Meat boycott in Sudan!

by

It is funny how things work.

The sharp rise in meat prices (40%) in Sudan is forcing people to make bold decisions such as boycotting lamb, beef and chicken which are prominently featured in the Sudanese diet. Too much in fact. Add to this a 21.1% inflation… So people are upset, thinking that maybe so much meat wasn’t such a good idea in the first place. They are researching things out, the fact that doctors are saying that reducing meat consumption is a good thing and there are many alternatives in terms of protein available in Sudan.

So, looks like a new trend towards a more vegetarian lifestyle is on the rise in Sudan… Thanks to high prices and a new health concerns for its citizens. Let’s hope that it sticks and more nations will follow.

Frankly, with climate change, increased disruptions in rice and grain production, all nations are in line to feel the garanteed price fluctuations of the commodities market. So why not take the lead, make the switch. That’s something that we can do right now.

As a vegan chef, cooking instructor and food consultant, I am blessed to share my passion for international flavors, a compassionate world, optimal health and healing. You can't have one without the others because they are all interconnected. My culinary journey started in the South of France where I was born, then took me through Europe, onto America, then Asia and South America. I grew up eating delicious rich food my grandmother made (think creamy white and wine sauces) and fresh Mediterranean dishes my mother prepared. My family was by no mean vegetarian or vegan but we weren’t big meat eaters either. This being said, I must confess that I have had my fair share of strange things being served as food as I grew up! But I soon came to realize that it was the sauces, the marinade that tasted so good and that they could have just as well been poured over bread or tofu and it would have been just as good. You know how certain songs bring back a memory of where you were and who you were with when you heard them? Well, I seem to have a memory of food attached to pretty much every place and profound moment I have experienced in my life. It was the way love was shared and cherished all through my life so I am continuing the tradition! But the love is even more healing when there is no pain and sufferings attached to it. Be vegan, it is good for your health and the only sustainable diet for the planet.
