  • January 17: Healthy Eating Made Simple. Although your diet can't cure or prevent cancer, it can reduce the risk of developing the disease or experiencing a recurrence. At this webinar, Conner will discuss the nutrients our bodies need to thrive and the foods that supply them. Best of all, she'll demonstrate a dish to show you how easy it is to integrate these foods into your diet.
  • January 31: Health Starts in the Gut. To optimally 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.
  • February 14: Sugar, carbs & cancer: It’s complicated. Sugar & refined carbs can contribute to a biological environment in which cancer cells thrive; that doesn’t mean, however, that all carbs are bad. At this workshop, Conner will explain the difference between more and less nutritious carbs. She’ll also prepare a tasty dish or two to show you how easy it is to eat nutritious carbs.
  • February 28: Food Quality Matters. Our food shouldn’t only provide energy, but also nutrients, such as high-quality protein, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, fiber, etc. Unfortunately, many of us don’t get enough nutrients from the foods we eat and this increases our risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, etc. Let Conner show you how to increase your nutrient intake and show you how to make some nutrient-dense 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.
