A Spoonful of Sofrito: Decolonize your Diet!

A Spoonful of Sofrito: A pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.

Decolonize your Diet!

Sofrito Lovers,

On Indigenous People's Day (Fuck Columbus Day!), I bring you an amazing book that everyone must read: Decolonize your Diet! Written by Luz Clavo and Catriana Esquibel, Decolonize your Diet is a cookbook, medicinal guide, and political analysis of how the colonization of the Americas distorted native diets.

I haven't read it completely, but I'm in love with it so far! I feel I have to share it with everyone, especially today! Let's honor our native heritage, by returning to our ancestors' diets, food, and spiritual wellness, it'll do a lot of us good! 

Check out some copy from their website!  Check out this book's incredible recipes!  Go taste for yourself! ¡Buen Provecho!  

Decolonize your Diet!

Decolonize Your Diet will walk with you as you reclaim your culture by sharing recipes, cooking techniques, and discussions of ingredients. We believe that food is medicine and we share information about the health benefits of ancestral foods, herbs, and teas. We encourage you to talk to your elders, relatives, and traditional healers in your community to learn from their wisdom and knowledge. We honor cultural knowledge by contributing what we know. We encourage you to do the same.
