This month is World Vegan month. According to a Vegetarian Times study, approximately 10 percent of U.S. adults say they largely follow a vegetarian-inclined diet now. A vegan lifestyle means not consuming any animal products at all. This means no meat, fish, dairy, eggs, or any by-products of these ingredients.
KBCS Producer Ruth Bly spoke with the owners of Duvall’s, Longevity Foods, Murali and Lakita on what it means to live a vegan lifestyle.
The definition of soul food is changing in the African American community. And that change is in part because of African American chefs and bakers consciously creating awareness with diverse healthy food options. We talk to three chefs hoping to make a difference in what we eat and how we eat. Tarik Abdullah is a rising star in the chef world. He recently appeared on ABC’s, “The Taste”. Lillian Hill is the baking brains behind the vegan based treats from Brown Sugar Baking Company in the Central District. Lillian’s husband, Dennis Comer is the owner of a catering company, the urban buggy in the Central District. Comer also has a garden that he developed as part of a 3 year pilot program from Seattle Neighborhoods.
