in the diet. The role of salt in digestion will be discussed. Thirty percent of our energy goes into the digestive process; efforts to make our foods more digestible translate into more energy for us to accomplish our work in the world.
