Cheryl Forberg, RD

Making Healthy Sexy -- Flavor First
Presented by Cheryl Forberg, RD One of the nation’s leading advisors on health and nutrition, Cheryl is a James Beard award-winning chef and one of the few professional chefs in the country who is also a registered dietitian. She strongly believes you don’t have to sacrifice flavor to eat well and that eating well can change your life. She is the nutritionist for NBC's "The Biggest Loser”, and has written multiple bestselling cookbooks, including "Flavor First: Cut Calories and Boost Flavor” (Rodale) and “Cooking with Quinoa for Dummies” (Wiley).

Time: 12:40pm – 1:30pm

Lecture and LIVE Demonstration Description:
Busy people often complain they just can't shed those last 10 or 20 pounds. Oftentimes, it's blamed on too much dining out. The majority of restaurant chefs are trained on-the-job or in culinary programs offering little-to-no emphasis on nutrition. Many chefs are more concerned with the eye appeal and the cost of their creations, than ingredient quality or portion size.
Delicious food and a healthy body weight can go hand in hand. Subtle tweaks in cooking techniques, ingredient selection and flavor nuance can create scrumptious flavors while reinventing portion sizes and paring back on not-so-healthful ingredients. This workshop for food, fitness, health and nutrition professionals identifies inventive ways that cooks and chefs can create and provide healthy options to the people we are feeding/training/teaching.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Following this presentation, attendees will be able to:
  • Identify ingredient groups to optimize (and those to minimize or eliminate) in menu planning.
  • Create alternative methods for portion sizing.
  • Implement alternative cooking methods and techniques to decrease caloric content in recipes and menu items while increasing/enhancing flavor.
**Attend this session to be a part of the Q&A section about her involvement with NBC's "The Biggest Loser”, as well as experience the unique opportunity to meet Cheryl and obtain a signed copy of her book, "Flavor First: Cut Calories and Boost Flavor”, at a discounted price.
