Episode #33: Racism, Cultural Foods & Diet Culture with Dr. Kera Nyemb-Diop (@black.nutritionist)
We have a special guest on this episode! Dr. Kera Nyemb-Diop joins us to talk about the way diet culture influences cultural food choices and how she approaches this with her work in nutrition. We also discuss the racist origins of diet and wellness culture, common myths she hears about the “health” of certain foods in the black community, and how we can all decolonize our plates. This is an awesome episode, and not one to be missed!
Follow along with Kera and learn more about her work:
