Another popular topic was covered by Liz Weiss, MS, RDN at our 4th Annual Culinary Nutrition Conference in 2021. Culinary demonstrations enable dietitians to communicate nutrition information to consumers; entertain their audiences; teach basic or advanced cooking skills; and showcase healthy recipes that are affordable, easy to prepare at home, and flavorful. Gaining the confidence to cook in front of a live audience is a critical skill set for dietitians working in clinical, community, and private practice settings. You will learn the secret sauce to conceptualizing, organizing, and conducting an exciting and engaging live cooking demo or class for both in-person or virtual events.

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.

Click the link below to reserve your spot and be sure to register by November 1st! Attendees will also have the opportunity to win a Ninja Food Processor ($149 value) along with other walnut goodies. The workshop will be recorded and available for any registrants who are not able to attend live.
