Monday, June 1: How to Eat More Vegetables.

A diet rich in vegetables provides not only essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber at low caloric cost but also thousands of plant chemicals with wide-ranging health benefits, including cancer-protective properties. At this webinar, Conner will show you several easy, tasty ways to up your veggie intake.

Monday, June 15: Sugar, Carbs & Cancer – Is There a Link?

While sugar doesn’t “cause” cancer, there’s an association between certain types of carbohydrates and cancer. At this workshop, Conner will explain this link, show you which carbohydrates to seek out and which to limit, and prepare some delicious dishes that contain nutritious carbs.

Monday, June 29: Timing is Everything

Eating, exercising, and sleeping at specific times can optimize your circadian rhythm. This, in turn, is thought to reduce cancer risk (and support cancer treatment), help with weight loss, improve gut health, and balance glucose and hormone levels. At this workshop, I will explain how circadian disruption contributes to disease and how to optimize your circadian health. And of course, we’ll cook something tasty, as usual.
