    Plant Based vs. Animal Based Diets

    What is a plant based diet, that everyone is taking about recently so much? Why is so popular and what makes people to go vegan overnight these days?

    Let’s talk about soups now! Where I come from (cold and furious Russia) soups are a MUST! However, where I lived most of my life (Cyprus), soups are not that likeable… Thinking about it, only 1 traditional Cypriot soup comes to mind - Trahana, and people eat it mostly on 1 occasion during the whole year - Easter night… Why is that so? They say, it’s due to whether differences, it tends to be colder in Russia, UK and Canada, than in the Mediterranean, so locals there enjoy soups more.
