El Placer de la Rica Recipe Book, Healthy Food from Manabí

After facilitating workshops on nutrition and responsible consumption in five communities in northern  Manabí, the FUEGOS team  shared concepts on how to balance nutrients in the use of locally-produced food. Each participating community member brought food from their gardens and farms. FUEGOS supplemented these  with protein-rich foods and the result was the preparation of delicious, sustainable and healthy dishes. Recipes were modified with  the language used by the communities, and included the names of the co-creators together with photos of Manabi food. The cookbook provides  nutritional advice and explanations about the value of traditional Manabi cooking techniques and  is available in digital form; in addition, there are 2,000 printed copies that are being used in training sessions in the province.
