Is it Possible to Eat Healthy in a Food Desert?
In this video, Jenné from Sweet Potato Soul gives her tips and advice on how to eat healthy and even vegan in a food desert. What is a food desert, though? Centers for Disease Control and Prevention describes them perfectly. On their website, they wrote: “Food deserts are areas that lack access to affordable fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat milk, and other foods that make up a full and healthy diet. Many Americans living in rural, minority, or low-income areas are subjected to food deserts and may be unable to access affordable, healthy foods, leaving their diets lacking essential nutrients.”
Even though Jenné doesn’t live in a food desert herself, she is still very educated about the topic. Her advice is unique and helpful to anyone who is struggling with feeding themselves and their family healthy and nutritious food.
