What Is Healthy Eating Without Cultural Foods?

Healthy eating is sometimes seen as a necessary evil.

On one hand, it’s essential to good health, but on the other, it’s suggestive of restriction and self-denial steeped in Eurocentrism.

Even in the Caribbean, where I’m from, many nutrition programs are modeled on the American food pyramid, which then implies what healthy eating looks like to the local communities.
