OP-ED: 5 Things I’ve Learnt From My Family’s Mistakes

For most people, living away from home awakens a new appreciation for family and the efforts of our parent(s) when it comes to our upbringing. While I can write up a list as long as my arm of the ways that my family have fought to protect and nourish me while putting up with my crap at the same time, I couldn’t help but try and uncover what it was that made me so resentful and why these reasons took so long to manifest. As a 21-year-old adult looking back at my younger self and knowing all the…See More

Sponsored Post: Fast Facts on Fat, An Essential Part of Our Diet

The low-fat food trend has been around for the past four decades, leading to an increase in highly processed foods, stripped of fat, but filled with sugar and other unnatural fillers. Despite the reduction in fat consumption, obesity has risen in the western world by 30% in this time. This suggests the low-fat food push seems to have negatively impacted diet related disease rates and that highly processed low-fat foods may actually be the cause of this epidemic. Governments, educators, some…See More

FEATURE: Book - Treat Your Taste Buds With 'Afro-Vegan: Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean, and Southern Flavors Remixed'

Posted on March 19, 2014 at 10:00am 9 Comments
