There's so much to say about the way we look at "health" and what's "healthy" in the US. It's largely centered on whiteness and devoid of cultural foods. I'm southern and hate the conversation around the food I grew up eating. There are huge misconceptions of what soul food is. Too many assumptions being made and shaming of other culture's foodways simply because it's not centered in whiteness.
Reminds me of the time a massively popular food writer casually said that she feels “rice is boring” and prefers replacing it with other side dishes at mealtimes. Like yes, sure, the food that the majority of the planet eats on a daily basis is boring!
Good for you for having the ability to say no to this health foods company:)
I’m with you on not doing the demo!💪🏼👊🏼
I also unsubscribed to Amazon, last month, and I am looking forward to purchasing from local vendors and small businesses.
Thanks for a wonderful read; Happy Spring!🌻
What off-putting requests! Glad you followed your gut!
Good for you! That is incredibly offensive, and you should not be the messenger shaming people about their cultural foods. Also, white rice is the best!
Sorry you went through this. It is a learning curve and you handled it with such grace. Bravo and I can't wait to see more education from you about the food and culture of your heritage.
such a refreshing read!!
