Robert Irvine’s Tips for Healthy Eating

by in Healthy Tips, September 4, 2012

Restaurant: Impossible host Robert Irvine calls his diet “clean and super.” And his passion for clean eating is not surprising considering he chatted with us at a recent event in his workout gear. Though he’s often on the road filming a new episode or making appearances, he keeps his eating habits in check with these easy tips:

1. Snack Right: Robert snacks on almonds, oatmeal and egg whites. He also makes a “peanut butter hummus” (if you’re curious, try Alton’s recipe) that’s chock full of protein.

2. Protein-Pack Your Breakfast: Robert eats oatmeal the minute he wakes up, then has a serving of protein: either egg whites or turkey bacon and whole-wheat toast.

3. Make Time for a Midday Meal: Lunch for Robert is often hummus with chicken salad (no mayo) and sliced cucumbers. His version of deviled eggs are “without the yolk. Instead I add cucumber, onion and a protein like low-fat cheese or meat–those are my Scooby snacks,” he says.

4. Stay Healthy on the Road: Robert and his team eat in some of the worst places as far as healthy food offerings go while they film new episodes but, Robert reminds us, “you don’t have to accept mediocre food, ask for something healthy wherever you are, like a hard-boiled egg.”

5. Keep Moving: Robert tries to get in a workout every day noting, “whether it’s pushups in a parking lot or a full gym session, exercise wherever you are.”

6. Splurge: Like everyone, Robert has diet weaknesses. He let us in on his latest splurge: beer and cheese steak.

    Healthy fats or not, they're still fats. Being that mayonnaise is pretty much nothing but whipped oil, fat is the only thing its got going for it. The idea is to substitute pure "healthy fats" with more substantial foods like almonds which are high in protein, fiber, and healthy fats. Which i would imagine is why they're in his diet. Talk to any nutritionist or dietitian and they'll say it's okay in moderation, but then again so are M&Ms.

      Also, many store bought mayos are full of high-fructose corn-syrup, which I don't really want to put in my body.

        When I tried the Atkins Diet many years ago I learned that "Dukes" mayo is the only one on the market that has no sugars in it. Just FYI……

    Most of my blog posts address this. I'm training for a figure competition and am eating 7 meals a day with TONS of protein. I refuse to believe anyone who says clean eating can't be just as good as what most consider "regular" eating. (if not better)!

    Try Oscar Meyer Turkey Bacon.

    whey protein, mix in milk or water, why not in coffee? vanilla would lighten it, while choc would make it a mocha. other flavors available as well.

    There is! It's called Chike and it's a coffee protein powder. Makes an awesome frapp.

    I don't know if this is everywhere – I live in the northeast – but try Ed Hipps turkey bacon. I've converted pork/beef bacon eaters with this brand. Very yummy.

    I eat steel cut oatmeal every morning and add almonds and chopped pears or apples.
