Leap Into Incredible Nutrition Education Opportunities-Good for Your Heart and Mind

Nutrition Unscrambled

As we say goodbye to Heart Health Month and February, I am happy we have an extra day to celebrate yesterday’s successes and move onto National Nutrition Month tomorrow.

Yesterday afternoon ENC hosted a webinar presented by Jeff Volek PhD, RD and Kathleen Zelman MPH, RD. Over 450 health professionals joined to hear about Carbohydrate and Saturated Fat: Emerging Research and New Schools of Thought. The information was well-received and we’ll follow up with another post on some of the key takeaways and comments. The recorded webinar will also be available in the next week on the ENC website.

Last night I completed a Facebook forum with Ingles Supermarket. Leah McGrath, Ingles Registered Dietitian and I thought eggs would an incredible topic. Several people jumped on telling us what their favorite way to eat eggs, healthy foods they enjoy with eggs and the nutrients that felt were most important in eggs. It was an interactive evening and participants were really enjoyed learning new information from Incredible Edible Egg.
