Join us for Nutrition and Optimal Metabolism (Webinar) on Wednesday, September 29 at 11 AM.

Managing weight is much more complex than simply counting calories from our food in-take or measuring the calories we’ve burned during exercise.

To better understand the complexities regarding nutrition and optimal metabolism, join Registered Dietitian and Culinary Medicine Specialist Allison Harrell for this “Digital Dinner Party” during which she’ll share the many factors that affect optimal metabolism, including specific nutrients to support your overall health and metabolism. Harrell will also demonstrate how to make metabolism supportive dishes for you or friends ands family. These featured recipes include Seedy Brown Rice, Quick Lentil and Kale Sauté, Seed Crusted Chicken, and an Avocado and Citrus Salad.

At the end of this session, you will receive an E-book with dinner party recipes and some bonus ones, too. Let’s gather around the dinner table!

By participating in this program, you can expect to learn:

  • factors that support optimal metabolism and weight maintenance.
  • about the factors that influence metabolism.
  • how to prepare recipes featuring whole foods that are beneficial to supporting optimal metabolism.

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