Ital is the Rasta way of saying, "live clean and love the earth."
When you grow up Rasta, you're taught that the universe will provide everything one could ever want or need, as long as you lived right by it. Treat others as you would treat yourself and give thanks for the ground that carries you.
It never mattered that our house in the hills of Jamaica didn't have electricity or running water, because there was always a fresh pot of food on the fire, full of flavor derived directly from the earth.
Even though it was different, looking back now, I couldn't be more grateful that my parents taught me how to love natural and whole foods. And now, I couldn't be more inspired and excited for the continued opportunity to share what I've learned with you.
At I & I, all of our foods and edibles are prepared with natural ingredients, whole and fresh foods. Every offering is cooked with love and intention for healing, wellness, and, most importantly - your enjoyment!
