Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all. My gift to you? The news:

  • Scientists say that eating foods containing trans fats and saturated fats could contribute to depression. To those of us who have every gone on a White Castle bender at 2 a.m., we know this to be true. (LA Times)
  • Another group of researchers says there is an association between foods high in fat and sugar and reduced IQ in children. Looks like the smart kids eat their vegetables. (ABC News)
  • Louisville’s vegetarian/vegan scene is getting a kick in the pants with the opening of Roots and Heart and Soy on Bardstown Road. (Consuming Louisville)
  • Wonder how much caffeine is in your favorite beverage? The numbers might surprise you. (Food and Think)
