Today’s post and recipe comes from our friend Seamus Mullen, an award-winning chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, and leading authority in the conversation on food, health and wellness.
Life is busy. We never seem to have enough time: to cook, relax, or complete all the little errands that are constantly accumulating on our “to-do” lists. Eating a healthy breakfast is a small but effective way to set your day on the right track. Unfortunately, breakfast often ends up taking a backseat or is completely sacrificed because of our lack of time. While I may not be able to gift you extra hours in the day, I may be able to help you better organize your breakfast so you can spend less time in the kitchen and still have a filling and healthy meal.
Life can get really busy this time of year. We all go head-first into the New Year with intentions to take better care of ourselves, lose that extra 10 pounds, or simply improve our health altogether.

I’ve found that it’s easiest to stay on track with my health and nutrition by following these three guidelines.
We know how it goes – you want to eat healthy but once lunchtime comes around it’s just more convenient to grab a quick burger. If you want to eat right every day, all you need are the right tools. When it comes to starting and maintaining a healthy balanced diet, preparation is truly the key to success. Devote an hour or two every weekend to prepare a week’s worth of meals and start your week with a healthy mindset.
