Diabetes is running rampant in America. Is it really a surprise to anyone?? Just take a look at America’s Chefs. Paula Deen comes to mind. She must eat her body weight in butter every month — and then shares her eating secrets with America. Instead of judging Paula Deen, which is tempting, take a look at your own eating habits — and start taking back your health!
Well, Hi, y’all. I’m Paula Deen.
Hey, how’d that get in here?
Yeah. It was my oven mitt. This is the Paula Deen oven mitt. You can eat it. It’s covered with butter and Krispy Kremes.
OK. Hey, kids! Guess what I’m going to rant about today — the irresponsibility of American chefs, period.
Let’s take Paula Deen, just briefly. What she did- there’s nothing wrong with it. OK? Her diet caught up with her. Everyone knows that. Everyone understands that that’s the reason she has diabetes. But for some reason she won’t acknowledge a change.
And this is the real problem with America in general. You know, the idea of taking a personal responsibility, that the fact that a banana has never crossed her path, ever, and she eats probably her body weight in butter every month is the sole reason that she has Type 2 Diabetes.
There’s no “maybe” about it. There’s no “Gee, we’ve got to correlate it with it,” or “Gosh, maybe pop and candy might be the cause or culprit of diabetes in children.” You can instigate all the programs you want for healthy lunches at school, but until the homemaker, until the parents, until the family unit starts understanding that these got to start getting in your life – you have to start using bananas. And not just to beat stuff out of the kitchen, you know? Or you know, as a comedy prop, like I’m using now. Bang!
You got to eat them. You got to understand what they do. Potassium, vitamins, yum! Before everybody starts pointing fingers at Paula Dean, you might want to start looking at your own life. Take a real close look at how you live and how many things you could change in your day.
But let’s not forget that the deals are made every day by drug companies with people like Paula Deen or pick the star du jour to facilitate their ongoing habits. And in my next rant blog, we’re going to go into this running out of drugs and Prozac and Ritalin and all kinds of stuff.
And, oh, my God! Is that a Krispy Kreme? Hey, listen I’ll be back later. Thanks.
