Nigerian Food Culture - An Introduction

Nigerian Food Culture - An Introduction

Nigerian food can be delicious and healthy. Surprisingly, an average Nigerian in the village looks relatively slimmer than those who live in the cities and eat the best food money can buy. I have currently noticed that most of the Nollywood actors and actresses are now growing fat in geometrical progressions!

Somebody has to point this situation out before obesity the scourge of the western world grips them.

This is not only a food for thought but a situation that has to be mentioned before this dangerous stage is reached.

My guess for this unfortunate incident is that many of these actors and actresses seem to be nonchalant about what they eat, don’t eat fruits and vegetables and worse still, do not have time for regular exercises.

It is true that they eat the best food money can buy but sometimes, some of those foods can be harmful especially when body weight are not regularly checked.

Once again, I have to point out that we are what we eat! What we eat can equally influence our life’s styles and patterns! I have already recommended some diets for healthy eating for the Nollywood stars in this my website. I pray that they should follow my recommendations with all amount of seriousness!

Fast food industries and restaurants are now springing up fast in Nigeria.

The arrival of Fast food restaurants in Nigeria look gorgeous and easy for those who are too lazy to cook. I warn an average Nigerians and the Nollywood stars that most of these foods the various establishments serve are what we classify as ‘JUNK FOODS!’ No one can achieve healthy eating from such foods. They can be dangerous to the body and need warning certificates given to the regular eaters!
