Welcome to Veggie-it.com

We eat. Therefore we are. Our health, wellness, philosophy and indeed our politics are all shaped by the choices we make on the kinds of food we eat, foods we buy, the manner in which we prepare them and who we invite home for a meal or go out to dinner with.

In Veggie-it.com we explore topics of personal interest to us in the Food for Thought section that includes topics on food science, food philosophy, nutrition and food politics.

We share some Home Remedies, Recipes with a Twist and some fun Videos. We have a whole section describing ingredients you have in your kitchen. Herbs & Spices; Lentils & Grains, Fruits & Vegetables and more.
