This is a double, 2 for 1 class!
Class 1: How Foods Fight Diabetes
The road to diabetes does not have to be a one-way street. There is reason for hope. People who eat plant-based meals are less likely to ever develop diabetes, and for those who have diabetes, plant-based meals can help to improve blood sugar levels and prevent complications. These meals are affordable and can be quite delicious and satisfying. A low-fat, plant-based approach offers a new tool that many have found to be very useful. Review the latest science behind this approach, consider some simple ideas for getting started, see four dishes prepared, and explore useful resources.
Class 2: The Power of Your Plate and Grocery Cart
Let’s get practical. This class provides the knowledge and resources for trying out a new way of eating. By using the tools provided, participants often experience better blood sugar levels, weight loss if needed, and other health benefits within a surprisingly short time. The Power Plate is a diagram that illustrates the essential food groups: vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and fruits. From these groups, you will be assisted to create your own Weekly Meal Planner and learn how to navigate the grocery store to find the treasures (and avoid the troublemakers). We’ll discuss common concerns including how to prevent and treat low blood sugar for those taking certain medications and how to ease your transition into a filling, high-fiber way of eating.
