Introduction

Sojourn to Healthy Eating: Tasty Alkaline & Vegetarian Recipes takes her cue from a few pages of recipes stapled together in the office of nutritionist and herbal medicine specialist Dr. Sebi in 2007.  Here’s a brief account of what happened back then and why you’re reading this cookbook today.  It’s an excerpt from the book Sojourn to Honduras Sojourn to Healing: Why An Herbalist’s View Matters More Today Than Ever Before (page 29).

 

 “I’m reminded of a Saturday afternoon I stopped by Dr. Sebi’s office in Los Angeles after that first trip to Usha Village.  His staff had compiled a cookbook with vegetarian recipes, a cookbook chock full of meals they’d been working on for some time but sat unpublished.  They gave me a copy and from that I printed more and dropped them off at his office, considering it the best I could do at that moment to help others eat proper foods.  Clients flowed in and out of the office buying Dr. Sebi’s herbal products and the Saturday afternoon meal of the day, vegetarian lasagna, a succulent dish made so by Dr. Sebi’s daughter Xave.  A slender African American woman who appeared to be in her mid-40s waited with her four-year-old daughter to buy the lunch and an herbal shake.  When she heard me talk to the staff about the cookbook, she gave a frantic search deep down in her shoulder bag for a piece of paper to write down some of the recipes.  When I noticed the paper she pulled out looked like a bill of some sort, folded and too small for the simplest recipe, I knew the cookbook and a story about an herbalist from Honduras were long overdue.  I gave the lady my draft copy of the cookbook.”
