My Healthy Morning: Chelsea and Lauren of The Financial Diet — My Healthy Morning

Welcome to Kitchn's new 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.

Lauren Ver Hage loves waking up early, working out, and is obsessed with breakfast. Chelsea Fagan, on the other hand, is more productive at night, never eats breakfast, and relies heavily on a pot of coffee to get her through the morning hours.

Drink it straight; pour it over granola, museli, and oatmeal; or use it to make a peach smoothie even peachier.

Do You Really Have to Wait 30 Minutes to Swim After Eating? — Wellness

Imagine your perfect summer day: You sleep in late, make your way to the beach (or lake, or pool), and spend the rest of the afternoon alternating between napping in the sun, eating hot dogs, and taking a dip.
