Registered Dietitian Nutritionists have the knowledge and training to help people live their best lives. The Culinary Nutrition Workshops support RDs & healthcare professionals bridge the gap nutrition education what clients understand about food.
Our mission is to change the conversation when discussing dietary protocols 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 used at home to prepare flavorful food.
Attendees will spend the day working on their culinary skills, learning behavior change techniques to work with clients focused on culinary nutrition, and network with like-minded healthcare professionals.
