We were lucky enough to be invited to attend a special episode of The Chew — their 100th episode. After the show, we got the chance to chat with two of the hosts, Carla Hall and Daphne Oz. (Yes, they actually were as fun and friendly as they seem on tv). You can watch a video of our conversation above, and read the transcript below.
For the past six months you’ve had to be in a great mood and ready to chat in front of a national audience almost every morning. Have you changed what you eat for breakfast?
Daphne: It’s not breakfast, it’s dinner! [ed note: It’s 10 a.m. and they’ve already eaten Mario Batali’s 100-Layer Lasagna and Michael Symon’s pan-roasted pork loin]
Carla: We have oatmeal in the morning. I’m a big oatmeal eater. I enjoy granola, and we have the steel-cut oats, the rolled oats. There’s no time to eat in the mornings at our houses, so we eat when we get here. I’m a morning person! I don’t drink coffee. Sometimes tea, but I don’t drink any stimulating beverages.
Daphne: And then she gets here and dances with our audience at every single show. She’s definitely a morning person.
