I came across Vegan Soul Kitchen by Bryant Terry and realized it hit a nerve. You mean, I could eat vegan and not give up tastes that I was so used to eating? I felt hungry when I read about the Black Eyed Peas Fritters and the Open Faced BBQ Temph Sandwich.
Then, I did some research of possible other individuals who knew how to season their vegan food well and not make it taste "healthy".
I came across another book, By Any Greens Necessary: A Revolutionary Guide for Black Woman Who Want to Eat Great, Get Healthy, Lose Weight, and Look Phat by Tracy Lynne McQuirter and quietly added it on my need to read list.
