|Reviewers Comments: ||Soulful Recipes is a cookbook filled with recipes with an African American flair, including traditional Southern foods, West African dishes, and traditional herbs and spices. Nutrition education spotlights are included, with information about important nutrients (calcium), physical activity (dancing), family mealtime traditions, and specific foods: black-eyed peas, greens, sweet potatoes and fresh, frozen and canned vegetables.
In addition to recipes, the cookbook includes a visual explanation of portion sizes, a chart explaining recommended cups of fruits and vegetables, a measurement conversion chart, a guide to storing fruits and vegetables, and an explanation of herbs and spices.
The printed book is spiral bound at the top and includes a folded cardboard in the back, which allows it to stand on its own.
