This week, we got the chance to speak with two actresses committed to giving their kids a healthy start. “Melissa and Zoe” star Melissa Joan Hart spoke with us about the new Kellog’s ShareYourBreakfast.com campaign which is helping to donate meals to children in need. All you need to do is take a picture of what you ate this morning (does not have to be a Kellogg’s breakfast – although I had the cereal with fruit and yogurt this am), then upload it to the ShareYourBreakfast.com or text the # 21534 and the word “share” and Kelloggs will donate a breakfast to a child in need from now until July 31.
Melissa shared that 1 in 4 children in our country go hungry because their family can’t afford to give them a proper meal before they start their day. And as anyone knows, the key to good health starts at breakfast! While chatting with Melissa, she shared some of her kids’ favorite breakfast items – although there seemed to be a difference of opinion going on in the backseat (her kids were chiming in).
Meanwhile, we also got the chance to chat with Megyn Price, who stars as Audrey in “Rules of Engagement” – one of my husband’s favorite shows on TV! Megyn shared some secrets from her home life – it turns out that Megyn is a total foodie who loves to cook organic meals for her family. In fact, she says she’s like Mary Ingalls at home and her friends are always amazed by the dishes she creates for her family.
Listen in and enjoy and then check out one of Megyn’s recipes below. Plus, we’ll be sharing more recipes from Megyn in the May issue of Project You!
MEGYN’S BEST PANCAKES
(We found a pig-shaped pancake pan on a clearance rack — look for a fun shape your kids like. Make a batch of these and keep them in the freezer, separated with wax or parchment paper, in a ziploc freezer bag. Reheat in the oven, toasted or microwave for pancakes even on school days.)
1 c. white whole wheat flour
1 c. all purpose flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 T. sugar
2 eggs or equivalent egg substitute
1 1/2 c. milk or almond milk
1/4 t. vanilla
Mix together dry ingredients. Mix egg or egg substitute, milk and vanilla in a separate bowl. Combine wet and dry ingredients just until mixed (may still be lumpy). Cook in a fun-shaped pan for fantastic pancakes. Top with maple syrup, homemade peanut butter (recipe below) or jam.
** — Use egg substitute and almond milk to make this recipe 100% vegan.
Megyn is currently developing a cookbook featuring all her recipes and we look forward to checking it out when it’s released. In the meantime, you can catch her on Rules of Engagement on CBS on Thursdays at 8:30 pm. ET/PT.
