Reflecting on the ration challenge

Last week I participated in a ration challenge and ate the same amount of food as Syrian refugees do. The weekly ration consisted of almost 2 kg of rice, 400 g of flour, 400 g of kidney beans (one tin), 170 g of dried lentils, 125 g of sardines, 85 g of dried chickpeas, and […]
