Shannon Wooton, family consumer science agent, and Sharon Dade RD, LD, CDE, help class participants learn healthy meal planning, managing carbohydrates, and cooking while reducing fat, sugar and sodium without losing taste. Dade said participants receive a workbook and two recipe books, one is New Mexican recipes, in this free class. Another four class session will take place 10 a.m to 12 p.m. in late March and those with diabetes, or caring for someone with diabetes, are encouraged to register to participate. As registration and attendance to all four classes is required, call the Extension Office to register at 575-622-3210. The free class is funded by New Mexico Department of Health, Diabetes Prevention & Control Program, and the New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension. (Alison Penn Photo)
