The concept of soul food being whole food melds together the chasm between what is nutritious and delicious. I am an award winning writer and a well traveled, food/social justice advocate. I’ve been cooking most of my life, 30 of those years devoted to healthful eating. Whether from farms and gardens, or ghettos and favelas, fresh, flavorful ingredients are essential to a full and robust life. Follow me on Twitter @robinspar and Instagram @collardsaretheoldkale.
