Hello All I hope you are having a blessed day, today I will be doing another book review from http://bloggingforbooks.com/. I received a book called: Soul Food Love: 100 Years of Cooking and Eating in One Black Family, with Recipes By: Alice Randall for free for my honest opinion.
A mother-daughter duo reclaims and redefines soul food by mining the traditions of four generations of black women and creating 80 healthy recipes to help everyone live longer and stronger.
In May 2012, bestselling author Alice Randall penned an op-ed in the New York Times titled “Black Women and Fat,” chronicling her quest to be “the last fat black woman” in her family. She turned to her daughter, Caroline Randall Williams, for help. Together they overhauled the way they cook and eat, translating recipes and traditions handed down by generations of black women into easy, affordable, and healthful—yet still indulgent—dishes, such as Peanut Chicken Stew, Red Bean and Brown Rice Creole Salad, Fiery Green Beans, and Sinless Sweet Potato Pie. Soul Food Love relates the authors’ fascinating family history (which mirrors that of much of black America in the twentieth century), explores the often fraught relationship African-American women have had with food, and forges a powerful new way forward that honors their cultural and culinary heritage. This is what the strong black kitchen looks like in the twenty-first century.
Growing up in a black family we ate a lot of soul food especially during the holidays and a lot of the food id very high in fat and sodium which is very unhealthy. When I had the opportunity to review this book I jumped on it because the book allow you to make soul food that is healthy, a lot of black families that make soul food are not aware that you can make soul food with out all the unhealthy ingredients.
I love the fact that all the recipes are easy to make and delicious, and will keep your family healthy and living much longer. These are awesome recipes to pass down to your children and so on. This book should be gifts to all soul food lover households around the world, the author did a awesome job.
