  • Feb. 26: Fantastic Fats: Healthy fats are a key feature of the traditional Mediterranean diet. We’ll look at the role dietary fats play in human health – especially in the context of cancer – and discuss which fats we need to thrive, and which may be detrimental to our health.
  • Mar. 11: Sugar, Carbs & Cancer: Sugar and refined starches may contribute to a biological environment where cancer cells thrive. That doesn’t mean, however, that all carbohydrates are bad. Learn about the different types of carbs, how they may affect your biology, and how easy it can be to eat tasty, nourishing carbs. Also: keto sweeteners & cravings.
  • Mar. 18: Eating Through Chemo: From nausea to constipation, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and taste changes, chemotherapy can throw your eating habits off kilter. At this webinar, Conner will suggest ways to relieve the digestive side effects of cancer treatment and show you some simple, comforting dishes.

Each workshop comprises a roughly 40-minute presentation followed by a live cooking demonstration. Everyone who registers will be sent a recording of the session, Conner’s PowerPoint slides and her recipes – even if you weren’t able to attend in person.

Facilitator: Conner Middelmann, nutritionist and 22-year cancer survivor is a passionate advocate of eating whole foods that aren't just healthy, but delicious, too. With her joyful and practical approach to nutrition – anchored in the Mediterranean diet – she will show you simple, tasty and affordable ways to boost your nutritional health.
