Date: September 28
Time: 1 - 2 p.m. (Central time)
As we continue to emerge from our pandemic cocoons, one positive lesson that should stick with us is the importance of family meals (no matter how one defines “family”). In this webinar, we will explore the science not only about what eating meals together does for the family, but also how the meal itself should include perfectly paired foods to “make every bite count” and maximize nutrition while being delicious and affordable. Pulses, sorghum and grain foods are among the most heart-healthy, nutrient-dense and easy-to-prepare ingredients. Besides going well together, they pair with animal-based proteins, fruits and vegetables to deliver all food groups to one plate. RDNs will leave this webinar with evidence-based research to support the cardiovascular benefits of these foods, as well as recipe ideas, tips and strategies to share with consumers.
