sisterwoman vegan aims to encourage healing using plant based dishes inspired by the Black diaspora and our stories. i want to provide a space to empower us to think more critically about the food that we eat and repair our relationships with food that patriarchy, capitalism and white supremacy have disrupted.
sisterwoman vegan has a holistic approach to food and wellness. a holistic approach considers a persons physical, mental and emotional health as well as the social structures and circumstances creating their environment.
n.b. these are things i have learnt on my personal journey to self love, healing and wellness. it works for me. it may not work for you. take what does, leave what doesn't, just try your best, love and trust yourself and stay informed.
WELLNESS IS A MARATHON, NOT A SPRINT. I'M STILL LEARNING, SAME AS YOU.
safiya robinson, founder
i'm a self-taught vegan chef of british, jamaican and african american descent, on a mission to bring new flavours to the vegan movement and show people just how delicious, simple and creative a plant based diet and lifestyle can be!
i adopt an intersectional approach to veganism and my recipes are inspired by west indian and african american flavours. i want to make holistic health and wellness more accessible for the Black community.
i hope i can make this knowledge accessible to you all.
LOVE, PLANTAIN AND SOLIDARITY.
food shouldn’t be a bad boyfriend, dragging you down or holding you to ransom. it should nourish your body as much as it fuels your mind; it should pump life through your veins; it should waltz in sync with your mood and your appetite, sometimes blissful, often mundane, always a part of you.
