Registration is NOW OPEN for our first Eat the Science workshop! Learn the latest science on walnuts while cooking along with us. (And best of all, the workshop is free and you’ll earn 1 CPEU!)
Our first Eat the Science Workshop is just a few weeks away!
What’s better than learning about the latest evidence-based health benefits of walnuts? Cooking (and eating) while doing it! CNC is excited to partner with California Walnuts, where Kristy and Jackie will be presenting a virtual workshop series entitled, “Eat the Science.” The series is designed to bring walnut health research to life through unique culinary application. Join us to learn about the latest cooking and preparation techniques that incorporate walnuts, unique usage ideas, as well as the innovative research that supports walnut consumption for optimal health and well-being. Feel free to view or cook-along to each 60-minute Eat the Science workshop – either way you will receive two recipes and 1 FREE CPEU by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) for each workshop you participate in.
This workshop series is sponsored by the California Walnut Commission.
Walnuts for Well-Being: Recipe Hacks that Save Time in the Kitchen Wednesday, 11/9 from 1:00-2:00PM EST
The busy-ness of the Fall season is upon us with school in full swing and the holidays on our heels. Feeling frazzled and short on time might be a common feeling for many. Join our inaugural workshop and learn time saving meal hacks with walnuts through two unique recipes that can be repurposed various ways in a week, demonstrated by Kristy and Jackie.
The recipes and hacks can save time and reduce stress, but also the ingredients, like the powerhouse walnut, have been clinically studied and demonstrate an emerging role in supporting mental well-being. Walnuts have a unique matrix of bioactive nutrients and phytochemicals that may support beneficial effects on mood and mental health, including polyunsaturated fatty acids, specifically the plant-based omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid. Walnuts are the only nut to provide an excellent source of this essential fatty acid (2.5g/oz)1. Each recipe will be paired with the latest research that has shown walnut consumption and potential support for mood and overall well-being. Recipes will include: Walnut Mexican Street Corn Tacos and Kale Farro Apple Salad with Creamy Apple Cider Walnut Vinaigrette.
Registration for this free event is now open! Attendees will also have the opportunity to win a Ninja Food Processor ($149 value) along with other walnut goodies. Click the link below to reserve your spot and be sure to register by November 1st! The workshop will be recorded and available for any registrants who are not able to attend live.
