Powerful Pairings: Elevating Balance, Taste and Nutrition

Date: June, 2022

Speaker: Patricia Bannan, MS, RDN

Pulses, sorghum and grain foods are nutrition dynamos that pair with almost any flavor profile and are sure to please everyone at the table. This is particularly relevant when thinking about family meals. Research shows that increasing the frequency of eating family meals improves the family unit and bolsters individual health and wellness. The data also shows that people who frequently cook meals together at home eat healthier and consume fewer calories. And, emerging research shows that the increase in family meal consumption has persisted since the beginning of the pandemic with no signs of slowing down.

As the country moves into a “new normal” and people get back to their loved ones as well as the activities they cherish most, the desire to find and achieve balance is one that is prevalent. Patricia Bannan, MS, RDN, author of From Burnout to Balance, will provide Registered Dietitian Nutritionists with inspiration and tools to encourage and enable their clients, patients, readers and customers to create meals that will please the whole family. Patricia will walk attendees through delicious recipes that feature pulses, sorghum and grains, and bring balance, taste and nutrition to the center of the plate. She will share practical tips and strategies to create delicious meals that will bring all family members to the table.
