Documentaries For Your Viewing Pleasure

by Rhianna on July 3, 2014

Sometimes there is nothing better than watching something that stimulates you on an eye opening, intellectual level. There are so many fantastic documentaries out there that really don’t get any publicity (for conspiracy theory reasons I think!), and so it is easy for the general public to miss out.

What’s In Your Non-Dairy Milk?

by Rhianna on April 24, 2014

I couldn’t tell you the last time I drank cows milk. Understanding dairy is one of the top 5 allergenic foods, and recognising the fact that I am reactive to it has caused me to steer clear for many years. Luckily, there is a plethora of alternative milk products out there, convenient in tetra pack,
