The live version of this webinar was presented on Thursday, March 14, 2019, from 2-3 pm ET, by Abbie Gellman, MS, RD, CDN, and Chef Julie Harrington, RD. 

Change the conversation when discussing dietary protocol with clients. Instead of educating them on what they need to limit or "can't have" per diagnosis protocol, empower them with foods they CAN eat and healthy cooking techniques that can be utilized at home to prepare flavorful food. Bridge the gap of nutrition education with what clients understand about food.

Learn how to educate your clients with evidence-based science, but translated through food along with behavior change techniques. Learn how to evaluate clients' cooking skills and confidence in the kitchen to set realistic food-focused behavior change goals.

This webinar is the third in a four-part webinar series, featuring a new diagnosis that is discussed in Q1, Q2, Q3, & Q4. Listen to the recorded versions:

  • Part 2, Culinary Techniques to Meet the Needs of Digestive Disorders, here.
  • Part 3, Culinary Techniques to Meet the Needs of the Aging Population, here.
