Not everyone believes the decades-old saying that breakfast is most important meal of the day — including Seamus Mullen, chef and author of “Real Food Heals: Eat to Feel Younger and Stronger Every Day.” “I think breakfast is the most oversold meal of the day,” he says. “I think the most important meal is the first meal you have, whether you have it at 9 in the morning or 2 in the afternoon.”
Enter the big-ass salad, or BAS, Seamus’ favorite way to power up for the rest of the day. He recently stopped by our Stronger podcast to talk about the difference healthy eating made in his life (and to sing the praises of the BAS), and we just had to ask for a few of his favorite recipes. Here you’ll find 10 of Seamus’ favorite salads for fueling up — and we bet they’ll soon be staples in your weekly meal plan too.
