Taking A Tangy Morning “Tonic” Shot Boost

On top of taking Vitamin C tablets, been immersed in making this tonic concoction in batches to help me with inflammation and to make me feel better about giving my immune system a boost as we are now prone to colds and coughs. To keep any symptoms away it can be drunk cold or hot…

If there was ever a word that we hear a lot of now more than ever is Sustainability. What is it? It is something that can be continued or a practice that maintains a condition without harming the environment. One thing that isolation has taught me it is to look into becoming more sustainable as…

What’s Cooking: Chicken Fakeaway

Really been missing that Chinese takeaway not going to lie because my favourite spots seem to be closed and didn’t want to try out a new place because I like the old ones just fine. So now I’m going to fake it until I make it with my own fakeaway and it really comes close…

A Small Pit Stop in Mkushi

Mkushi is a small town in the Central Province of Zambia predominantly known for its commercial farming and that has been my perception until I spent a bit of time there on the way from the Bangweulu Wetlands. Along the way in many places in the country, one thing that gives me a cackle is…
