Barcelona is the type of cosmopolitan city that will never run out of people. The masses will go mostly to Las Ramblas (a sort of Catalan Champs Elysees), La Pedrera (one of Gaudi’s multiple houses) and Barceloneta (the most crowded beach in Barcelona).
We’ve come up with this blog out of passion and from the desire of sharing bits of life to those who cannot physically travel. We live in a huge world and it would take us a lifetime and a half to visit it all.
Over the years, food insecurity rates in Canada have remained relatively stable. Statistics show that between 2007 and 2012, about 8% and 5% of adults and children respectively lived in households where food was a problem. Many of these families lacked access to food as a result of poverty. In more recent statistics, experts have it that 8.3% of households in Canada between 2011 and 2012 experienced a lack in food. It is a shocking and unbelievable revelation for many, but it is the truth. Toronto, being the biggest city in Canada contributed significantly to these figures.
Good thing is that we are not helpless in the face of such statistics. Even when facing tough financial times, you still can afford to ensure there is a meal at the table for your family; but only if you play your cards right.

However, when buying perishable goods like meats, you need to have your math right lest you end up wasting away a large portion of the meat you bought to last you a given period of time. Speaking of wasting, studies have it that food worth $31 billion is wasted in Canada every year. This is a whopping 40% of all foods produced every year in the country. Read more

After a long journey with her husband and kids (lucky me), I’m back at my computer. I could not quite let go of my work on vacation.
