Green Soul Rising

A Plant-Based Journey to Holistic Enlightenment

An exploration of the vegan diet with a focus on African diaspora communities. 
Green Soul Rising encourages readers to transition into a plant-based, animal-free diet. In her quest to uncover a higher sense of spirituality and being, Nathalie Etienne challenges the Black community's relation to food, culture, and belief. Drawing on her Haitian background and experiences, she shares her personal odyssey away from animal products, processed foods, and unhealthy cooking habits, working to dispel the notion that soul food and traditional African diaspora foods are not conducive to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Etienne questions whether culture can perpetuate detrimental habits and considers how we can balance health with tradition. With a personable and non-judgmental approach, Green Soul Rising offers guidance, cultural perspective, and encouragement for those seeking to improve their eating habits.
