Cooking Matters EXTRA for Diabetes

May 3, 2018 | 11:30 AM

Western Wayne Family Health Center Inkster, 2700 Hamblim Blvd, Inkster, MI 48141, Community Room

The Cooking Matters EXTRA for Diabetes workshop is a 6-week commitment of fun, interactive sessions presented by trained culinary and nutrition instructors. Hands-on presentations demonstrate the link between nutrition and health, the affordability of healthy eating, healthy meal planning, and cooking tips. Free groceries and cookbooks are included to practice new skills at home.

Cooking Matters EXTRA for Diabetes provides specialized recipes and information for adults living with diabetes and their caregivers. The workshop is appropriate for people who are newly diagnosed as well as those who have been living with type 2 diabetes for years, and those with prediabetes.

Discussions focus on general healthy eating and physical activity recommendations for those living with diabetes, but do not include specific meal plans or carbohydrate counting. Cooking Matters EXTRA for Diabetes is not intended for Medical Nutrition Therapy, nor is it designed to replace a clinical diabetes self-management course.

Registration is limited to one class and is open to adults who have not previously enrolled in a Cooking Matters course. Cooking Matters EXTRA for Diabetes workshops are FREE of charge.

Please visit beaumont.org/classes-events or call 800.543.WELL to register.

Located at Western Wayne Family Health Center Inkster, 2700 Hamblim Blvd, Inkster, MI 48141, Community Room
