You Should Take Your Coffee Black At Restaurants. Here's Why
By Camryn Teder
Black coffee’s stark bitterness might turn off the majority of Americans, but to make the most of your mornings, this dark beverage reigns king — especially at restaurants.
Rather than fresh cups of milk and cold creamers, many diners only keep unrefrigerated, single servings of cream handy, which can be very unhealthy for you.
These miniature cups are ultra-pasteurized, a process designed to quell bacteria and extend shelf life, and contain hydrogenated oils, sugar, and other harmful ingredients.
Beyond its abundance of antioxidants, black coffee potentially reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes, liver disease, and even Parkinson's — so drink up and reap its benefits.
