Selecting and preparing foods that are low in sugar, fat and sodium can be a challenge for diabetics.
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 Wednesdays for four weeks beginning April 3, from 5-8 p.m. in the Training Room of the Los Alamos Community Building, 475 20th St.
Mary Beugelsdijk, registered diabetes educator and Paula Roybal Sánchez, Extension Home economist, will teach participants how to plan healthy meals and prepare dishes that manage carbohydrates without adding extra sugar, sodium or fat.
The class participants will prepare and taste 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.
This program is free to people with diabetes. Priority for participating will be given to people with diabetes.
The deadline for registration is Friday. After that date, the class will be opened to others including people with pre-diabetes, caregivers and family members of people with diabetes. Call 662-2656 to register or for more information.
