Diabetes is not a part of African heritage.
Neither is heart disease.

Together, we can reclaim health by reclaiming history.

Traditionally, African American ancestors ate a delicious, plant-based diet that was high in flavor and naturally low in cholesterol, sugars, and excess sodium. A Taste of African Heritage is a six-week cooking program that brings this savory traditional way of eating back to life to improve health and wellbeing.

Many of today’s healthiest foods have their roots in African heritage -- leafy greens, sweet potatoes, millet, and okra to name a few. Join us for this powerful program, as we reconnect to those foods and a long lineage of healthy eating that has the power to heal and inspire.

This FREE six-lesson nutrition and cooking program is presented by Oldways on Wednesday evenings, May 10th through June 14th, 2017. Participants are encouraged, but not required to attend all six workshops.
