Over the past two years I have been researching and learning about the traditional uses and health benefits of coconut which is a traditional food of Esmeraldas, a province of Ecuador. In Esmeraldas, coconut has been a staple for people of African descent for centuries. However coconut has now become inaccessible to people there due to high prices and outdated medical advice which demonizes saturated fat.
I will be sharing the link to the indiegogo campaign site soon. Meanwhile, you can help build momentum by reading and sharing an article I wrote about coconut gentrification in Esmeraldas, sharing and watching a video of my talk at the Ancestral Health Symposium in Berkeley, and liking my project facebook page Comidas que curan.
Do you love coconut? Share now and help support this project!
Meanwhile, lets coconut groove with Arturo Sandoval. Happy Monday!
