Chef Robert Irvine Interview On Nutrition & Eye Health

A few mornings ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing Chef Robert Irvine.  Some of you may recognize him as the celebrity chef and host of the Food Network® hit show Restaurant: Impossible.  We discussed the correlation between nutrition and eye health and how a lot of us rarely think that one of the results of poor nutrition is eye damage.   

Many of us know that carrots are good for the eyes, but other super foods such as broccoli, spinach, salmon, blueberries, kiwi, nuts, and mangoes also benefit eye health. With March being National Nutrition Month in March, it is the ideal time to remember to include eye healthy foods as part of your overall nutritious diet, so that you can see your best to enjoy all of the “sights” in your life!

In our interview, Chef Robert Irvine discussed the top foods and recipes that benefit eye health, steps you and your family can take to live a more healthy lifestyle to help prevent conditions like diabetes, insider information on the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival taking place in Miami from February 22nd-24th, and more.  Check out what Chef Irvine has to say about the foods we put into our bodies and how they affect our eye health in the following video interview:

As a special treat for my readers, I’m also able to giveaway a Kitchen Tools Gift Box!  Enter below!
