This week on Bag Ladiez we have an All Baggage All the Time episode! We talked with the duo behind Woke Foods! Merelis and Ysanet are two Afro-Indigenous Dominican women who believe food is medicine and are on a mission to decolonize diets and put people on to their delicious plant-based Dominican recipes. Woke Foods uses a cooperative business model and taps into the healing traditions of Dominican food to create recipes, host cooking classes, offer meal planning, and cater events. We talk with Ysanet and Merelis about the difference between veganism and a plant based diet, our changing relationships with food over the years, why it’s important to nourish our bodies, the colonization of our diets, and they drop some knowledge about cheese and sugar addictions. We learned a lot from this conversation and hope you all do too! Use #UnpackBG to let us know what you thought about this week’s episode and we’ll see you next week!
