“Preparing nutritious foods that taste good can be difficult,” explained Christine Kendle, OSU Extension Educator. “For individuals with diabetes, there are even more challenges as one needs to pay special attention to carbohydrate intake in addition to concerns about sodium, fat, and fiber.” Recipes will be demonstrated and samples provided. Participants will also learn up-to-date information on nutrition, meal planning, exercise, and how to understand common diabetes-related medical tests. Recipe booklets and handouts will be given to each participant.
Dining with Diabetes will be presented by registered dietitian Christine Kendle of OSU Extension..
Diabetes is a very serious and costly disease, but research has shown that those who learn to manage their blood glucose levels, eat a healthy diet, and exercise regularly can lower their risk of complications and lead healthier, more productive lives.
