American cook, cooking show host, restaurateur, author, actress and Emmy Award-winning television personality Paula Deen. Deen is featured in the May 2012 issue of Prevention.
Here’s some excerpts from her interview:
On changing her diet:
“I’m just trying to rearrange my meals—low on the starches and carbs and a bigger pile of things that are almost free for you to eat.”
On Saturday Night Live’s spoof of her:
“Oh my gosh, that made me just die laughing. The girl who has played me a couple times—Kristin Wiig, who did Bridesmaids—I think she is brilliant. I never miss an opportunity to laugh, even if it’s at myself. I need to send her a thank you note.
On Michelle Obama’s
‘Let’s Move!’ Campaign: ”Children are interested in watching things grow. If they help cook their meal, they’re much more inclined to eat it, because they’re very proud of what they’ve done.”
