  • September 27: True or False? Discussions around cancer and diet are rife with controversy. Do sugar, red meat, dairy or soy cause cancer? Should you eat a vegan, keto, alkaline or raw-food diet? Juicing – yes, or no? At this workshop, Conner will discuss the science behind these claims and try to clear some of the confusion. Followed by more nutritious dishes.
  • October 11: Optimizing Plant-Based DietsPlants are a powerhouse of nutrition and we should eat them at every meal. However, it can be hard to get all the nutrients we need from plants. At this webinar we'll look ways to leverage plant power without missing out on vital nutrients, followed by a demonstration of nutrient-packed plant-based dishes.
  • October 25: Healthy Eating Made Simple. Do you want to eat a nutritious diet but worry about the cost and labor involved? Relax: Nutritious meals don’t have to be expensive or time-consuming to prepare. Let Conner show you how to eat a nutritious diet on a limited budget and without spending half your life in the kitchen.

Each workshop comprises a roughly ½-hour presentation followed by a 1-hour 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.
