"Two of the most valuable things one can own are his/her vitality and light. Thank you, Afya for being a solider and example for the true wealth of life."

-Erykah Badu (from the back cover)


"As a wellness-pioneer who has ushered a generation of people to take back control of their own health, I recognize The Vegan Soul Food Guide to the Galaxy as an amazing eye-opening, page-turner bound to renew this generation and generations to come."

-Queen Afua, Best Selling Author of Heal Thy Self, City of Wellness (from the foreword)


" This guide has come through me because of my experiences with the medical industry, holistic health counseling, political education, vegetarianism, self-healing and even hip-hop. I have seen how too many people in our communities are living a poor quality of life and dying unnecessarily just because of the foods we eat. No doubt we are oppressed, and that daily reality causes our communities to have a higher incidence of disease. One thing we can do to make real change in our lives is to make wiser food choices. This guide will take the guess work, the myths and the assumptions out of being a vegetarian and show you and your family how to become healthier; with out missing out on the taste that we all love from our Soul food traditions"
