You'll know if that salad's really healthy ... or not.

NORRISTOWN PA – “Dining with Diabetes,” an educational program for adults with diabetes and their families, will be held on consecutive Mondays beginning Nov. 1 from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Montgomery County Human Services Building, 1429 Dekalb Street, Norristown PA, and continue through Nov. 22, Penn State Cooperative Extension announced Thursday (Oct. 7, 2010).

Diabetes is a very serious and costly disease, but research has shown that those who learn to manage their blood glucose (sugar) levels, eat healthy, and exercise regularly can lower their risk of complications and lead a healthier and more productive life.

Participants will learn how to prepare meals that are healthy, simple, and taste good. Recipes will be demonstrated and those in attendance can help prepare and taste each one. They’ll also learn about nutrition, meal planning, and exercise, as well as how to understand common, diabetes-related medical tests. Recipes and handouts will be distributed.

Advance registration is required due to space limitations. A small fee will be charged. Fr more information, or to make a reservation before Oct. 15, call (610) 489-4315.

The program is jointly sponsored by the county Cooperative Extension office in Creamery PA, and by the county Wellness Committee.
