Decolonize your Diet Book Plática w/ Authors

When: Fri., June 23, 7-9 p.m.

More than just a cookbook, Decolonize Your Diet redefines what is meant by “traditional” Mexican food by going back into history to reclaim ancestral foods as a source of protection from modern diseases of development. Authors Luz Calvo and Catriona Rueda Esquibel are life partners; when Luz was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, they both radically changed their diets and began seeking out recipes featuring healthy, vegetarian Mexican foods. They promote a diet that is rich in plants indigenous to the Americas (corn, beans, squash, greens, herbs, and seeds).
