Karrie Marchbanks learned early in life that success, in any area of life, is determined by the choices we make every day. As a single mother, then living in Pueblo, Colorado, Karrie learned from personal experience that when our bodies are overweight and undernourished, they don’t hesitate to cry out to us in the form of chronic illness. As a result, Karrie learned the keys to a healthier lifestyle, applied it to her life and felt compelled to share her knowledge with other women along the way. She was later led to write Sweet Tea and Cornbread with hopes of inspiring, motivating and empowering African American women who want to take back their bodies and live a healthier lifestyle. Karrie currently lives in North Carolina
“Sweet Tea and Cornbread: Inspiring, Motivating and Empowering Black Women to Take Back Their Bodies and Live a Healthier Lifestyle” connects the dots between the staggering effects of chronic disease in the African American community and the African American culture itself. Written by Karrie Marchbanks, this book dispels the myths, challenges the stereotypes and targets the reasons why black women lead the nation when it comes to chronic disease. “The main goal of this book is to empower black women with the information they need to live a life of health — beyond pills and dieting. The way we view food, what we eat and the way we eat it goes back to slavery times, and until we modernize our thinking and understand the health risks we face because of it, black women will continue suffer disproportionately from chronic disease.”
With humorous, relatable stories, a wealth of practical health information and Christian affirmations this book takes you on a trip back in time to help you discover the roots of why as African American women we are at such high risk. Sweet Tea and Cornbread will transform your mind, body and spirit and lead you on a journey to a healthier lifestyle!
