Eating with Diabetes: Healthy Cooking Class

Do you know the amount of 'added sugars' that adults can consume per day?  

Women = 24 g (6 cubes or sugar packets). Men = 36g (9 cubes or sugar packets)

Participants in our Healthy Cooking class last week learned this as much more as Renee Scampini, RD, talked sugars, sugar substitutes, and carbs.

Zucchini-Flax Pecan bread is loaded with fiber, omega-3's and protein to help your body digest the sugar that is sprinkled throughout.  Renee's tip if you're trying to reduce sugar in a baking recipe - cut the sugar by 1/3 to keep the consistency.

Renee discusses sugar content of popular beverages while class participants enjoy the feast!
