Decolonize Your Mind And Your Food

Vegan food gives us an opportunity to look at ingredients and our ourselves in new and different ways. Photo by Shelley Pauls on Unsplash Making a concerted effort to eat plant-based food—whether you are on a vegan or vegetarian journey like me or just looking to insert a couple of plant-based meals here and there—can be overwhelming. The image of plant-based eating has taken an incredible turn over the last decade and a half. There is this image of vegans and vegetarians as wealthy or at least upper middle class White people with tons of cash to burn at their local organic markets. It can feel like it’s too expensive or just too complicated to find what you need. However, plant-based eating or Ital has always been vital for many members of the African Diaspora ranging from the Rastafarians of the Caribbean to the health conscious Black vegan movement that grew out of the civil rights and Black Power movements of the 1960’s and 70’s. The current image of veganism doesn’t accentuate or serve the growing number of Black and Brown people that are actively seeking healthier lifestyles. Truth is complex For decades, Black people have been plagued by numerous health...

Rhubarb an amazing fruit-vegetable worth tasting.

Rhubarb an amazing fruit-vegetable worth tasting.

Different from other vegetables, Rhubarb leaves are inedible! Red stalks, green leaves. While at Ark Organics Uganda; being an organic shop here in Kampala Uganda, with all fresh, green and organic farm produce grocery. My eyes are caught by these red stalks, “is it a fruit or vegetable?” lam compelled to ask the attendant who reveals that it is Rhubarb; both a fruit and vegetable with a tarty juice taste. Well, I didn’t buy it that day, I had to invest in research and find out more about it and the attached values. What l discovered was interesting. It has become part of my diet! Rhubarb scientifically known as Rheum rhabarbarum is called a fruit-vegetable because it can be consumed as a fruit or vegetable. Unlike vegetables like Dodo, Nakati, Buga, Sukuma wiki, whose leaves are the best and highly nutritious, Rhubarb leaves are inedible. They contain oxalic acid that damages the kidney and at times results into death if consumed in big amounts. However, this doesn’t dispense Rhubarb’s red stalks from being nutritiously amazing with great nutrient content and very many health benefits essential for both normal body functioning and growth. It is referred to as a ‘Next Superfood’ because...

Why Is It Inappropriate to Dip Rice into Soy Sauce When Eating Sushi?

Why Is It Inappropriate to Dip Rice into Soy Sauce When Eating Sushi?

Photo by Kelvin Zyteng on Unsplash This was my answer to a question posted on Quora. It is not what a Sushi Chef intended. Each step in making nigiri is carefully thought out and designed to achieve a perfect taste in your mouth. Dipping the rice into the soy sauce will prevent you from tasting what a sushi chef wants you to taste. For the sake of this topic, I will explain how Tuna Nigiri is made first. I will then explain the reasons why you should avoid dipping the rice into soy sauce. Making Maguro Nigiri Step 1: Slice a piece Maguro, Tuna. Mainly, there are three different kinds of Maguro for Sushi; Bluefin, Bigeye and Yellowfin Tuna. Bluefin being the biggest and Yellowfin the smallest, they all taste different. The Belly has more fat and tastes different from the tail, which is the leanest. This means I must cut each part in different lengths and thicknesses. For example, I would cut O-Toro (fattiest belly) very thin, thinner than back meat because a thick belly piece would taste overwhelming from the fat. It requires an experienced eye and taste bud of a Sushi Chef to determine how to cut a...

Organic, grass-fed and hormone-free: does this make red meat any healthier?

Organic, grass-fed and hormone-free: does this make red meat any healthier?

Red meat is an outstanding source of protein and necessary nutrients such as iron, zinc, vitamin B12, and omega-3 fats, which are connected to heart and brain wellness. But while a small amount of lean meat may be great for us, too much red or prepared meat can raise our risk of some cancers. Australia’s dietary guidelines, therefore, suggest restricting lean red meat consumption to a maximum of 455g per week, which relates to three to four small slices of cooked meat the size of the palm of your hand. Organic farming and grass feeding are raised as having some social and environmental advantages correlated with conventionally produced red meats. However, are they any healthier? Organic food is generally produced without synthetic pesticides, herbicides, increased hormones, or the use of antitoxins. Certified foods have met the Australian government standards for organic produce, although there is no one legal definition of “organic”. Organic agriculture can still use naturally occurring pesticides such as copper, sulfur, and pyrethrins (pesticide-producing bacteria) which can also be dangerous in huge doses. However, levels of both artificial and natural pesticides are below and well below suggested levels. These levels are observed and supported by the Australian Food Standards...

However, with the advent of the internet, people can discover recipes online. Yet, most online cooking pages are a one way street. One person posts all the content and everyone else simply subscribes to listen to what they’re saying. The personal element of old recipe sharing is lost on current platforms. Not so on The Jump. “Food Files” is a large cooking group and it includes a vibrant community of people who are posting recipes, inspiring each other,...

Tea: Expectation versus Reality

Tea is the most popular beverage drink in the world next to water. Photo by Alisher Sharip on Unsplash The United Kingdom is known to be a nation of tea drinkers, usually black tea, and people often laugh at their teeth coloured from too much tannin in tea. Tannin is a chemical compound found in most plant and are responsible for the discolouration of utensils, as well as in teeth. That was before the teeth whitening procedure anyway. I am not sure whether The UK, actually drinks more tea than The Chinese, although I know the Chinese drink more green and other herbal infusions, and less of the black tea variety. The History Of Tea Legend said tea was accidentally discovered in 2737 BC when the servant of Chinese Emperor, Shen Nung was boiling drinking water under a tree of Camellia Sinensis. It happened that one of the leaves dropped inside the boiling water, and the result is now an enjoyable beverage we now call tea. Types of Teas Available There are seven main speciality types of tea, Black, Green, White, Yellow, Oolong, Herbal (has many variations), and Fermented tea.All teas are from the main source, Camillia Sinensis tree, a type...

Where Social Justice is Served With a Slice of Pie

Wake-Up Call: You created Justice of the Pies in honor of your late father, who was a criminal defense attorney. How does his legacy inspire your mission? Maya-Camille Broussard: My Dad never rejected the “other.” He had quite a bit of genuine compassion and understanding for each client he represented. My dad either couldn’t afford a babysitter or didn’t want to bother with trying to track one down. So I often went into the police station’s interrogation rooms or meeting rooms when he met with a client. Sometimes I’d be glued to my Babysitter’s Club book and sometimes I’d eavesdrop. (Well, at least to the best of my ability. I’m hearing-impaired and my “eavesdropping” consisted of reading lips from across the room.) Once, I “overheard” a client describe to my dad his version of the events — which may have included a fight stemming from a domestic incident. When we left the police station an hour later, I was wide-eyed and open-mouthed. I said to my father, “Dad! Oh my gosh! Are you representing him?” He calmly replied, “Yes.” “But…did you hear the things he said he did? How could you even be his lawyer? After those things, he said he...
