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 in person.
