Paula Deen releases new book after diabetes diagnosis

(WIAT) — Paula Deen, the 68-year old southern cooking queen, is out with a new cook book.

Deen joined Wake Up Alabama to talk about her journey to keep the flavor, but cut the fat. After a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes, Deen had to address the issue of cutting the fat and calories.

Her book highlights 250 new recipes, some of which Deen said were challenging.

“I took 50 of my classic recipes that people just adore, and I have taken as much of the fat and calories and carbs out of that as I could without jeopardizing the flavor of the recipe, and some of the recipes are actually better than the original,” said Deen.
