Foie gras, which means “fatty liver”, is butter-rich duck or goose liver that has been especially fattened, and is a popular delicacy in French cuisine. Traditionally, it is seared and made into pate, however, to produce the luxury food produ...

Is a flexitarian diet right for you?

How to choose the healthiest, most sustainable milk alternative

Scientists agree that the dairy industry has an overall negative affect on the environment. For starters, it takes a lot of land, fertilizer and water to grow food for the cows. It also takes a lot of energy to process raw milk, package it and deliver the goods to supermarkets around the world. Then, there is the fact that cows generate loads of methane, which is more harmful to the environment than carbon dioxide. With the dairy industry disrupting the environment, more people are turning to a...
