About the symposium:

Join us for an interactive paddock to plate tour hosted by Dr Joanna McMillan! Culminating in a virtual cooking demonstration with chef Julie Ballard, this symposium will cover everything dietitians need to know about preparing lower priced beef cuts, making the most of leftovers and balancing meals with red meat. Tune in to learn the nutritional differences between grain and grass-fed beef and the best (and tastiest!) ways to buy and prepare different lean cuts. Based on a new framework called ‘Make Every Bite Count’, this virtual event will help you boost your client’s food knowledge and skills and provide practical ways to integrate sustainable eating into your practice.
