Chef Curtis Stone has partnered with Post Great Grains Cereal to spread his whole-food philosophy starting with breakfast, the most important meal of the day.
In a national advertising campaign breaking this month, Stone shows that not all whole grain cereal flakes are created equal and talks about the importance of eating less-processed whole grains for better nutrition.
Breakfast buffs and whole-foods enthusiasts are invited to join Curtis in the movement to “Keep it Whole” and in a live video chat over breakfast on Wednesday, April 20th at 10:00am E.T. at www.facebook.com/GreatGrains.[ Also Read: Study: Is America Sick of Burgers? ]
Among his many titles — chef at Michelin-starred restaurants, critically acclaimed restaurateur in his own right, judge on NBC’s “America’s Next Great Restaurant” and newly appointed host of Bravo’s “Top Chef Masters” — at the start of each day, Stone is a breakfast lover.
He is passionate about using quality ingredients and teaching others about cooking and eating for better health.
“Breakfast is key to starting the day right,” says Stone.[ Also Read: Why and How to Eat a More Plant-Based Diet ]
