Hi everyone, If you’ve been following my account on Instagram, you would be familiar with the food-history tidbits that I have been sharing for a while now 🙂 I have a huge interest in food from a historical & anthropological perspective, and reading up on the subject is something I’ve been doing for the past…

PLANT-BASED 101 (2019 edition)

Last year, I shared a “guide” of some sorts for those interested in going fully or partially plant-based. I also wrote a few other things about all the awesome perks that come with eating plant-based here, which include things like better digestion, clearer skin, saying farewell to bad breath in the mornings and the surge in…

This idea came to me just before going to bed one night- I had to jot it…
