Food for the Soul: Healthy Food Alternatives for Our Culture

Register Online

Indulging in soul food is a staple of Black culture, but what we love to eat can come back to bite us. Join Dr. Mercedes and Chef Phil from Five Loaves and Two Fish Healthy Teaching Kitchen in a guided cooking demo to craft a soulful, nutritious meal with healthy alternatives to our soul food favorites. They will focus on how women of color can stay as healthy as possible by dispelling myths about our favorite foods and discuss ways to manage stresses associated with diagnosis and treatment that can cause overeating.

Our two guest speakers will also teach what foods to choose from at the supermarket, what foods to avoid, easy recipes to try, and easy lifestyle changes to support health.

Please note this program will take place during the MBC Support group for Black Women.
