University of Tennessee and Tennessee State University Extension will offer the Dining with Diabetes Cooking School to learn ways of cooking special foods. This program sponsored by UT & TSU for individuals with diabetes and their families to gain hands-on experiences in preparing healthy meals and learn more about diabetes management.
Dining with Diabetes participants have given testimonials of the benefits of this program such as: "it helped me learn healthy ways to cook my food"; " I eat more vegetables now"; "I am now exercising more to balance my glucose levels; "I learned a lot in this class." Participants will be "Chefs for the Day" and get to taste-test the foods they prepared in a healthy way. Benefits are offered in the program that could help people with diabetes enjoy healthful changes to better manage their diabetes.
It is a four-week program that will start on Monday, April 29, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and continue through Monday, May 20, at the Brainerd Recreation Center, 1010 North Moore Road in Chattanooga, Tn. 37411.
