    Can the African-American Diet be Made Healthier Without Giving up Culture

    in Pop Culture

    Miller says: If you actually look at rural roots of soul food in the antebellum South, it was a cuisine primarily based on seasonal vegetables, and very little meat was eaten. Meat was typically used to flavor the vegetables, which fits into a culinary framework from West Africa, where dried, salted, or smoked fish was often used to one pot meals. Frying was for special occasions, so their food tended to be baked, boiled, or eaten raw. Think about what nutritionists are telling us to eat: dark leafy greens, sweet potatoes, legumes, and fish. These are building blocks of soul food! In the antebellum South, the enslaved were pretty much fed water, vegetables with little meat; prestige foods were only served during special occasions on weekends, when the work schedule slowed down. Because of the shift in tempo, you could do more elaborate cooking using more prestigious and processed ingredients like butter, refined flour, sugar, and whole milk rather than the whole-wheat flour, molasses, and buttermilk that was more readily available. The diet is closer to what we now call vegan. Soul food’s unhealthy reputation grows when more celebration foods and processed foods enter the diet as people become more prosperous. Quite naturally, if you have more disposable income, you start eating the good stuff more often; thus, celebration food becomes more commonplace. This is further compounded by eating more fast food and industrialized food. To me, that’s a bigger factor of perceived health problems in the African American community, more so than soul food.

    Soul Food – a conversation about soul food and why most dislike food?

    in Pop Culture

    According to some sources, the term may have first been used in 1962 by civil rights activist and poet Amiri Baraka. 1962 was the same year that Sylvia Woods opened her now-famous Harlem restaurant Sylvia’s; today, Sylvia is known by many as “the Queen of Soul Food.” Soul food restaurants and cookbooks continued to be popular through the ’70s.

    The Food

    Soul food is basic, down-home cooking with its roots in the rural South. The principle staples of soul food cooking are beans, greens, cornmeal (used in cornbread, hush puppies, johnnycakes, and as a coating for fried fish), and pork. Pork has an almost limitless number of uses in soul food. Many parts of the pig are used, like pigs’ feet, ham hocks, pig ears, hog jowl, and chitlins. Pork fat is used for frying and as an ingredient in slowly-cooked greens. Sweet, cold drinks are always a favorite.

    “Soul” or “Southern?”

    To a lot of people, all that just sounds like a description of Southern food. The distinctions between soul and Southern are hard to make. In his 1969 Soul Food Cookbook, Bob Jeffries summed it up thusly: “While all soul food is southern food, not all southern food is ‘soul.’ Soul food cooking is an example of how really good southern Negro cooks cooked with what they had available to them.”

    Soul food has its roots in slavery, when African Americans had to make do with whatever food was available to them. For the next hundred years after the abolition of slavery, most African Americans lived in poverty, so recipes continued to make use of cheaper ingredients. Of course, this isn’t entirely a black/white issue.
