Our Mission

To empower you with the information you need to make budget decisions without overwhelming you. Food has a lot to teach you and we want to make each episode understandable, relatable, and digestible (pun intended)!

Did you know?

Roman soldiers used to be paid in salt. This is how we came to have the word "sodier" today. Because "sal dare" means to give salt. It's also the origin of the word "salary," from the word "salarium."

Seating arrangements were decided by salt as well. The phrase, "not worth one's salt" was a terrible insult. There are even references in the Bible about how important salt was to civilization. 

Food and finance have always been interconnected.
