Many of us complain about the lack of quality programming for geared toward Black people on TV. If it isn’t a reality show, it doesn’t seem like it gets much play these days. To fill the void, several young, Black folks have been turning to the web to get their fix of good shows that showcase people who look like them.
A few months ago I introduced you to “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl,” a hilarious web series about a young, Black woman dealing with life’s most awkward moments. And after reading, we all agreed Issa Rae—the show’s creator—was spot on.
This time around, I’d like to introduce you to “Food Heaven Made Easy,” a monthly cooking and nutrition show created by two beautiful, brown skin women, Wendy Lopez and Jessica Jones. The ladies, who are both Nutritionists, aim to improve the diet and health of underserved communities. Although Lopez and Jones are based out of NYC and their show will air on Brooklyn Community Access Television, “Food Heaven Made Easy” will also be available on the web.
The first episode, “$10 Meal Time,” shows viewers how to shop for and prepare a low-cost, nutritious, and tasty meal, something I’m sure we all could use pointers on. Check it out.
As someone who is trying to do a little more cooking at home, I know I’ll be tuning in. How about you?
