Intermarché – “Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables”

Talk about judging a book by it’s cover, it’s truly amazing how much we tend to look at things (and often, at human beings) at a superficial level.

But on the bright side; fruits and vegetables going for 30% cheaper, with just as much nutrients and vitamins as their more “visually appealing” counterparts? A win in my book, for sure.

Updates… And Food-Related News and Articles

First and foremost, I humbly apologise for the month-long absence. In a nutshell; reservist obligations are done (for this year, at least – I hope), and Ramadan is drawing to a close – which means Eid is just around the corner. I’ll be expecting company in the form of great food and equally great family members. Stay tuned for photos and stories; but mainly photos of food.

For now, here are some food-related news and articles from around the globe…
