Looking for Chef-Inspired Recipes in Your Kitchen? Start With Breakfast

Restaurant owners spend countless hours fretting over food stock and prices, catering to customers, negotiating with suppliers and supervising staff.  How does a super-busy food entrepreneur stay on top of business and make time for a healthy meal? We asked Megan Walhood and Jeremy Daniels, co-owners of the popular, Portland, Oregon-based Viking Soul Food, and the answer was: Plan ahead and eat a good breakfast!

“One of the things we try to do as busy business owners is plan ahead when it comes to our food,” says Walhood. “Making big batches of soup can sustain a family throughout the week. Even a big batch of beans combined with different veggies, cheese, chicken, fish, etc., will create a variety of healthy, satisfying meals.”

<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – When Oprah Winfrey recently visited me as part of a show devoted to longevity, she asked how I stay healthy and energetic at 86 years old. My secret: a fish-vegetarian diet that includes large quantities of fruits and vegetables, plus an hour of daily exercise.

Even though I am Chairman and Owner of Dole Food Company, I do most of my own grocery shopping, loading up on the 30 to 40 different kinds of fruit and vegetables I eat each week — just a few of which are listed on the chart.

This chart is the kind of information we publish through the Dole Nutrition Institute. To join the 2.5 million subscribers who enjoy the Dole Nutrition News, sign up at www.dolenutrition.com. We report on the latest academic findings, particularly those coming out of our new North Carolina Research Campus.

This is the only campus in the world encompassing eight universities all working together for the benefit of health and longevity. We’ve gathered a comprehensive array of famous scientists and scientific equipment under one roof, including a two-story, 8-ton superconducting magnet that is the only one of its kind in the world.

We are studying all the compounds of every fruit and vegetable as well as the causes of disease in order to help feed the world with knowledge on how to lead healthier, more vital lives.
