Shaklee is pleased to bring you the best nutrition articles, with permission from the Harvard School of Public Health, that can help you lead a healthier life. This week we bring you expert tips discussed at Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives—a conference that bridges nutrition science, health care, and the culinary arts.
Each year, over 400 doctors, registered dietitians, and other health professionals join food service directors and chefs for Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives—a conference that bridges nutrition science, health care, and the culinary arts. The annual conference (a collaboration between the Harvard Chan School’s Department of Nutrition and The Culinary Institute of America) was created to teach medical professionals about nutrition and self-care so that they will be better prepared to teach patients valuable skills for leading healthier lives.
Dr. David Eisenberg, Director of Culinary Nutrition at Harvard Chan’s Department of Nutrition and a creator of the conference, offered the following key takeaways, summarizing the three days of instruction:
1. Eat more fruits, vegetables, and nuts in place of processed carbohydrates.
2. Choose healthier carbohydrates like whole wheat bread, quinoa, rye, barley, etc.
