We apologize for the recent disruption of service, and are pleased to report that the power has been restored to the Main Library. We have returned to our normal Monday schedule: the Main Library and Brookfield and Eastmont Branches are now open. All other locations will resume normal operations on Tuesday, January 23. We appreciate the community's support and patience over the past few days.
Decolonize Your Diet
Decolonize Your Diet: Mexican-American Plant-Based Recipes for Health and Healing is more than just a cookbook. It redefines what is meant by "traditional" Mexican food by reaching back through hundreds of years of history to reclaim heritage crops as a source of protection from modern diseases.
Decolonize Your Diet promotes a diet rich in plants indigenous to the Americas (corn, beans, squash, greens, herbs, and seeds). This vegetarian cookbook features 109 delicious recipes inspired by indigenous ingredients and knowledge. Learn more about the research and philosophy behind the book with authors and Professors Luz Calvo (CSU East Bay) and Catriona Rueda Esquibel (SFSU).
If you're interested in the history of indigenous foods of the Americas, and how they can aid in your health, do not miss this event!
