"I was up early hunting," Seamus said as I walked past his mud room shoes: calf-high boots sat next to a pair of mountain bike shoes. "It’s such a nice time to be in the woods."
Seamus made his name in food getting himself out of the woods. At his lowest point, Seamus Mullen almost died after developing bacterial meningitis. The pain from his RA was so bad that it took him ten minutes before he could get out of bed and then he would move to a chair where he would sit for another fifteen minutes before he could move again allowing time for swelling in his feet and hands to come. After being hospitalized with meningitis, Seamus reached out to Dr. Frank Lipman who has authored several books and is an integrative doctor, addressing emotional, mental, social, spiritual, and environmental influences that can affect a person’s health. From there, the award-winning restaurateur, pushed rheumatoid arthritis into remission with clean eating and a focus on bike riding and healthy living. At 45, Seamus looks ten years younger, and he keeps a wild schedule: writing, riding, speaking and affecting people with food inspiration.
