Dietitians are always encouraging clients to eat more fruits and vegetables. But, when a client asks you what herbs and spices complement their seasonal produce, do you know what to tell them? Each season has a wealth of fresh produce depending on the region you live in. Many herbs and spices pair nicely with the produce but it can be a challenge to figure this out. There are distinctive flavors from herbs and spices that work well together, not to mention the many health benefits a client can receive from adding these to their daily cooking.

Winter is a time to seek comfort with cruciferous and root vegetables and hardy greens. In part one of the series, Winter Wonderland, Shayna Komar, RD, LD, and Chef Nancy Waldeck will provide recipes, tips, and ideas for RDs to use to guide their clients in using seasonal produce. In Winter Wonderland, Shayna and Nancy will highlight:

  • Cabbage
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Carrots
  • Collards
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Spinach

The live version of this webinar was presented by Shayna Komar RD, LD, and Chef Nancy Waldeck, Wednesday, January 31, 2018, from 2-3 pm ET. This recorded version is approved for 1 hour of continuing education credit. RDs should list code 175 for this activity type.
