Eating nutritious and healthy meals can be affordable, and a new cookbook from the Tulane Prevention Research Center (PRC) gives residents in New Orleans a guide.
With 80 pages of recipes and healthy eating tips, the Eat Dat! cookbook breaks down the costs and nutritional content of delicious and often quick meals.
Partners across New Orleans, including the Lower 9th Ward Center for Sustainable Engagement & Development and the Xavier University Health & Wellness Center, have assisted in distributing the cookbook.
The recipes were created and priced mostly by Tulane Dietetic Interns, post-bachelor degree students who are studying to become registered dietitians. The interns, who each spent one week working at the Tulane PRC, also wrote several pages of tips at the end of the book. Tulane PRC staff and graduate students at the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine also helped with pricing and nutritional facts labels, as well as editing and compiling the recipes into the final product.
