Black Communities Need Access to Healthy Food

One person standing up for food justice can cause a domino effect.

Historically, oppression and systemic injustices have been a collective experience among Black people living in the United States.

The United States was built on indigenous land on the backs of Black people. This is not new information. Yet, this inherited trauma is still influencing our present-day lives.

Simply put, what’s required to be well and thrive aren’t available for all Black people.

Foods that are commonly associated with Black American culture are often unfairly deemed as unhealthy.

Today’s fast-food versions of fried chicken and cured meats are a distant cousin of the delicacies that were enjoyed on special occasions throughout the old agricultural south.

Home cooks of the past were creative and seasoned greens with the ends of cured meats or slow cooked the less desirable cuts because this is what they had access to.

It’s no accident

16 healthy chicken dinner ideas that are anything but boring

Chicken is America’s go-to dinner protein for many good reasons: It’s easy, affordable and popular with kids and adults alike.

And when you don’t add a ton of saturated fat or salt when you cook it, it’s a very healthy meat. The only problem with chicken being everyone’s go-to food is that it can get a little boring, especially if you make the same handful of chicken recipes every week.

If your chicken routine is getting a little ho-hum, wake it up with one of these delicious dishes, including stews, tacos, stir-fries, lighter Cajun pasta, and an oven-fried version of chicken nuggets. There’s enough variety here to make you want to eat chicken every night — and there’s no reason not to with dishes that are this nutritious and delicious!

7 Organic Food Stocks for Healthy Portfolios: HAIN, LWAY, SFM

One of the silver linings that came out of this otherwise terrible novel coronavirus pandemic is the emphasis on health. Yes, there is the component of people rushing toward hardware stores to stock up on N95 masks. That’s not what I’m talking about. Instead, the bullish narrative for organic food stocks has increased due to their underlying positive health implications.

Further, investors should really consider this sector as it will likely garner more demand beyond the pandemic. First and foremost, millennials represent the largest generation in the U.S. labor force. Say what you want about them regarding their perceived apathy. For businesses, it simply doesn’t make sense to market mass-scale products with baby boomers in mind.

As you know, millennials have particular ways of spending money. Sure, they may not be buying homes at the same rate as older generations. Nevertheless, younger Americans spend on products that matter to them.

An Undiscovered, High-Quality Play on the Healthy Foods Megatrend

I used to read headlines about the rise of veganism, and scoff at them.

As a big meat-eater who thoroughly enjoys steak dinners and In-N-Out burgers, I couldn’t possibly imagine a meat-free future devoid of such pleasures.

Until I started to see the vegan megatrend unfold right before my eyes.

In the past year alone, I have seen dozens of close friends go vegan and stay vegan. I’ve seen many celebrities — including star athletes like NBA superstar Kyrie Irving and Tennis legend Venus Williams — adopt vegan diets.

Yes, I’ve even made the plunge to trying plant-based meats myself — and guess what?

They’re pretty good.

Of course, I still eat my In-N-Out burgers. I still have steak dinners. But… I also mix in the occasional plant-based meat when I can (maybe once or twice a week).

For young consumers, this seems to be the norm.

A healthy dose of justice: When the vaccine comes, a COVID vulnerability index can help achieve both

There’s been lively discussion about whether people will be willing to take a vaccine for COVID-19 when it becomes available. It’s a question each of us will have to answer for ourselves sooner or later. But the debate obscures a more complex reality: when an effective and safe vaccine finally arrives, it will initially be in scarce supply. No country or business has the manufacturing capacity to quickly provide enough doses for an entire population.

The big question we should be considering, therefore, is who should get vaccinated first, and who should be next in line thereafter? Do certain groups within the population deserve priority over others? And if so, what considerations should influence these decisions?

This is not the first time we’ve been faced with this type of “allocation problem.” Typically, vaccine allocation decisions are made with a view toward maximizing the overall health benefit: to achieve the greatest
