Tyler Florence Makes World’s Greatest Point: ‘What’s More Expensive — Diabetes Or Fresh Ingredients?’

Former boyband member Tyler Florence managed to avoid disaster on The View during the show’s most panic-inducing segment, Cooking Sherri, but he did drop some church on those who complain about the expense of buying organic (or just produce in general). Cooking Sherri involves celebrity chefs teaching host Sherri Shepherd, who’s in the middle of a diabetes makeover à la Paula Deen, how to cook healthful foods. Personally, we’d live in mortal fear of being held responsible for Sherri chopping off her hand after seeing the way she wields a knife in the segment below. Side note: she also neglects to take the safety tip off her knife, thinking it was just “part of the decoration.”

Anyway, after a medic-free chopping session and a failed attempt at frying sage leaves in an ice-cold pan of oil, Sherri asked Tyler, who’s on a press tour for his new book Tyler Florence Fresh, what he has to say about people who think cooking healthy is unnecessarily expensive.

“To me — and you’ll know what I’m talking about, right — you have to ask yourself a question: what’s more expensive? Diabetes and obesity, or fresh wholesome ingredients? And there’s only one answer: you’ve gotta cook fresh for life.”

First of all, excellent point. Second of all, way to call a girl out on TV, Ty-Flo. Sheesh.
