Ingrid began writing Exoskeleto to keep a mobile record of his geographically spread family. “The blog is mostly about food,” says Ingrid, “which is fitting because our family gathers most often around the dinner table, but it also features other topics often discussed in the family: poetry, religion, politics, music, and each of our adventures with mental health. The blog is also a window into the family life of a group of unconventional but well-matched individuals. ”

Since then, she has been trying to get as much of her food as possible first-hand, and writes of the trials – and errors – of learning to fish and hunt, garden and forage.
