January 4: Eat to Beat Cancer
While food alone can’t cure cancer, what you eat can support your
health through treatment and beyond. At this workshop Conner will explain
which dietary factors strengthen your body’s defenses against cancer
and show you some delicious dishes containing them. A great introduction
for anyone recently diagnosed with cancer or new to our webinar series.
Jan 18: Health Starts in the Gut. To best nourish your body, you need to be able to break down and absorb
the food you eat. Moreover, the bacteria in your gut may support your
body’s ability to fight cancer, so it’s important to keep
these happy, too. Find out how you can optimize your digestion and gut
health and ease some of the GI side-effects of cancer treatment. Demo
of delicious dishes included.
Feb 1: Sugar, Carbs & Cancer: It’s Complicated. Sugar & refined carbohydrates can contribute to creating a biological
environment in which cancer cells thrive; however, that doesn’t
mean all carbs are bad. At this workshop Conner will discuss which carbohydrates
to eat and which to avoid. She’ll also prepare some simple, tasty
dishes to show you how easy it is to eat nutritious carbs.
Feb 22nd: Feeding and Exercising your Bones ! Join Conner and oncology
board certified PT Brandy Whitney from BCH rehabilitation to learn about
strengthening your bones through nutrition and exercise. Cancer and its treatments are major risk factors for bone loss and fractures,
so come and learn how to strengthen your skeleton. Healthy bones need
a wide range of nutrients – not just calcium! Discuss all this with
Conner and Brandy. Then watch Conner make some delicious bone-nourishing
dishes, and watch Brandy demonstrate some bone strengthening exercises.
Each workshop is made up of a roughly ½ hour PowerPoint presentation
followed by a 1 hour live cooking demonstration. Conner will be happy
to answer your questions during the webinar. Everyone who registers will
be sent the recording of the session, Conner’s PowerPoint slides
and her recipes, even if you weren’t able to attend the workshops
