Soul Food Advice Column

The purpose of this column is to help you improve and explore new ideas for your soul food cooking and recipes. Sometimes the column will be longer than other times and it will depend on the subject that I am speaking about. Each column starting today will focus on:

How to Prepare Great Soul Food Meals
Practical Cooking and Baking Tips to save time in the Kitchen
How to Put Together Cost-Effective Menus for Special Events
Proven and Effective Cooking Tips and Techniques
My Personal Experiences Catering and Operating a Restaurant, and much more.

Questions and comments are always welcomed. Thank you.

Soul Food and Diabetes

Planning a family reunion this summer with a buffet meal? If so, select soul-food dishes that are high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and low in fat and calories.

Good selections include collard greens, turnip greens, cabbage, spinach and broccoli, three bean, black bean and black-eyed pea dishes For soul foods high in fiber choose sweet potatoes, wheat bread, and cornbread.
