As I start digging deeper into our food systems and food injustices that working folks face, the above becomes more and more true.

Vegans, particularly yt vegans, love to say it’s not. But let’s be clear, that for many people of color, it is. A study found that Black folks have to travel 1.15 miles more on average to get to a grocery store than white folks do.

Couple that with high rates of fast food chains in POC communities (food swamps) and you have the injustice of food inequity when it comes to just physically accessing fruits and vegetables, which are main sources of nutrients for vegans.
Now let’s talk about time. Busyness is a huge factor in being able to be vegan. Many folks work more than one job, and sometimes more than 2! To make veganism not so expensive, you have to prep and make a lot of your food. For some people, this is not doable. I have this privilege. I have the time to buy and cook fresh veggies, make my beans from dry beans (which are much cheaper than canned and have way less salt), and prep my fruits to be eaten while at school. Having lots of time, just like having lots of money, is a privilege.

BUT veganism, or just access to more fruits and veggies, doesn’t HAVE to be a privilege. It can be available to everyone, if there was the will to do it.
Firstly, we have to admit that it’s a privilege.
Recognizing that not everyone is able to make the change is needed. Because from there we can start trying to remove the barriers that people face. Whether it’s low access to fresh fruits, high access to non vegan fast food or one of the many other barriers, we can help remove those through policy and community engagement & action. If vegans were more active in changing oppressive systems for humans maybe we could get more people to make more vegan because they would have the access to it. Vegans need to do more for human animals to help nonhuman animals! Intersectionality matters in all social justice movements.
5 Health Reasons to Choose a More Plant-centered Lifestyle:

1. Lower rates of • A vegan diet caused more calories to be burned after meals, in contrast to non vegan diets which may cause fewer calories to be burned because food is being stored as fat.

2. Prevention + management of diabetes • A low fat plant based diet may help prevent and treat diabetes by improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing insulin resistance.

3. Lower risk of heart disease • In one study 82% of patients with heart disease who followed a plant-based diet had some level of regression of athersclerosis. Comprehensive lifestyle changes appeared to be the catalyst that brought about this regression of even severe coronary atherosclerosis after only one year.

4. Lower blood pressure • Vegan and vegetarian diets are associated with lower systolic blood pressure and lower diastolic blood pressure.

5. Increased longevity • Excessive consumption of red meat is associated with an increased risk of all cause mortality and an increased risk of cardiovascular mortality. Low meat intake has been associated with longevity.

Black health is not a game + the government is not playing with Us. There are literally systems in place so that being black + healthy is damn near impossible in certain communities. That's why I always say the decision to take control of your health is a revolutionary act ✊🏽 Revolt! Take your spiritual, mental + physical health SERIOUSLY. Start slow if you need to but start today!

Happy Friday Freedom Family!!!
READ + TURN ON THE SOUND 🔊🔊🔊 Pause + take a few big deep breaths (fill your belly with air 🌬 + close your eyes if you can)
As people of color we endure a lot throughout the work week. Remember to put back the energy you gave out.
Love on your inner self this weekend! 🖤

Okay family let's talk about the destructive things we do to ourselves.

Do you see this fridge + freezer? 👀
Now, this is the same family that will cry, blame white supremacy + be ready to protest when their babies are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD.
But who put that food in there? Who did the grocery shopping? Who's doing the cooking? We have to start wanting to live more than hate wants us to die.
There is enough oppression going on outside our bodies, our organs don't need to be under self inflicted oppression as well. If you want black liberation, liberate your black body first.

I used to eat chickens + the embryonic fluid of their unborn children too 🤮 but that was 10yrs ago 🙌🏽
We all have to start somewhere.

By now we know a plant-based diet is the most beneficial for optimal health, peace for animals + restoration to our planet(not up for debate). We cannot continue to ignore facts and do what feels good.
No doubt companies are targeting people of color, the government is firing from all sides + we got generations of unpacked trauma but we also have the power to decide to change our immediate atmosphere. Turn off Love & Hip-Hop + put on a documentary, choose vegetables instead of chemically processed meat, think positive not negative, be kind instead of brutal, read to your children, limit social media, tell the truth not the lie, remove toxic low vibrational people from your life, meditate. I'm not saying people of color need to get over our hurt + sage everything away. I'm saying let's start by changing what we can. We have more information available to us now than ever before, we need to use it! Decolonizing your diet is an act of resistance + a great way to start. Change your frequency.
We can't do anything for each other if we're dead or dying. .

But when I say people of color are being attacked from every angle people tell me I'm reaching. When I say our food system and every other system is racist I'm called, "out-there" + a "conspiracy theorist." Call me whatever tha fuck you want but my ears hear, my eyes see, my brain thinks and my heart feels. I know the real cancers that plague my community. I won't stop working + fighting for oppressed people because the proof exists and the evidence is real.
PEOPLE OF COLOR ARE BEING ELIMINATED SYSTEMATICLLY + INTENTIONALLY PERIOD.

#BREAKING The #Fairness4FarmworkersAct was introduced TODAY!
When the Fair Labor Standards Act was passed in 1938, it improved life for most workers by guaranteeing the right to overtime pay and the minimum wage. But the FLSA fell victim to Jim Crow era discrimination and EXCLUDED farmworkers from its protections & this exclusion affect farm workers today.
We say 80 years of exclusion from overtime wage is ENOUGH!
This proposed Act would remove #farmworker exclusion from the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of 1938.  Just as the California legislation, it will phase-in overtime pay over a period of four years. Our nation’s 2.5 million farm workers deserve the Fairness for Farmworkers Act NOW! #Overtime4Farmworkers #WeFeedYou @ufwf

"We all know too well the invisible forms of racism in our society. We know the iniquities in income and opportunity. We know the brutal violence and discrimination of the police. We know the shooting of black children. We know the name of Tamir Rice. We know the name of a unarmed black men shot in the back. We know the name of Stephon Clark.
But we don't know the names of millions of African Americans killed every year by an invisible form of racism, a silent and insidious injustice.

This is an often - internalized force of racism and oppression that disproportionately affects the poor and African American communities.

We do know that 1.3% of all deaths are caused by gun violence. And it is real and tragic and needs to end.

But we may not know that 70% of deaths are caused by chronic disease - mostly the result of our toxic food system.
More African Americans are killed by bad food than anything else.

The science is clear - our processed, sugary, starchy diet is the single biggest cause of disease and death - type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer, and even the dementia.

Our food system is the deadliest weapon against the poor and minorities - keeping them poor, sick and fat, hijacking their brains and biology." • • •

My privilege allows for me to live close enough to 6 different grocery stores within 2 miles of my house. ⠀
.⠀
My privilege allows for me to shop around for the best prices and at the stores that fit my dietary needs. ⠀
.⠀
My privilege allows for me to pack wholesome lunches with/for my kids (featured above) each night.⠀
.⠀
My privilege allows for me to remember the wholesome lunches my mom packed for me to eat at school, each day, through my senior year in high-school. ⠀
.⠀
But these are my privileges; these are not the norms. ⠀
.⠀
I challenge you, the next time you grocery shop or pack your or your child’s lunch, to consider your privileges. ⠀
.⠀
What privileges do you have in regards to food? Who can you think of that isn’t benefiting from your same privilege? ⠀

ONE HEALTHY MEAL AT A TIME 🍎
• • •
It's that simple family; no pressure just ONE step at a time. I can't tell how many people tell me that they tried going vegan for a week and stopped🤷🏽‍♀️ A lot of people view "going vegan" as an all or nothing venture, when it really doesn't have to be. Meatless Mondays, vegan till 4, flexitarian...I could go on + on, people coming up with new shit every day 😂
Making adjustments that you want to last in your life is about doing what's comfortable for you + not beating yourself up along the way. For some of us our health journey starts over night for others its gradual.
At my Store Tours events (pictured above) the focus isn't on what you're doing wrong. The plant-based nutritionists + educators are there to give the information you need to start doing things right.
Change can be overwhelming + learning that you've been played by the FDA ya whole life takes a minute to get over. But if you can remember that your health changed for the bad one meal at a time, know that it can be restored one meal at time as well 🙌🏽 • • •

Happy Monday Freedom Family!!
.

Here's just one of the money saving Store Tours Tips from my grocery store program with @ralphsgrocery Store Tours, where plant-based nutritionists + educators teach families in low-income communities how to shop plant-based within their budget 💵 .
.

SAVE MONEY 🤑 + STAY SPICY 🌶

STORE TOURS TIP:
Don't get your spices pre-mixed. Spice mixes are crazy expensive for what you're getting and the same goes for artisanal salts (aka fancy handmade salts😂) You'd be surprised, it's super easy to make these "mixes" yourself with the individual ingredients. For example, instead of buying Mexican Seasoning turn the bottle over and look at the mix ingredients. 9 times outta 10 the individual spice is less expensive sold separately! Make the mix yourself + get creative while you're at it!!
.
.

I'll be posting more tips + information, that way if you can't make it out to an event the program can some what come to you here on ig family✊🏽

I recently read a TIME article while researching racism in modern America (nerd alert 🤓) and so much of what was said in, "Don't Let the Loud Bigots Distract You. America's Real Problem With Race Cuts Far Deeper" is rarely discussed on a grand scale. •
• "We evade the historical wounds, the individual pain and the lasting affects of it all. The lynched relative; the buried son killed at the hands of the police; the millions locked away to rot in prisons; the children languishing in failed schools; the smothering, concentrated poverty passed down from generation to generation; and the generalized indifference to lives lived in the shadows of the American Dream are generally understood as exceptions to the American story not the rule." •
• "[We are disregarded] while all the talk about equality serves as a kind of cover for the actual practices that continue to reproduce differential outcomes for Black and Brown people and protect white class advantage." No matter how quite its kept the under belly of this country is grotesque + barbaric. The silent majority must be challenged. Our History isn't just full of loud racists, it's also engulfed consented silence. •

Peace Family✋🏽Let's talk about conditions in the Black Neighborhood.
Freedom Food Project works towards improving the health of low-income communities + communities of color by empowering them with information and tools to choose a plant-centered diet. However FFP is also committed to the overall wellness of marginalized people; which extends beyond proper nutrition.
There are real environmental barriers and fewer opportunities for physical activity in communities of color. Fewer parks, green spaces, and recreational facilities, making it difficult to lead a physically active lifestyle.
Crime and unsafe playground equipment are common in our communities and because of it families are more likely to stay indoors and engage in sedentary activities, like video games, watching TV or glued to social media. Putting those living in unsafe neighborhoods at a higher risk for obesity.
Low-income families are also less likely to participate in organized sports due to expense and transportation challenges.
So to those of us fighting for the health of the black community we must also fight for its strength, safety, beauty and preservation. We don't have the luxury of one-dimensional activism.
Good health isn't just about pushing veganism to our people. GOOD HEALTH encompasses taking care of all the areas of our community that need healing. #ExpandYourActivism .

Did You Know⁉️ When you purchase fruits + vegetables, several factors affect their taste + price.
Some fruits + veggies grow better in the summer or spring + cost more during winter when they are not as easily produced. So knowing the best time (peak season) to buy certain fruits + vegetables is good for the body + the bank account 🤑
WINTER SEASON❄ (Southwest - California)
Arugula
Avocados
Broccoli
Brussels Sprouts
Cabbage
Carrots
Cauliflower
Chard
Collards
Garlic
Mushrooms
Parsnips
Spinach
Squash
Strawberries
Sweet Potatoes
Chestnuts
Grapefruit
Lemons
Oranges
Tangerines
Kale
Leeks
Radicchio
Radishes
Rutabaga
Turnips

Knowing what fruits + veggies are in season is simple, GOOGLE IT + if you're unfamiliar with some of the food I listed, get familiar family + try something new.
Do you eat with the seasons??

Not only is it a myth, but suggesting that people purchase frozen instead of fresh is just one of the healthy money saving tips you should learn.
Regrann from @food_tank - In fact, frozen produce might have even more nutrients than out-of-season fresh veggies. Just make sure to check the ingredients list on a frozen package, because some fruits and veggies will have sugar or salt added. Source: @readersdigest .

I've said this before but I'll say it again for the folks in the back. 🔊 There is an intangible war going on against black people in this country, and whether you agree or disagree is irrelevant because the systemic oppression of people of color is not only widely documented it's also experienced; every day, at anytime, in any place. We have to wake up collectively. Change the things we can and rise together to change the things we can't. Racism runs deeper than just being called out your name. It is illusive, instead of hiding behind hoods it is now concealed in institutions, protected by politicians and buried in legislation. .
.
.
Environmental Racism is, racial discrimination in environmental policy-making and enforcement of regulations and laws, the deliberate targeting of communities of color for toxic waste facilities, the official sanctioning of the presence of life threatening poisons and pollutants for communities of color, and the history of excluding people of color from leadership of the environmental movement.

Since 2014, residents of Flint, a city that is almost 57% black and notably impoverished, have been drinking and bathing in water that contains enough lead to meet the Environmental Protection Agency's definition of "toxic waste." •

Environmental Racism is, racial discrimination in environmental policy-making and enforcement of regulations and laws, the deliberate targeting of communities of color for toxic waste facilities, the official sanctioning of the presence of life threatening poisons and pollutants for communities of color, and the history of excluding people of color from leadership of the environmental movement.

Since 2014, residents of Flint, a city that is almost 57% black and notably impoverished, have been drinking and bathing in water that contains enough lead to meet the Environmental Protection Agency's definition of "toxic waste." •

This is not a post promoting the consumption of chickens at home vs eating out. This post is about providing information + beginning a much needed conversation about some of the hidden risks that come with eating fast-food. My hope is that having access to information like this will cause you to question why this type of "food" is so prevalent in low-income communities of color.
To believe that the presence of fast-food companies is ubiquitous is uninformed and/or ignorant.
Not all neighborhoods are created equal and it's OUR communities that are saturated with bull shit nutritionless junk food. 🤔
It's quick, easy and cheap for a reason.
Being informed is always the first step towards making change. #pleaseshare



"Recently, DNA testing really blew the lid off of what's actually in the "chicken" of many fast food purveyors. According to a Canadian report, DNA testing highlighted Subway as the worst offender when it comes to the quality of their chicken meat. Subway is now suing CBC based on the alleged findings, however, CBC is standing by their report.

The highlights, or rather the low points, of this DNA testing include: • Subway chicken tested was only 50% chicken. • The other half was soy. • In general fast-food chicken has "about a quarter less protein" than home-cooked chicken. • Fast-food chicken also found to have sodium levels "7 to 10 times what they would be in a piece of unadulterated chicken." This "meat" usage in fast food chains isn't a new phenomenon, either. Chicken nuggets are often one of the most common orders for children eating fast food. An earlier 2013 report titled, The Autopsy of Chicken Nuggets Reads 'Chicken Little, 'ran in The American Journal of Medicine and revealed the real contents of chicken nuggets from two national fast food chains. The researchers found that instead of being chicken meat, the nuggets were mainly made up of fat, along with some bone, nerve and connective tissue."

Activism should be intersectional especially when our oppressor is the same, so don't @ me about animals in cages as an attempt to diminish this message. Freedom Food Project stands proudly in solidarity with the Nationwide Prison Strike. ✊🏽 °
°
°
"The history of our nation is inextricably intertwined with racial discrimination, with slavery. This has been perpetuated since the end of the Civil War with the system of Black Codes in the southern states that criminalize minor crimes, with the Jim-Crow laws during the Reconstruction era, black men were sent to jail.

Today, blacks and Latinos are still overrepresented in our jails and in our prisons. Even in 2018, prison labor is constitutional because the 13th Amendment deemed that if you are convicted, that's the one exception to slavery." •

Number 1. on the list of demands is that prison policies recognize the humanity of imprisoned persons. °
°
°
The prison system in this country is horrible. For-profit prisons incentivize full prisons to the detriment of marginalize communities. If you haven't already, watch Ava DuVernay's documentary 13th on Netflix to better understand America's prison system. .

Whether you're willing to recognize it or not systems have been put in place to compromise the health of low-income people of color in this country. The US and countries abroad have documented the existence of food deserts, acknowledged the correlation between the existence of food deserts and race and income, warned of the detrimental impact of food deserts on health and welfare of residents; yet here we are 🙄

If you're still waiting for assistance from the government, I want you to know help from the top rarely reaches the bottom. •

• "23.5 million people in the US live in low-income neighborhoods located more than 1 mile from the supermarket. African Americans are half as likely to have access to chain supermarkets and hispanics are a third less likely to have access to chain supermarkets.
Area-specific studies have found that minority communities are more likely to have smaller grocery stores carrying higher priced, less varied food products than other neighborhoods.

The inner-city/marginalized peoples diet reflects the limited choices minorities face close to home, the "minority diet" is more likely to contain processed food loaded with fat, sugar and salt.
The the daily intake of foods higher in fat, salt and sugar translates into a nutrient poor diet that leaves people of color living in low-income neighborhoods vulnerable to obesity, heart disease, hypertension and all manner of chronic illnesses related to a poor diet."

I have to be honest with ya'll this is the reason I found myself pulling away from "mainstream veganism" which tends to look at plant-based activism through an animal rights lens only, which literally blew my mind 🤯 (I should've known better 🙄) Being a woman of color has shaped my experiences and growing up in South Central exposed me to injustice + suffering of every kind.
For me plant-based activism is not just animal welfare, it's about healing everything that's effected from consuming animal products; our planet, our communities, our bodies and our minds. We all carry the weight of what eating animals is doing to the world around us. From the immigrants in the field to the unsuspecting moms buying GMO food for their families we are ALL effected by America's unjust capitalist food system. No more hypocrisy.

Veganism has the power to end so much suffering; so let's start healing ✊🏽 What does veganism mean for you? •

Yup, this is going to sound "hippy" to a few of you and that's perfect! If this is new to you my intention is to expand your understanding and if you already know, ayeee fam keep it up + spread the word 🙌🏽
.
.

The healing our communities need isn't going to come from just food banks + clothing drives. We HAVE to shift mentally as well. And trust me I know from my own neighborhood that trying to keep a positive mindset is a set up 😫 Our communities were literally designed to be places of concrete hopelessness. 💡Ah, but... "The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new." Thoughts become things. If you can see it in your mind you can hold it in your hand. If you're not using positive affirmations a.k.a. speaking kindly to yourself, about yourself and your future, start today + start with these! The world does enough shit talking we don't need to do it to ourselves, our people or our communities. •


Do any of you practice positive thinking, meditate, say affirmations, or create vision boards? I'd love to hear about your practices/routines especially if you don't necessarily live in a "zen" environment. Drop a tip about finding your inner hippy + healing in the hood 🧘🏾‍♀️🧘🏿‍♂️

Thanks for coming out @justmia23! So glad you enjoyed yourself. Welcome to the tribe!! •

Regrann from @justmia23 - The Vegan Redz and Bruhs!!! Met these 2 handsome men at the @freedomfoodproject Store Tours event last Saturday. It feels so good seeing my people making positive change for themselves first then spreading it to our communities. .
I still remember how I unaware I was of the damage I was causing to my body with the foods I ate, the products I put on my skin and so much more. And then even more unaware that I was a walking hypocrite. Over here preaching love and compassion and supporting murder, torture and rape with my buying choices. .
Now that I know, I can never not know. So I'm going to speak, post and everything in between until more people are woke. .
And in the meantime enjoy meeting other black vegans, especially Greeks. .

Regrann from @food_tank - In fact, frozen produce might have even more nutrients than out-of-season fresh veggies. Just make sure to check the ingredients list on a frozen package, because some fruits and veggies will have sugar or salt added. Source: @readersdigest .

The poorer you are, the more things cost. More in money, time, hassle and exhaustion.
If you don't have a car you can't to get to the supermarket, much less Costco or Trader Joe's, where the middle class goes to save money. You don't have three hours to take the bus. So you buy groceries at the corner store where a loaf of bread costs a dollar extra.
Prices in urban corner stores are almost always higher, economists say. And sometimes, prices in supermarkets in poorer neighborhoods are higher. If people living in "food deserts" are lacking in supermarkets residents face higher prices simply because of the types of stores available in low-income neighborhoods. .

Food deserts often go hand in hand with food insecurity. Food insecurity means people aren't sure where their food will come from. In addition, they have little-to-no access to nutritionists food and are likely to have unbalanced diets and skip meals. In 2011, 49 million people in the United States alone lived in food-insecure homes -- especially at risk are people living below the poverty line, Hispanics, African-Americans, households with children and those headed by single women. .

Access to a car allows people to leave their neighborhood and shop at supermarkets and large grocery stores outside of the food desert. But not everyone has regular access to a car.
About 2.3 million, or 2.2%, of households in the Continental U.S. live more than a mile from the supermarket and do not have access to a vehicle. For these households, lack of transportation is a barrier to accessing affordable and nutritious food.
A Food Security US Census Bureau Survey, which asked respondents living in "food deserts" whether they had enough food and the kinds of foods they wanted. Those who responded said that they did not have enough food or the kinds of food they wanted.

Race, poverty and food insecurity correlate closely with obesity and diet-related disease; nearly half of African-Americans and over 42% of Latinos suffer from obesity. While less than 8% of non-Hispanic whites suffer from diabetes, 9% of Asian-Americans, 12.8% of Hispanics, 13.2% of non-Hispanic African-Americans and 15.9% of indigenous people have diabetes.
At $245 billion a year, the national expense in medical cost and reduced productivity resulting from diabetes are staggering. The human and economic burdens of diabetes and diet-related disease on low-income families of color are devastating.

Racism is still standing in the way.

Food Justice is the belief that healthy food is a human right, so everyone has an inherent right to access healthy, fresh food. All communities deserve to grow, sell and eat healthy food. .
