Good cooking takes root: Promoting healthy dietary change through connection to the African diaspora - Model D

Monday, March 06, 2017

The informational session that kicks off each of the lessons serves not just to receive information from the instructor, licensed nutritionist, and DFPC executive director Winona Bynum, but also as an opportunity to swap anecdotal wisdom between participants."When you're raising kids, you have to remember you're helping form their tastes," says DFPC program director Kibibi Blount-Dorn. "It can take up to sixteen times for a child to adjust to a new taste, especially something bitter or with strong flavors, so you have to keep presenting it to them. It can even take as many as twenty-one times if your child is especially picky."I have one of those 21-times children," she adds with a laugh.Tonight's lesson focuses on beans and rice, which is a full-protein, vegetarian, lactose-free means of adding calcium to a diet. The six sections of the class cover: spices, greens, whole grains, beans and rice, tubers and mashes, and fruits, veggies, and healthy lifestyle. The recipes and formulations in the Taste of Africa diet rely on replacing some of the dangerous staples of "soul food"—often high in sodium—with an array of traditional spices from the African diaspora, such as allspice, curry, and cilantro, that might feature flavors that children find strong. But the course doesn't propose radical or unsustainable lifestyle alterations, instead seeking to incorporate substitutions and gradual changes in habits."I came to this work while I was changing my own diet," says Bynum. "It's a gradual process.""I gave up pop a couple years ago," another participant puts in. "The other day, at a church gathering, they had a pitcher of what I thought was water, and it turned out to be Sprite. I took a sip by accident and was horrified by how sweet it was. I lost the taste for it."The class's youngest member does the honors with a spice preparation she helped measure Even small changes to diet and lifestyle can have massive long-term benefits, especially when they are imparted to younger generations. In the kitchen, and under careful supervision, the youngest class member, eight-years old, helps measure out the ingredients for a flavorful rice dish, a chickpea salad, and a Caribbean Coconut Red Beans dish. The kitchen buzzes with energy, women swapping stories, cooking tips, and flavorful aromas. Ben Washburn, MOSES treasurer and representative of Christ the King Catholic Church, helped facilitate the class. "We see education and experiences like this as a foundational way of building a strong congregation," Washburn says. "Just look at this place. Who wouldn't want to be a part of something like this?"It's true that collective food preparation and sharing meals falls increasingly by the wayside in the name of convenience, round-the-clock working hours, and fractured communities. So perhaps it's not only a culinary heritage that classes like this are hoping to reclaim, but one of togetherness, mutual support, and mealtimes as a positive and inter-generational experience. For more information about the series and other future nutrition education series, visit the Detroit Food Policy Council online.This article is part of Michigan Nightlight, a series of stories about the programs and people that positively impact the lives of Michigan kids.
