That Bit about Monsanto and Bayer

This is a combination of 2 separate college works, over 2 different years, where I was analysing product marketing in one, and an analysis of how a company goes international in another. It started with looking for information on how a company with such a bad reputation can continue to market its products. Upon further…

Everything you need: Taco’s

Nothing personifies happiness like a warm wrap smothered in spicy beef and cheese, or a plate a tortilla chips piled high with all the fixings. We write songs about them (It’s Raining Taco’s), dedicate days of the week to them (Taco Tuesday!!!), and if your me, dedicate at minimum one meal a week to them…

Meat Packers, Globalization, and Food System Corruption

What does economics, technology, business, and politics have to do with food you may ask? Everything. As if 2020 wasn’t eye opening enough, the state of the packing plants and seriousness of the failures in the food system should make us all reconsider how we shop, who we purchase from, as well as our own…

Lett-uce Be Free

First off: Yes, this is a bad Corona-V pun and it was 50% unintentional and 50% I have no shame and lots of bad jokes bubbling up from too many days of being anti-social and having conversations with my dog… Secondly: I don’t know about you but last weeks heat has got me craving all…

Improving Food and Agriculture Sustainably

It is impossible to be interested in food without having an interest in agriculture, and for me, the passion is fuelled by an interest in both. To challenge one without knowledge of the other is often futile, and in today’s world the correct knowledge is hard to find. Often times agriculture is used as a…

Foraging for the Wild Things

In light of current events it’s looking more and more like my childhood dreams of survival and apocalyptic adventures could actually come true. Sadly I’m not 12 anymore, so the reality is far more scary than that, but the part of me that wants to be that age again is enjoying practising my wild foraging…

Keeping the Sanity

It’s still a bit mind blowing to me that the whole world is energetically and emotionally going through the same heavy shit. There is no doubt in my mind that some of us (if not all of us) are going to be learning new things that we never knew about ourselves before. Stress, whether we…

Divided Breakfast Omelette

Sometimes I forget that the ways I combine food and how I cook are new concepts to some people because I have been using my methods for so long… And it is only because of moving and travelling that I am reminded of my reasons and purpose for sharing my story and knowledge. Several years…

Guilt Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nothing beats a gooey chocolate chip cookie, but it’s even better when you don’t have to feel guilty about eating 4 in a row cause they are sooo good. I found this recipe from the Well Plated Site (Check it out! She’s got amazing stuff!) when I was looking for a good Gluten Free recipe,…

DIY Hand Sanitizer

It is hard to remember that our skin is part of our immune system and that it has its own microbiome. With our genetic makeup including microbes and viruses in order for us to even exist, it is important to take care of each aspect of our immunity. I’ve done quite a bit of deep…
