Do a diabetes-friendly diet with ideas from workshop

Recipe cardsThe Purcell Public Library’s Healthy Challenge series continues in November with a look at resources for dealing with diabetes, at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, at the library.

The workshop focuses specifically on putting together a diabetes-friendly diet and will cover the basics of a diabetes-friendly diet and will showcase simple recipes that can be integrated into everyday meal preparation. Representatives from the McClain County OSU Extension Service will lead the program.

Those taking part in the challenge will be asked to follow the MyPlate plan for at least three meals a week, sharing what they learn at this program with a friend or family member and use the Pioneer Library System Connect App to download a new recipe book.

The library’s eight-month Healthy Challenge is provided through a grant from the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and Institute of Museum and Library Services, as well as multiple community partners.

Ages 18 and up may participate, and registration is required in advance.
