This blog was created from a few really simple ideas:

1. Food, its preparation & consumption, is a vital part of the life experience of people of color (of all people, really).

2.  Soul food – dishes made with love and nourishment in mind – is the best kind, whether you’re black, white, red, green, yellow, purple or brown.

3. A vegetarian/vegan diet is not a foreign idea to Black people. With the increased focus on health around the world, more and more people are embracing the lifestyle.

4.  Being veg*n means more than eating salads!  We don’t have to give up good food to eat this way. Veg*n food can be just an enjoyable as dishes made with meat, and feeding yourself doesn’t have to cost an arm, leg and your firstborn.

With these ideas in mind, we’ll explore what it’s like to be VWB (Vegan While Black) and recreate some of the comfort foods we all know and love!
