Disclosure: I am partnering with Kellogg’s for the #KChamps program for 2014. Even though I am compensated, all opinions expressed are my own. #CerealandMilk
Do you ever get that run down I’m tired feeling everyday, about midday? I also get that empty feeling almost every time I don’t eat a wholesome breakfast. It’s like my body is trying to tell me something, like I need real substance? Like Kellogg’s cereals that have rebuilding Protein and whole Grains that can recharge my body after a goodnight sleep!
Kellogg’s one of the leading breakfast providers, that is leading the charge to reclaim breakfast at the table. With new breakfast recipes that were unveiled at the Kellogg’s #CerealandMilk Recharge Bar last week, Kellogg’s wants to people to know breakfast is still important. With the help of Chef Christina Tosi and Dr. Travis Stork, Kellogg’s is thinking outside the cereal box to jazz up breakfast. During the opening of the Kellogg’s Recharge Bar, I tried 3 out of 5 Kellogg’s combos from Chief Tosi breakfast creations; The King, Cinnamon Apple, and Berry Au Lait. All were equally great, but unfortunately I didn’t get around to try the Pistachio Lemon or Tropical Mermaid.
When sitting with Emmy Award Winning Dr. Stork, he explains that we need the Proteins the rebuild muscle loss from overnight, and Grains to recharge our body. He also noted that bowl of #CerealandMilk can go a long way, even when topped with fresh fruit or nuts. In turn Dr. Stork advised that skipping breakfast, which so many people do, can be more harmful than helpful to your body. The thirty minutes we spent with the Dr was very refreshing and he offered plenty of insight on the importance of breakfast. Be on the look out for a blog post to recap our conversation with Dr. Travis Stork.
To top off the Kellogg’s Recharge Bar event, the wildly popular band “The Roots” performed a few songs in front a live audience. The full group of Black Thought, Questlove, Cap’n Kirk, Frank Knuckles, Damon “Tuba Gooding Jr.” Bryson, and Mark Kelley jammed out atop the Kellogg’s #CerealandMilk stage. The Roots and a few special guests, high school students from the Philadelphia High School for Creative & Performing Arts (CAPA) played a variety of different songs. Including the Kellogg’s Cereal and Milk song!
