A few months ago, a cousin living abroad messaged asking for an Indian diet plan. I told her she doesn’t need one, but she anyway found an Indian site that apparently "reverses" diseases with food (that itself should have been a big red flag) and then sent me an exotic, expensive meal plan that she had been prescribed, full of items like chia, quinoa, kale and other new age, yoga asana-like meme foods. Seriously !
A similar thing happened a month or so ago. Someone who runs a health site asked me to contribute an article. Out of curiosity, I checked out the site and found articles on superfoods like "kale", etc. That was my cue to say sorry.
