CHEF WALTERS COOKING SCHOOL
A FREE TYPE DIABETES SUPPORT PROGRAM THAT'S ALL ABOUT YOU
Diabetes Nutrition and Cooking Classes
Chef Walters Cooking School Diabetes Nutrition and Cooking Class is a social-based program designed by professional chefs to aid people with diabetes to learn about the power of food to improve their health and wellness. The road to diabetes does not have to be a one-way street. There is reason for hope! People who eat plant-based meals are less likely to ever develop diabetes, and for those who have diabetes, plant-based meals can help to improve blood sugar levels and prevent complications.
Launched in 2015, DIABESITY Diabetes Nutrition and Cooking Classes are designed to bring a new, research-based, easy-to-follow approach to help people with diabetes in two significant ways:
Avoid preventable complications from the disease
Reduce the need for medication(s)
Understanding the science of food through cooking process
These classes’ main objectives are to empower people with diabetes with information on how food choices promote, prevent, and treat type 2 diabetes and practical cooking skills for healthy and delicious meal preparation.
The instructor Chef Walter Potenza has completed an extensive training program offered through FAND (Association of Italian Diabetics, Milan Italy) and participates in ongoing, interactive National & International educational sessions and webinars.
People who have type 2 diabetes, or concerns about developing diabetes, and their friends and family members will all benefit from these classes.
