A Zambian diet and mounds of mangoes | Peace Corps Passport


As part of a personal challenge I took it upon myself to go on a strictly village diet for the month of November. I decided that I would only eat foods found in the local community – meaning no pricey cookies and treats that the local shops sometimes carry. The diet also excluded food bought in one of the provincial capital’s markets and, certainly, any food — mainly candy — that had been sent to me from friends and family in the U.S. I’d spend the month eating as they do and longingly staring at the popcorn on my counter every single night.
