Almonds: Food for Fitness – a Free Webinar Sponsored by the Almond Board of California 

February 22, 2023

1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET 

Join us to learn from David Nieman, DrPH, FACSM, leading exercise science expert, as he presents his new research suggesting that almond consumption may promote muscle recovery and reduce fatigue after exercise. This 1-hour webinar is free and has been approved for 1 CPEU by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

Engaging in exercise promotes a healthful lifestyle, but even when performed correctly, exercise causes fatigue and muscle damage. Recovery from exercise is important because it leads to muscle gain and improved fitness over time. In this webinar, Dr. Nieman will discuss the importance of nutrition in recovery from exercise and will share just-published findings on how almond intake may support muscle function, promote muscle recovery and reduce fatigue after physical activity. This webinar is hosted by the American Society for Nutrition and sponsored by the Almond Board of California.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the importance of nutrition in exercise performance and recovery from exercise
  • Explain how the nutrients in almonds can support exercise routines and muscle recovery
