My name is Jane Kalu Okereke, I am from Nigeria, and Nigeria is a country endowed with natural food. The challenge we have in eating healthy food in Nigeria is lack of storage facility because most of the vegetables are seasonal.
The food in the picture is one of the food eaten in Nigeria and is called EDIKANG IKONG AND INYAN.
EDIKANG IKONG AND INYAN; this is a traditional Nigerian food originated from the southern part of Nigeria, the soup is made with vegetable pumpkin, waterleaf. Periwinkle shrimps crayfish, onion, palm oil, stock fish, stock cube (Knorr) pepper, meat, dry fish and salt. And the inyan is a staples made from a flavored Nigeria cuisine called yam.
According to Harvard School of Public Health, consuming fresh vegetables such as those found in EDIKANG IKONG, can reduce the rate of stroke, cancer and digestive problem because it contain all the ingredient that the body needs for its wellbeing such as vitamin A, Vitamin C, Omega 3 fatty acid, Carbohydrate, Protein, Fat& Oil, Selenium and minerals.
My approach to healthy eating is eating natural and organic foods that are void of preservatives. If everybody should eat natural and organic food the rate of deadly diseases will reduce and people will live longer.
My vision is having a big farm in the city that produce organic vegetables so that people will eat fresh foods that is void of preservatives in the urban areas.
If the international communities will sponsor this project, it will reduce the deaths that are associated with eating junks.
