Kevin Kimmel, executive chef at Maury Regional Medical Center, will put a new twist on a popular dish and make it into a healthier meal .

“Many of the favorite foods that people enjoy are loaded with unhealthy amounts of sodium, fat and calories,” said Donna Shedd, diabetes program coordinator. “Excessive amounts of these can increase a person’s blood pressure and blood sugar.
