I’m Robin Sparks, the creator of Collards Are The Old Kale and a food & social justice advocate who, like many across the Diaspora, grew up eating a plant based, African American Heritage Diet. My recipes have been featured on ABC World News, The Washington Post, The Houston Chronicle, Food52, Refinery29, The Feed Feed, The Kitchn, Blavity, The Spruce Eats, Grandbaby Cakes, and soulPhoodie. I’ve been cooking most of my life, 35 of those years devoted to healthy eating. The concept of soul food being whole food bridges the chasm between what is nutritious and delicious. Whether from rural farms or urban gardens fresh, flavorful ingredients are essential to a robust life. Follow me at Collards Are The Old Kale for delicious, nutritious recipes.
