Introduction to How Foods Fight Diabetes
Sunday, November 17, 2019 12:00pm to 2:00pm

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, sample four dishes, and explore useful resources. This class is also great for those caring for others with diabetes.  Recipes include:  good-enough-for-guests green salad, yes-you-can black bean chili, brown rice and chocolate cherry nirvana smoothie.
