This week on Chewing, co-hosts Louisa Chu and Monica Eng crack some eggs! Who doesn’t love a runny yolk fried egg? Even newly outed PVPO (Personally Vegan Professionally Omnivorous) Louisa does, but what about the scramble on big ethical issues? Monica talks to Josh Balk, senior director of food policy at The Humane Society of the United States. And FOC (Friend of Chewing) Ben Roche, Research and Development chef at Hampton Creek, gives a sneak peek at the future of egg-free foods from the makers of Just Mayo. Then Louisa brings in a thousand-year-old egg, aka century egg, while Monica digs up a forgotten egg tart, But Will She Eat It?

Welcome to Chewing! In this premiere episode, co-hosts Louisa Chu and Monica Eng are Coming Out. Monica talks with Dr. Boyd Eaton, one of the godfathers of Paleolithic nutrition, the so-called caveman diet, who now controversially says cut the meat to save the future. Then she asks the world’s top nutrition experts for their ideal breakfasts. Plus Louisa makes a big coming out announcement: she’s PVPO (Personally Vegan, Professionally Omnivorous). And to celebrate Fat Thursday / Fat Tuesday and our big, fat, first episode, she brings Monica, noted sweets and alcohol hater, and Chewing producer Iris Lin, moonshine & lemon curd paczki, but Will She Eat It?
