Healthy Soul Food???? Yes, it exists!!

Luckily for us women that sometimes crave a good soul food meal, there are healthy ways to prepare these items so that you do not sacrifice all those days in the gym.

Not necessarily a restaurant, but Vita Mondie-Sapp in Anacostia, DC does catering and offers classes. Here's a Washington Post article about her, which includes some of her recipes with healthy spins on soul food.

Hey There,

I love your blog. Patti Labelle's Light Cusine is a great low-fat cook book that has all types of recipes for soul food.

Take care
