25 million people are affected with diabetes every year. Bobby Deen’s mother, the infamous queen of southern cuisine, Paula Deen, is one of those affected.
In light of his mother’s Type II diabetes health condition, Deen lightened up his diet and speaks on the importance of being more conscious and aware of what we eat, even when it comes to delicious southern cooking.
