Reposted from Meet Desiree, the founder of and Prado's newest merchant partner!

Dear Mama LA is a plant-based Mexican food pop-up that focuses on providing healthier meal options to food deserts throughout Los Angeles and beyond. The inspiration behind each dish is her grandmother and her struggle migrating from Guadalajara to Tijuana and then finally arriving in Boyle Heights. As a q***r WOC, Desiree strives to share their stories through each dish, taking the traditional flavors of Mexico and incorporating the culture of Boyle Heights to create exciting new takes on your favorite Mexican food.

To order ahead for her upcoming pop-up at LA Chingona, click on her linktree link in Dear Mama's and you'll find her new menu at the top of the list. Use zip code 90201.

This s**t is bananas!B-A-N-A-A-S )
Drop ❤ if you want more posts like this ⠀
.⁠⠀⠀
This title probably sums up how I’ve been feeling lately. But I did want to interrupt your feed to talk all things Bananas.⁠⠀⠀
.⁠⠀⠀
Bananas are a nutritious fruit that can be eaten in so many different ways. While most people eat bananas when they’re ripe (yellow), you can also safely eat them in their other stages. Green and brown bananas still provide a lot of the good nutrients that are in ripe bananas like potassium, magnesium, vitamin C and vitamin B6. ⁠⠀⠀
.⁠⠀⠀
Green bananas - contain mostly starch and tend to be more bitter in taste and firm in texture than yellow bananas. Green bananas also contain lots of fiber, prebiotics, pectin, and resistant starches which have been linked to health benefits like helping to keep your gut bacteria healthy. Because they have the most fiber, these bananas are slightly more filling than a yellow or brown banana. ⁠⠀⠀
.⁠⠀⠀
Yellow bananas - are a great source of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other nutrients. They have lost a little bit of resistant starch since being unripe, and therefore they taste sweeter than green bananas. Bananas in this stage are quickly digested and leave you feeling full for longer. ⁠⠀⠀
.⁠⠀⠀
Brown bananas - contain the most antioxidants out of all the stages and the least amount of resistant starches, meaning that they’re very sweet. This flavor makes them great for baking! In this stage the banana has lost the most micronutrients, but it is still a healthy choice. ⁠⠀⠀
.⁠⠀⠀
Pro tip: If you want to ripen a banana faster you can place it in a brown paper bag, and if you want to slow down the process put it in the fridge. 😁⁠⠀⠀

Purple carrots: You may have seen these at your local fruit and vegie market and thought they looked a little strange. As it happens these were normal up until the 17th century, so they’re actually more normal than their orange counterparts! Very high in anti-inflammatory properties, support a healthy weight, and excellent sources of fibre and Vitamin A.

Purple cabbage: A striking flavour both raw and cooked, boosts the immune system, is rich in fibre and Vitamin K (important for healthy bones). It also contains probiotics.
Purple potatoes: Apart from having a mesmerising textured purple colour, they help lower blood pressure, keep blood circulation healthy and can be used as a natural alternative to artificial dye.

Eggplant: Rich source of Vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin B6, magnesium, potassium and too many more. is often touted as one of the world’s healthiest foods, a pitch made stronger with the presence of . Just make sure you don’t throw out the skin – it’s the most nutritious part.

: All deep red, blue or purple fruits are high in all the good stuff above so you really can’t go wrong. Add some juicy blueberries, strawberries and raspberries to your fruit salads or snack options, try plums for added digestive health and acai berries to slow down the ageing process.

Here’s what antioxidants like anthocyanin can do:

Reduce the risk of high blood pressure and low HDL cholesterol (the good kind), Help to prevent obesity and diabetes

Lower the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, neurological diseases and cognitive declines

Reduce inflammation and therefore chronic disease

Assist in preventing urinary tract infections, fight ulcers, reduce liver damage and prevent other diseases contracted from cell damage.

Recent studies show the impact field trips have on high school students, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity and family income. Our opportunity-obsessed YE educators from Northwest High School in Wichita, Kansas (Wichita Public Schools), and Strive High School in Los Angeles, California (Strive), took their class on a leave-to-learn excursion in their community that ended in a transformational experience for students.
