Give a persona fish, you feed them for a day. Teach a person to fish and you feed them for a lifetime. But teach them to cook the fish in a healthy way, and you may just help them avoid diabetes and congestive heart failure. At least, that's the idea behind the Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine at Tulane University. The center brings together medical students, trained chefs, and local people in the first-ever dedicated teaching kitchen at a medical school. The centeris free to the public and offers classes for beginner adults, intermediate adults, children, and families. Participants learn to cook in addition to discussing nutrition and budgeting tips.

A story on NPR highlighted a study the center recently began, to determine whether cooking classes can actually help people with congestive heart failure (CHF) avoid trips to the hospital. The 18-month study will determine if teaching patients to make their own meals can cut their 30-day readmission rate in half.

Cooking Classes Aim To Help Diabetics

Cooking Classes Aim To Help Diabetics

CSU nutritionists say classes can help people manage diabetes and eat well A chef in a past nutrition class at Colorado State University's Kendall Anderson Nutrition Center demonstrates a healthy recipe. A "Dining with Diabetes Program" begins April 17 at the school. (Special to the Reporter-Herald) The diagnosis is grim: The doc says you have Type 2 or even full-blown diabetes. It comes with dire warnings, perhaps new medications and, for sure, some suggestions for completely changing your lifestyle and eating habits. You know you're going to have to move a little more, eat a little less and cut out all those comfort foods you truly love. But, does the diagnosis mean a life sentence in food prison? No, says Melissa Wdowik, registered dietitian and director of the Kendall Anderson Nutrition Center at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. "Our first piece of advice to people newly diagnosed with diabetes is not to panic," she says. "People automatically think there's a very specific diet they have to follow. Actually, we concentrate more on learning about foods that are healthy, the right portion size and variety. There's no calorie count involved." Beginning April 17 at the Center, Wdowik and fellow dieticians will offer a new "Dining with Diabetes Program." Designed to take the sting out of dealing with diabetes, the program provides information about foods that are not only nutritious and tasty, but easily prepared thanks to instruction in a hands-on cooking class. The four weekly "Dining with Diabetes" classes address topics such as diabetes management, reduction of complications, nutrition education, menu planning, portion control and a student-prepared dinner. "It's a very realistic approach," Wdowik says. "During the four weeks we present detailed meals with Continue reading >>

Type 1 Cookery School

Type 1 Cookery School

Young adults take to the kitchen with Diabetes UK Cymru Below is a short film showing young adults aged 18-30 taking part in Diabetes UK Cymrus first cookery school. Participants were invited to spend the evening cooking a three course Italian meal under the guidance of an expert Italian chef. The evening included talks from a dietitian and a young person living with Type 1 diabetes and covered information and practical tips that could be followed when planning and preparing healthy meals. The evening was an opportunity for young people to come together and gain confidence cooking fresh, healthy meals. The evening was a huge success, with all attendees noting how much they gained from being a part of the cookery school. Many of these young people had little experience of cooking from scratch, and it was a new experience to be charged with whipping up a full three courses. From increased skills and confidence in the kitchen, to a greater depth of knowledge of carbohydrate counting and, ultimately, a realisation of the importance of self management and diabetes care. All that, plus a whole host of delicious Italian food to eat! In our fast-paced society, it's often easy to rely on convenience foods and pre-prepared meals, particularly if you're leaving home for the first time. It's a misconception that people with Type 1 diabetes have got a hugely-restricted diet. A healthy diet for someone without diabetes should be the same as a diet for someone with Type 1 diabetes. That was the message the evening aimed to convey - that the attendees could cook delicious, simple meals to help manage their diabetes, without feeling restricted or bored by their food. It's really nice meeting people and experiencing this - I didn't realise how many people feel the same way and experienc Continue reading >>

Meet The Diabetic Chef

Meet The Diabetic Chef

As a professionally trained chef, great-tasting and attractive meals are paramount to Chris. As a person with diabetes, he focuses on nutrition. And for Chef Chris and his family, summer means backyard grilling is a way of life. To illustrate all three points, his menu for summer is based on grilled kabobs. "To me, kabobs are a great food for people with diabetes to eat. They offer lots of options, and the skewer helps you control portion size. They're a low-fat source of protein and are low in carbohydrates. Kabobs can also have lots of vitamins, if you use lots of fruits and veggies like we do," Chris says. "But to my sons, kabobs are fun to make and eat. They love to choose what goes on their skewers. And they like to eat them with their fingers." Page 2 Chris uses treasures from his garden to round out his grilled meals -- fresh spinach salad, grilled zucchini, and lots of fresh herbs. "Herbs are great way to add flavor to foods, and people with diabetes don't have to miss out on flavor. It's important to create and eat foods that taste great!" "I was 27 when I found out I was a type 1 diabetic," he says of his 1993 diagnosis. "I was in culinary school and had been training at Le Cirque, one of the best restaurants in New York. I was surrounded by chefs who were cooking fabulous French food with classic French technique and lots of butter, cream, and eggs. I was living a dream that I'd had since childhood." Chris grew up in a family that loved cooking. But he began to realize he wasn't enjoying it anymore -- he was feeling tired, losing weight, having stomach cramps, and was thirsty all the time. When he was finally diagnosed, he was relieved it was something he could control but concerned about the kind of changes he would have to make. "I'd just finished culinary Continue reading >>
