The classes will be from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on July 1, 8, 15 and 22.

“Cooking Well with Diabetes is a series of four fun, interactive classes packed with research-based information and delicious diabetes-friendly recipes,” said Charla Bading, AgriLife Extension family and community health agent, Guadalupe County, who will present the series.

The cost is $30 a person for all four classes, and the fee will be collected at the first class. Seating is limited, so participants must call ahead to reserve a spot. To reserve a spot, call the AgriLife Extension office in Guadalupe County at 830-303-3889.

Class sessions are:

  • Carbohydrate Foods — Recognizing carbohydrates in recipes and using sweeteners effectively.
  • Make Recipes with Fat Better for You – Healthy fats and fat substitutions.
  • Double Pleasure Side Dishes – Reducing sodium and increasing fiber.
  • Celebrating Sensibly – Special event recipes that are healthy and delicious.

“Participants will learn the most if they come to all four sessions,” Bading said. “Diabetes educational classes are an extremely useful tool in helping someone manage their diabetes. Attending a diabetes education class can help individuals adopt healthy eating habits through nutrition education and meal-planning.”
