Welcome to Dinachi Food & Nutrition


In this blog-based website, we’ve tried to do something a bit different. We’ve looked at healthy, environmentally-sustainable food from a UK viewpoint, but also from a West African point of view. This throws up some interesting contrasts.  And in some cases, contradictions.

We look at nutrition, and the nutritional qualities of different foods and ingredients. And we look at food to help with particular lifestyles and circumstances, for example, dietary requirements for sports participants, for those who want to lose weight, and during pregnancy. We even look at growing your own food, so you can be certain of the quality and origin of what you eat. You can find out more on our ‘Our Purpose’ page.

So why the UK and West Africa? That’s simply the background of the three contributors (so far). There’s more about them on the ‘About Us’ page. Our West African contributor is called Dinachi, who came up with the idea for this site. That’s the origin of the site’s name.
