So, this brings me to something very important. November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. Almost 6 years ago I challenged Chef Bobby Flay to a "Reverse Throwdown" and said that I would create the dish of his choice for diabetics that was low in carbs, healthy and DELICIOUS! To date, I have had no response. I have however, seen shifts in the FOOD NETWORK programming to include several healthful food shows. Back then I was told via email by Bob Tuschman, General Manager/Senior Vice President for Food Network, that they already had a "healthy chef" (there was one woman who was a dietitian I think) and they did not do those types of programs. Well, haven't times changed! Today, I am PROUD OF THE FOOD NETWORK for the shifts in their programming to include many more programs with an eye on good health. I would make up that when one of Food Network's biggest stars, Ms. Paula Deen, was taken ill and diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, the programming shift began. Thank you. Thank you for showing more of what the public REALLY WANTS in this health conscious day and age. Okay, I digressed so back to my point.
November is National Diabetes Awareness Month and I am now issuing a NEW CHALLENGE TO CHEF BOBBY FLAY! After six years my cooking chops have only improved and I want to meet you and BEAT BOBBY FLAY!
