Remember that scene in Sex and the City where Carrie reveals that she uses her oven as sweater storage? Well, that was Molly Sims a few years ago. You know, before she added wife, mother and author to her already impressive résumé. These days, she is juggling a demanding career while being a mom to three young kids and she just finished writing her new book, Everyday Chic.

We were lucky enough to get a chance to chat with Sims, and she gave us all the details on her new book and some great tips for maintaining a healthy lifestyle — even when life gets downright crazy.

SheKnows: What’s the first thing you do in the morning?

Molly Sims: I head downstairs and pour myself a cup of coffee. Always needed. Since the kids get up at the crack of dawn, we go down together and start the day. Have you ever tried making coffee while holding two kids? It’s a feat. I’m telling you!

SK: Do you meditate, journal or have any other sort of emotional-wellness routine?

MS: I love meditating and taking some time for myself when I need it. As moms, it’s easy to feel guilty about this sort of thing, but it’s necessary. If I’m feeling overwhelmed, I’ll walk down the beach or just sit in silence and reflect. Even if it’s just 10 minutes, every little bit helps.

SK: What’s your go-to healthy breakfast?

MS: We love breakfast at our house! Honestly, it’s our favorite meal of the day. I love making egg white omelet muffins. To save time, I’ll usually premake them for the week so I’m able to pop [them] in the toaster oven. Turkey bacon is another favorite. There’s actually a whole section in my book Everyday Chic dedicated to breakfast with the recipes I make. I’m telling you — they are so delicious and easy!
