Today I had the honor to see Paula Deen live at the Bob Carr Performing Center in Orlando. Many bloggers and foodies from the area were there too alongside Paula Deen’s fan club and followers not to mention the Florida Hospital Chefs and medical community as well as representatives of local restaurants that share the interest for a healthy lifestyle and eating habits.

Paula Deen prepared her Sizzling Chicken Fajitas in a New Light, which was also Healthy 100 Approved in addition to 9 other recipes from Paula Deen

Florida Hospital’s Healthy 100 program is a journey to create a culture of health and wellness throughout the community to invigorate the mind, body and spirit to live to a healthy 100 years old. Certainly a great initiative that will impact the lives of many people. But stay tuned because Chef Robert Irvine will be coming to town to share his tips for healthy living on May 19!
