Cooking School Offered For People With Diabetes

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

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.

Firebirds Wood Fired Grill – Dim Some

Lois and I wanted to try Firebirds Grill on Gunbarrel Road for some time now, but it has been quite crowded (even during the time old folk usually eat dinner). The lights were so dim I could barely see where the gal headed when showing us to our table. I gathered right away that this must be one of those ‘ambiance’ places you take your sweetheart. It does set a certain mood ... (click for more)

Charles Siskin: Sandwiches

I read in the local paper recently about a sandwich contest and how this one young woman had reached the finals with her blackberry, salmon and avocado entry. That should be reason enough to cancel my subscription. Honestly do you really think the Earl of Sandwich would have awarded that sweet thing anything more than the guillotine for such a concoction? Well actually the only ... (click for more)

When Black Friday Comes

So it’s Thanksgiving morning. You stumble out of bed and head to the bathroom to pee. Push the handle and away it goes (where does it go, anyway?) Better head to the kitchen and get the coffee on. While it’s brewing maybe a hot shower – love that gas water heater, I mean, it heats the water, and lots of it. Now time to enjoy a cup o’ joe and some breakfast while catching up with ...

Roy Exum: UVa --Time For Change

The University of Virginia is, by any measure, one of the finest universities in the world. I have long admired it, whether covering dozens of sports events, cavorting with countless friends, or benefitting repeatedly from the surgical skills of the late world-class humanitarian Frank McCue. But today there is a terrible pall over “Mr. Jefferson’s university” – no, make that a ... (click for more)
