Celebrity chef Paula Deen was subjected to some withering criticism recently when the public learned that she has type 2 diabetes. How could she push butter and sugar-loaded recipes at TV viewers when she has diabetes, her critics demanded.
In Paula's defense, some of her reluctance to change her recipes or acknowledge her diabetes was simple fear that she would have to surrender cooking and eating her beloved Southern food.
It was quite a storm, but Paula weathered it well. In doing so, she has come to a better accommodation of her disease and fashioned a positive response to both critics and fans.
She sat down with me recently to discuss the changes in her life. Come see what's up with Paula in "Cooking Up a New Life With Diabetes," on page 27. http://digital.diabeteshealth.com/read/12/10/...
