Last week, we had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with Seamus Mullen, a world-renowned chef with a focus on real, whole-foods, and our chef at this year’s RUNGA Immersion. Seamus is the author of Real Food Heals and Hero Foods, as well as the host of the GoopFellas Podcast.
We started at the famed Santa Monica Farmer’s Market—known for being the largest in LA, and where a lot of the city’s chefs procure ingredients.
The market truly features some of the best organic produce that California has to offer.
Seamus chose a variety of vegetables that stood out to him—not limited to exotic herbs, whole sorrel, summer squash and colorful radishes.
Seamus showed us a handful of his tricks in the kitchen—including his signature technique for rustic summer squash.
The little gem salad featured a beautiful Green Goddess dressing made with avocado and champagne vinegar.
Of course, no day with the RUNGA team is complete without cold immersion and movement.
The workout consisted of a combination of kettlebell swings, heavy carries and fanbike sprints. We ended with ice baths to stabilize blood sugar, reduce inflammation and fully bring us into the present moment.
