  • July 11: 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 a demonstration of some delicious, nutritious dishes.
  • July 25: Feeding and Exercising Your Bones. This workshop will be jointly taught by oncology board-certified PT Brandy Whitney from BCH rehabilitation and Conner. Cancer and its treatments are major risk factors for bone loss and fractures, so come and find out how to strengthen your skeleton. First, you’ll get a chance to discuss bone strength with Conner and Brandy. Then you can watch Conner prepare a bone-nourishing dish and watch Brandy demonstrate some bone-strengthening exercises.
  • August 8: Healthy Eating for Busy People. When you’re crazy busy or tired or exhausted by cancer treatment, the thought of preparing a meal from scratch may feel like a stretch. Take heart: preparing meals from scratch doesn’t have to be a slog. Let Conner show you how to plan and prepare simple, tasty, nourishing dishes that you can rustle up in 30 minutes max.
  • August 22: Eating Through Chemo. From nausea to constipation, diarrhea, loss of appetite and taste changes, chemotherapy can really throw your eating habits off-kilter. At this webinar, Conner will suggest ways to relieve digestive treatment side effects 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.
