Diabetes will teach you how to reduce sugar, salt and fat in foods without sacrificing good taste. Classes will include demonstrations on how to prepare healthy meals. There will be an opportunity to sample a variety of main dishes, side dishes and desserts. The last class will focus on holiday dishes. There will be door prizes.
This is a series of three classes that includes learning how to manage diabetes, food demonstrations and tasting. Each session focuses on a different food group. The classes are conducted as a partnership between UT Extension and the Tennessee Health Department. There is a $30.00 fee for this series to cover the cost of the food and supplies.
This class is open to spouses/caregivers of those with diabetes as well as diabetics. Also, those with a family history of diabetes or pre-diabetes are welcome to attend as well.
You may call or e-mail to register for the class and reserve your space.
