Soul food is going through a paradigm shift now. With so many people concerned about health, nutrition and their diets, soul food is getting lighter and somewhat healthier than in the past. So now some of the more popular dishes are Stir fried collard greens, Stir Fried Cabbage and Lemon Herb Chicken.

2. Tips For Cooking Healthy?

The best way start is to avoid pork products and deep fat frying. Try to lean more toward baking, roasting and sautéing or stir frying lean cuts of meats. Try to use more fresh herbs and spices in your dishes and avoid salt. If you have to use salt use Kosher salt. Why? Because it contains less harmful sodium. And lastly try to include more fresh vegetables in your diet. Try to eat a vegetarian meal at least once a week. You can find many excellent vegetarian soul food recipe books at your local library or bookstore.

3. How Can I get My Family to Eat More Healthily Soul Food?

The best way is to start slow. Introduce one healthy dish at a time. Perhaps start with a chicken dish, instead of deep fat frying it, try marinating it first, then oven baking and coating it with corneal, this will give it a tasty and crunchy texture without the fat. The key to introducing healthier soul food recipes to your family is proper seasoning techniques.
