A healthy breakfast burrito is a wonderful and easy way for busy diabetics and busy families to obtain the nutrition they need.

Collard Greens with Coconut Milk - Kwanzaa Recipes
Category: Holiday Recipes
Description: Long a staple of soul food, collard greens taste like a cross between cabbage and kale. The addition of coconut milk adds an exotic hint of intrigue to this Southern favourite.
Kwanzaa is a weeklong celebration held in the United States honoring universal African heritage and culture, marked by participants lighting a kinara (candle holder).[1] It is observed from December 26 to January 1 every year.
Kwanzaa consists of seven days of celebration, featuring activities such as candle-lighting and libations, and culminating in a feast and gift giving. It was created by Ron Karenga and was first celebrated from December 26, 1966 to January 1, 1967.
Many Christian African Americans who celebrate Kwanzaa do so in addition to observing Christmas.
