When I was growing up, carrots weren't a topic of eating before leaving the table. Instead, my family shared our love for leafy greens and vegetables, like collard greens, string beans and sweet peas.
When I was in high school, I always looked forward to my fourth block class. My fourth block class consisted of sharpening my culinary arts skills and food nutrition. I enjoyed learning about different food and their health benefits.
When I use to become ill when I was a child, my parents always pumped me with medicines. More importantly, vitamin C.
I was first introduced to mangoes through a former associate and their family. When we lived together, I fell in love with their Caribbean food culture.
When I first heard about pokeweed, it was referred to as "polk salad". My neighbor brought knowledge to me about the leafy green.
When I began drinking vodka, I didn't agree with the taste very well. Perhaps due to my lack of alcohol knowledge at a young age, but the taste was rough and the after taste was awful. I didn't care if you mix it with orange juice, kool-aid, punch, or soda - I was not a fan of vodka!
