From protein to carbs, learn how to boost your workouts by fueling your body the way athletes do.

As the saying goes, a healthy body is made in the kitchen, not the gym. Your workouts are crucially important to your overall health and wellbeing, but are you undermining your hard work with unhealthy eating habits? Are you fueling your body in the healthiest ways possible to get ready for those sweat sessions? And giving your body the nutrients it needs to recover and build muscle? Join Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Tara Moncman of Rothman Orthopaedics and Registered Dietitian Allison Harrell in our Nutrition Theater to discuss how to properly eat to fuel your body. From protein to carbs, learn how to boost your workouts by fueling your body the way athletes do.

This program is presented by Allison Harrell and Dr. Tara Moncman and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.

Whether you’re watching from inside the Nutrition Theatre or from home, you’ll also have the opportunity to share your questions and comments with Allison and Dr. Moncman during the program.

This is a demonstration-style cooking program, so our in-person attendees should prepare to sit back, relax and let our chef prepare the meal while you enjoy the delicious items.
