“Cooking Classes on Diabetes”

On Educational program to help people with type 2 diabetes on how to prepare their meals will be conducted in April at the Starr County Extension office.
Learning what to eat, how much to eat and when to eat is a key part of learning to take care of blood sugar levels. Choosing your food wisely can help you feel better from day to day, lose weight if you need to, and lower your risk of heart disease, stroke, and other problems caused by diabetes.
A healthy diet doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself of all your favorite foods. At the “Cooking Well with Diabetes” class you will learn more about what’s right for you – a healthy diet that includes moderate amounts of your favorite dishes.
The information presented is one you can depend on. Classes are based on the latest research and meet the current national standards of the American Diabetes Association.
To “sign up” for the free classes you need to c all the Extension office at 487-2306.
There will be a total of 4-5 classes. The classes will start at 10am and run for about 2 hours and will be held at the Extension office located at 500 North Britton in Rio Grande City.
The thought of going on a diet can make one feel overwhelmed. However, diet is not only about eating less of the foods that you love or about losing weight – it is more about making lifestyle changes that you can enjoy and stay with.
If you have questions feel free to call Yolanda Morado at 487-2306.
