My Healthy Morning: Hannah Black and Carla Perez-Gallardo — My Healthy Morning

Welcome to Kitchn's series My Healthy Morning, where we show you how one person greets the day in a way that makes them feel their best. Each post will chronicle how that person defines healthy for themselves, and the habits and recipes that make their morning a little bit better.

We first met Hannah Black and Carla Perez-Gallardo, the artists-turned-chefs behind Lil Deb's Oasis, a year ago this month. We were exploring Upstate New York for our Bite-Sized Guide series. We were immediately smitten with the duo and their vibrant-hued, neon-lit restaurant in Hudson, New York. Smart, sassy, and soulful are words that could be used to describe both the women, their cafe, and their home kitchen.

We checked back in with Hannah and Carla to find out what healthy looks like for two busy restaurateurs, and their idea of the perfect morning. (Sleeping in is involved.)


In California, Coffee May Come with a Cancer Warning — Food News

Coffee is a beverage we love to love and love to hate. Is it good? Is it bad? It's a delicious to some, toxic to others mystery. But if this nonprofit group has its way, your next brew could come slapped with a dire warning — just like cigarettes.


5 Foods You Should Eat When You Have PMS — Recipe Roundup

Nothing sounds better than chocolate or French fries (or both!) during that time of the month, but eating certain foods (like an entire pizza) can actually make your cramps more painful and your bloating worse.

If You Use Sea Salt, You Could Be Eating Plastic — Wellness News

Sea salt is one of the purest ingredients in your kitchen. At least it should be. Made by simply evaporating ocean water, it involves very little processing. In some cases, depending on the water source, trace amounts of natural minerals are left behind, which harmlessly add a touch of flavor or color. But plastic? That's not an extra ingredient we want seasoning our caprese salads and tenderizing our sirloins.


Here’s What That Controversial Documentary “What the Health” Gets Wrong — Food News

If you've been perusing your Netflix library, then chances are you've seen a new documentary, What the Health. The pro-vegan film co-directed by Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn attempts to show a causal relationship between animal foods and illness. And it's not shy about it, either, equating eating eggs to smoking cigarettes. Since eggs contribute to artery plaque-building due to their high cholesterol levels, the film argues, an egg a day is just as bad for you as smoking five cigarettes a day.

But it's not so simple. Because when it comes to the link between food and health, it almost never is.
