     All about Carbs, Fat, and Protein
      This is a follow-up to our "Everything you always wanted to know about Nutrition but were afraid to ask" webinar. We received many questions about the role of macronutrients (carbs, proteins, and fats) in our diet--how much, what kind, what balance, etc. So we're dedicating an entire webinar to this subject! With Cristin Stokes, RD, LN of MUS Wellness.
      Cristin's Six Nutritional Tenets Webinar   Discover six simple nutrition strategies that will improve your diet and help you feel your best. These tenets are not diet “rules”; instead, they are 6 easy-to-follow foundational principles that can make a big difference in your overall health and wellbeing!

    Everything you wanted to know about Nutrition but were afraid to ask
      Good nutrition is one of the biggest components of our overall health and well-being. Unfortunately, nutrition can be an easy stumbling block, whether due to lack of time, money, access, or knowledge. Montana Meals is here to help. Write your nutrition question(s) to our MUS Nutrition Specialist and Registered Dietitian Cristin Stokes. Cristin will then address questions during the webinar, giving some insight into some commonly sought nutritional advice.
      Interpreting your Wellness Results   You’ve gone through WellCheck. You know your numbers. Now, what does it all mean?

He’ll also help us answer some frequently asked questions people have about their results.
