Introduction to 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, sample four dishes, and explore useful resources. 


What You'll Learn

This one-time class will provide a short video about how foods can fight diabetes from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a presentation on plant-based tips for success, and a plant-based cooking demo with samples.
