"This class has been so helpful to me. Not only have I learned to cook for myself
and control my diabetes, I have friends and family coming so they can learn to cook
healthy for their families as well. As an added benefit, my A1c has dropped and my
cholesterol is under control. Who knew I could lose 45 pounds cooking like I should
and still eat great tasting foods? " Miller County Right Bite participant.
"I really have noticed being more flexible, having less joint pain and better balance.
I can tell a great difference. I have more endurance now. My balance has improved.
I feel much more confident in my ability to prevent a fall. This is an excellent program."
