The typical American diet is heavy in added sugars, salts, and synthetic fats, but one-size-fits-all nutrition plans often leave many of us wanting more. There's a more delicious way to eat sustainably and healthfully, by getting back to flavorful traditional cooking methods from cultures around the world including the Caribbean, South America, Africa, the Mediterranean, Asia, and more.


In Eating from Our Roots, Maya Feller, a registered dietitian and nutritionist known for her approachable, real-food-based solutions, highlights nourishing dishes from around the world with a focus on whole and minimally processed ingredients prepared with spices and flavor-enhancing techniques at home. She shares thoughtful and realistic ways to think about how we relate to food, along with nutrition highlights and tips throughout. Maya makes it easy to enjoy the vibrant flavors of your favorite cuisine, whether that's the foods you grew up eating in the family kitchen or new recipes you're discovering for the first time.

Sweet Potato and Leek Soup with Crispy Potato Skins from West Africa

Salted Cod from Trinidad & Tobago
