The Rastafarian Movement Provides More Than Weight Loss
The Rastafarian, or Rastafari, movement is a religious movement that began in Jamaica and now has members throughout the world. The movement encouraged Jamaicans and people of African descent to redeem Africa as their homeland and cast off feelings of inferiority. While people often stereotype followers as people with dreadlocks who smoke ganja, or marijuana, true followers have many looks and strive to live peaceful lives.
A LOOK AT CALLALOO
Callaloo isn't often served in the United States, but it's a staple in the Caribbean, as its primary ingredient is taro, a large-leafed vegetable. Callaloo is a stew that typically contains crab, chili peppers, coconut milk and okra. As with other types of stew, callaloo is calorie-dense and rich in carbohydrates and fat. Callaloo's nutritional profile makes it less than ideal for dieting, but it can be enjoyed in moderation on most diet plans as part of a vegetarian diet.
