Collard & Rice Dumplings with Mamba 9 Sauce

To the African Diaspora, Collards Mean Prosperity & Good Health. I am always taken aback when people use judgment-laden terms such as greasy, unhealthy, fatty or "eat with caution" when talking about traditional African American foods or our diet (relating to the cuisine that has evolved from enslaved Africans in pre-emancipation America). Phrases such as "slave food" absolutely make my skin crawl, because although many of the foods that are consumed by African Americans were sustenance for enslaved people, those foods were—and still are—a source of nutrition for all races throughout the entire world. When movies like Soul Food, based upon an African American family in Chicago, are seen by non-African Americans, many of them note how many dishes were deep-fried or looked as if they were drowning in gravy. Yet this movie is only a single small peek into the African American diet and the way food is truly consumed in its communities. African American cuisine is not monolithic, after all.

Environmental Benefits of a Plant-Based Lifestyle

There are a variety of environmental benefits associated with a plant-based lifestyle. Worldwide, food production is responsible for 30% of human-generated greenhouse gas emissions.

The Health Benefits of Jackfruit Will Inspire You to Eat More of It

In the last few years, the vegan community has quickly adopted the jackfruit as one of their own. However, it's actually been eaten by certain cultures for hundreds of years. Not only does it somehow mimic meat in sandwiches, tacos, bowls, and more, but eating jackfruit also comes with a slew of health benefits. It's easily become a staple in many people's weekly meal rotations, because of its versatile nature as well as the advantages that come with consuming it.

The Future of Food Is Vegan

The future of food doesn’t involve slashing the throats of chickens while their eyes are open and their wings are flapping, mother cows crying out when someone takes their babies away, or flaying open fish while they struggle to breathe. That’s because all signs point to a vegan future! We’re fast approaching a world in which plowed farmland will be restored and biodiversity will be re-established. What may sound to some like a benevolent person’s utopian dream is edging its way into reality: Vegan eating is the future of food.

I grew up in the epitome of a midwestern home. Meat and potatoes every night for dinner. My uncle was a dairy farmer and my family wouldn’t dare stray outside of their comfort zone, especially when it came to food. If there wasn’t meat on the table, it wasn’t a balanced meal.
