NAIROBI KITCHEN presents "23 restaurants in 2023 ULTIMATE FOOD TOUR!

"It's 2023 and the first month is almost coming to an end. I know I have been MIA the whole of last year but I want to change all that. Somehow, I don't know what but I kind of lost my passion or rather put it in the back burner as I ran the rat race that is life. After all that time has passed I still know that I LOVE to cook and eat. So to start off the year I will be undertaking a personal challenge. I have always wanted to visit restaurants and kept postponing for this reason or the other. So to get myself motivated, I will start a challenge "23 Restaurants in 2023" this challenge is about visiting 23 different restaurants in 2023! That should be at least 2 restaurants every month, apart from January which I will only visit one so that by the end, they are 23. Looking foward to the challenge and hopefully when it's the end of te year, I will have experienced some delicios food in places I might not have gone.

Who Needs to Follow a Gluten-Free Diet?

What is the description of gluten-free? A gluten-free diet excludes any foods that contain gluten, which is a protein found in wheat and several other grains. It means eating only whole foods that don't contain gluten, such as fruits, vegetables, meat and eggs, as well as processed gluten-free foods like gluten-free bread or pasta

With celebrities endorsing gluten-free diets and numerous studies claiming that gluten is a potentially harmful compound, it’s no wonder that more people are going gluten-free every year. A gluten-free diet excludes all gluten-containing foods. Gluten is a protein that is naturally found in a range of grains, including wheat, rye, barley, and spelt. Even some foods that don’t naturally contain gluten may be contaminated with the protein if manufactured in the same warehouse as gluten-containing grains. Gluten is often added to foods to enhance their texture. It acts as a binding agent and adds extra flavor to these foods. Therefore, you might spot gluten on the nutritional labels of a wide range of food products in the grocery store. It’s even found in some beauty and cosmetics products too.

Starting a YouTube channel was one of the best decisions that I ever made. I have always loved food and this blog was started back in 2017 as a way to share my love for delicious food. Before starting the YouTube channel, I always had reasons (excuses really) for not starting. “Oh, I don’t have a camera,” “oh, I don’t know how to edit,” “oh, what if no one likes, subscribes or even comments?” so many reasons that validated my fear of failing at running a channel. But then encouragement from friends and family and my passion for food exceeded that and I started.
