Learn to Choose Foods to Manage Your Blood Sugar

Due to grant restrictions and low enrollment our annual kitchen creations cooking school has been cancelled, so we are offering this workshop in the morning as well as the evening.  

The Quay County Extension Service is offering a workshop; Meal Planning Tips for People With Diabetes. “This workshop is designed for people who could not attend our annual cooking school and will include some of the information that has been proven successful by our cooking school attendees”, says Brenda Bishop, Extension Home Economist.   Topics covered will include the importance of managing carbohydrates, identifying carbohydrates and making our favorite foods work in a healthy meal plan.

This workshop will be offered twice on February 9, 2016 beginning at 10:00 a.m. and again 5:30 pm.  The workshop will last about 1 ½ hours and snacks will be served.  People who have diabetes, pre-diabetes, or who care for those with diabetes are encouraged to attend.  Both classes will be held at the Extension Office located in the Terry Turner Building at 216 E Center Street in Tucumcari.  Please RSVP by calling 461-0562.

The Quay County Extension Service is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer and educator.  If you are a person in need of an auxiliary service to participate in this workshop, please call 461-0562 by February 5th.
