Changing the Conversation: Culinary Techniques to Meet the Needs of a Client’s Diagnosis Without Sacrificing Flavor – for Heart Disease and Diabetes

Join Chef Abbie Gellman, MS, RD, CDN and Chef Julie Harrington, RD for a hands-on culinary nutrition workshop bringing their webinar series to life.

Change the conversation when discussing dietary protocol with clients. Instead of educating them on what they need to limit or “can’t have” per diagnosis protocol, empower them with foods they CAN eat and healthy cooking techniques that can be utilized at home to prepare flavorful food. Bridge the gap of nutrition education with what clients understand about food.

Learn how to educate your clients with evidence-based science, but translated through food along with behavior change techniques. Learn how to evaluate clients’ cooking skills and confidence in the kitchen to set realistic food-focused behavior change goals.

The day includes demos and hands-on cooking time where attendees will be able to put what they’re learning into practice. Refine your own culinary skills to then help your clients.

All participants will enjoy complimentary breakfast and snacks, accompanied by a delicious lunch made during the workshop and will go home with a tote bag with aprons and goodies from our sponsors to enjoy yourself or share with your clients.
