If you are diabetic, picking the right foods can be difficult.
Janet Catron, of Hudson, found out she's diabetic four years ago. So, once a month, she attends a special cooking class at Memorial hospital in Lufkin.
Catron said, "It's fun! I've been coming about two years. I may not always do everything they say, but you can add to it. You can change things around, and it has been a lot of fun."
Class members are taught to stay away from salt, and use lots of spices and herbs instead.
Ethel Ballenger, a dietician, said, "We try to encourage people to tell them that food can taste good. Eat less salt. You can remove fat, rather than adding, by baking, broiling, or grilling."
