with Marissa Chiapperino



Only 15 hours left to register!

People with diabetes often focus so much on carbohydrate management that protein can often get forgotten. It is a necessary macronutrient for managing diabetes. This class will focus on the role of protein in the body and how to incorporate it into each meal of the day for optimal diabetes management. Class is open to friends and family that support you on the journey or anyone who just wants to learn more about protein!

There will be a One-hour education session and Q&A with instructor and registered dietitian, Marissa Chiapperino, in addition to a Two-hour hands-on cooking activity in which you will prepare and take home 4-5 recipes that align with the educational topic discussed this session. Please wear close-toed shoes, preferably non-slip (sneakers will work just fine) and bring note taking materials and 4-5 meal containers to take food home.
