Benefits of an African Diet
You may be asking yourself what are the benefits of an African diet. What makes it so different and so special?
High in Fiber
A traditional African diet is very high in fiber which helps with weight control as well as improving your cholesterol. Studies have proven that a diet high in fiber can also help reduce the risk of some types of colon cancer and Type 2 diabetes. Some foods high in fiber are cassava, millet, and sorghum.
Low in Sodium
Traditional African cooking is minimally processed and contains very low amounts of sodium. We rely on the natural flavours of the food. And with the beautiful and magical combination of spices who needs salt?
Low in Fat
It’s low in fat because the African way of eating is based on starches, fruits, and vegetables. When meat is consumed, which is typically on special occasions, it is minimal and it is organic.
Keeping the natural flavours of the food is absolutely essential when it comes to African cuisine. Steaming food wrapped in leaves, grilling, boiling, or roasting are the methods used when cooking.
