The Best of Healthy Soul Food Recipes was created for soul food fans so they can enjoy tasty foods that can help reduce their risk for stroke and heart disease. The cookbook includes information about stroke risk factors, a personal risk assessment tool and recommendations for stroke prevention.
The cookbook is dedicated to the memory of Yolanda King, who was the first national Ambassador of the American Stroke Association's Power To End Stroke, an aggressive education and awareness program for African Americans. Knowing about stroke is particularly important for African Americans, because they have double the risk of having a first stroke compared to Caucasians.
