Presented by: Tina Marinaccio, RDN
Food is not only medicine, but is the first line of defense in healing, before medicines and supplements. Offering nutrition advice and diet handouts alone to patients does not result in lifestyle change. Americans want to eat more home cooked meals but need easy meal prep. Patients need real and tangible strategies, and manageable steps to facilitate lasting behavioral change. Practical culinary, meal planning, and shopping techniques will be provided to make healthy cooking at home fast, budget friendly, and delicious. This session will review tips and tricks for practitioners to teach meal planning to patients.
