As co-founder and owner of 5 Principles Cuisines. Lanre Onigbinde-Bey's journey in the food industry started at McDonald's, the boot camp of restaurants. He then moved on to become a prep manager at Casey's bar and grill and shortly after Lanre got the opportunity to manage a seafood restaurant.
Like everyone else, he did what he knew. Eating meat was something he did because he did not know better. Surviving on a diet of vegetables seem outlandish but once he got informed on the benefits of eating clean holistically. He could not go back simply because it made too much sense to think otherwise.
