We’ve seen Lalia’s appearance on various cooking show. Now she is highlighting her culinary skills in a new cook book geared to help African American’s eat healthier launching in January.
In Food For Life: Delicious & Healthy Comfort Food From My Table To Yours,” Lalia shares her favorite recipes inspired with wellness and fitness experts to assist in eating clean and living your best life.
Lalia honors her father the late boxing champion Muhammad Ali in the cookbook:
“My father and I both have always had a love affair with tasty homemade meals and comfort foods. Another thing my father loved was a great burger at some of the local burger joints he encountered during his worldwide travels. So when my dad was still alive and well, to surprise him during one of my trips to visit him in Arizona, I shared with him that I named one of his favorite burgers after him. It’s called ‘The Ali Burger.'”
Lalia expresses why eating health is important to her:
“The epidemic we face in our country with people suffering from diabetes, heart disease, obesity and other illnesses is largely connected to our lifestyle choices, and unfortunately the African American community is disproportionately affected. I am passionate about encouraging others and providing all people with tools to improve their health and overall quality of life!”
