It’s still Black History Month and since we’re always talking about food, I wanted to highlight a few African American parents that are shaking up the cookbook industry.
First up we have Chef Bryant Terry. He is a leader in the movement to promote healthy eating and is a father to two beautiful girls. He’s currently the Chief in Residence at Museum of African Diaspora in San Francisco. His latest book, “Afro-Vegan: Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean & Southern Flavors Remixed”. Every recipe in this book looks absolutely delectable. He starts off the cookbook by delving into the taste, textures and spices of the Caribbean, the South and Africa. Each recipe has its own Jazz record to vibe to and I love it. Every meal is authentic and filled with so much flavor. All the dishes tell a story of our roots and we are able to see the connections across the globe and it’s inspiring and most of all healthy! So don’t be afraid to try something new and get your hands on this cookbook.
The next parent I’d like to highlight is one that we are very familiar with and that's Tia Mowry! Her cookbook will be on shelves March 14th, 2017 and it’s called ‘Whole New You: How Real Food Transforms Your Life For a Healthier, More Gorgeous You”. Tia describes her issues with food and how it drastically affected her health. She was diagnosed with endometriosis and dealt with severe migraines. She not only takes us through the right foods and meals to eat but lifestyle changes to truly encompass a whole new you. Now that’s some awesome stuff! So many of us momma’s are dealing with chronic conditions and the key to solving them is tied to the foods we eat. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of her cookbook, so pre-order your copy today!
Both these books are filled with amazing meals and written by some really incredible people. So do not hesitate to recreate these dishes and get in the kitchen!
