• Plant-Based Foundations: Building One-Dish Meals All Year-Round with Laura Geraty, MS, RD, LD
Chef/RD Laura Geraty will teach you how to view recipes as roadmaps. While a good recipe should provide specific directions to get to you to a delicious end point, there are infinite alternative routes that end up at worthy destinations. While preparing two plant-based one-dish recipes, Geraty will discuss the ways they can be tweaked based on preference, availability of ingredients and seasonality, the amount of energy/interest one has to cook, skill level and more. Geraty’s goal is to teach you how to view your current rotation of meals with a new lens, unlocking the infinite possibilities of where each can take you. Never feel stuck in a meal rut again.

• Everyday Low Glycemic Desserts with Mary Ellen Phipps, MPH, RD, LD
When you look at a typical dessert recipe it either has a lot of sugar or is lacking nutrients like fiber and protein. And, when we think about the glycemic impact of a dessert, we ideally would want to see the opposite of this… Lower in sugar, and higher in protein and fiber. So the question becomes how do we make a dessert with this nutritional profile that our clients still enjoy eating? Mary Ellen will break down five fool-proof strategies for making deliciously blood sugar friendly desserts from her latest cookbook “The Easy Diabetes Desserts Cookbook”.
