There is more demand than ever for tasty, nutritious recipes. However, for some patients and clients, a lack of cooking skills can be a barrier to adopting more healthful eating patterns. RDs are perfectly positioned to not only provide nutritious recipes to clients, but also to assist them with the culinary skills necessary to fit the recipes into their lifestyles. This session will help familiarize nutrition professionals with healthy preparation and cooking techniques. Once mastered, nutrition professionals can then begin to develop healthful, delicious recipes and more effectively assist patients and clients in adopting more healthful eating patterns.
After attending this session, nutrition professionals should be able to:
- Identify common culinary skills that can pose a barrier to patients’ and clients’ adoption of healthful recipes.
- Discuss four basic culinary techniques and understand their application to recipe adoption.
- Develop a strategy for practicing and mastering the identified culinary techniques.
- Apply the identified culinary techniques to healthful recipe development.
