The latest from the Barefoot Guide
My Food is African
Healthy soil, safe foods and diverse diets
By the AFSA Natural Food Barefoot Guide Writer’s Collective
We invite you on a journey through the farms, gardens, local markets and kitchens of Africa to learn about the unique, delicious and healthy foods and cultures that belong to this beautiful continent of ours.
Many of you may be feeling uncertain, even lost, about how to eat healthily. There are many theories and interests behind these theories, some genuine but many focused more on their profit than your health. We wrote this Guide with your health and well-being as our only purpose. We are not selling anything… this Barefoot Guide is free to download and offered with love and care for every person, every family and every community in Africa (and beyond).
Eating healthily is not that complicated. You don’t have to be a nutritionist to understand how to do so. New scientific research is simply telling us what many of our grandmothers, and their grandmothers, have always known.
Read this Guide to learn from the wisdom in their stories.
