HAMMOND---The spice rack can be more than a source of flavor for meals for those with diabetes.
Learn how to use herbs and spices as a tool to help you manage your diabetes by attending a free group meeting, sponsored by North Oaks Diabetes Education, from 3-4 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 7.
North Oaks Dietetic Intern Emma Pittman will share tips for incorporating herbs and spices into your diet to not only achieve more flavorful meals, but also to manage blood sugar levels and help reduce inflammation.

Time for participants to share their own experiences, tips, ideas and concerns also is planned.
