Cauliflower Rice

Lexington Medical Center has begun to host a new diabetes support and wellness group called “D2 & Me” for type 2 diabetes patients and their caregivers. The meetings, which are open to the public, help diabetics manage the disease by offering helpful information, including healthy recipes. Here’s one from the class. It’s perfect for your next family meal.

2. Microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes and serve.

“D2 & Me” classes take place on the Lexington Medical Center hospital campus, at the hospital’s community medical center in Lexington, or off site for special events. Clinicians and experts who have special training in caring for people who have diabetes lead the classes and meetings. Our next classes are coming up!
