Cooking School for People with Diabetes

If you have diabetes, selecting and preparing foods that are low in sugar, fat and sodium can be a real challenge. 

The Los Alamos Cooperative Extension Service, in partnership with the New Mexico Department of Health Diabetes Prevention and Control Program will offer a series of free cooking classes for people with diabetes.

Kitchen Creations will meet 5-8 p.m., Wednesdays beginning April 3 for four weeks in the Training Room of the Los Alamos Community Building, 475 20th St., in Los Alamos. 

Mary Beugelsdijk, registered Diabetes Educator and Paula Roybal Sánchez, Extension Home Economist will be teaching participants how to plan healthy meals and prepare delicious dishes that manage carbohydrates without adding extra sugar, sodium or fat. 

The class participants will prepare and taste healthy recipes and will receive a participant workbook and two recipes books. 

Each class is different and builds on the previous session so participants will want to attend all four classes.

Program is free, but space is limited. Call 662-2656 for information and to register.
