MFOB featured book: Eating From Our Roots
The typical American diet is heavy in added sugars, salts, and synthetic fats, but one-size-fits-all nutrition plans often leave us uninspired. There’s a more delicious way to eat sustainably and healthfully: by getting back to flavorful traditional cooking methods from cultures around the world, including the Caribbean, South America, Africa, the Mediterranean, and Asia.
Registered dietitian and nutritionist Maya Feller is known for her approachable, real-food-based solutions to making informed food choices that support health and longevity. In this deeply personal cookbook inspired by Feller’s visits to her grandparents in Trinidad and Tobago and annual trips to the Caribbean and western Africa, she highlights nourishing dishes from around the world, focusing on whole and minimally processed ingredients. Feller shares realistic ways to think about how we relate to food, along with nutrition tips, plant-based substitutions, and meals that can be made in thirty minutes or less. In Eating From Our Roots, Feller makes it easy to enjoy the vibrant flavors of your favorite cuisine with over eighty recipes for any meal of the day
