Could our eating habits be catalyzing the famine crisis and issues with hunger we face in Kenya?

I am yet to know who told Kenyans that maize flour,milk and bread are the only foods that we can eat.Is it our colonial history or businesses that have socialized us that way?considering the political class own companies like brookside so they will always get tax relief when things go wrong such as now,we are always told that ugali makes you strong yet Ugali does not make you strong but it has a lot of calories so you gain weight,I have had many foreigners pointing out about our habits that Kenyans love drinking too much tea,and a Spaniard saying that in their country they give milk to sick people and they prefer coffee with water or creamer and that Ugali does not have any special taste yet Kenyans are obssesed with it,corn meal-ugali and collared greens-sukuma wiki are not a staple in an American’s table,Nigerians have a very wide staple diet-Egusi,fufu,groundnuts,cassava,jollof-rice/pilau,crayfish etc,these guys rarely starve,why is it that in Kenya when there is no maize things go sour ,i also noticed something strange, most countries that have corn meal as a staple food face starvation issues,malawi,kenya,s.sudan etc,why dont we encourage pumpkins,cassava,wheat,rice,arrow roots etc,?or what reason does the country bave thay it faces hunger issues day in day out?

Leo supa mimi na kiherehere yangu nimeokota unga ya chapo badala ya ya Ugali nikishangaa niaje bei imepungua. Kufika counter ndio nagundua makosa

hata samaki, never looked at that…

ungekanda unga ya chapati utengeneze chapo nyingi ndio breakfast na supper ziwe sorted out kama hakuna ugali,mimi since ni bachelor imebidi nianze kulearn kupika chakula za country zingine, huku Kenya tumezoeshwa unga ya ugali,maziwa na mkate hadi zikiisha population nusu ya kenya inaeza angamia, ukipata transfer halafu ukienda siku moja base kama Walmart usirarukiwe

Sina pan. Najua kuzipika lakini hiyo time ni mob sana, ugali huiva in 5 mins na rice in ten… Chapo kukanda pekee ni miaka

Good thinking

BTW hiyo inaweza kuwa reason,kupika Ugali,Chai sukuma wiki inachukuwa time short, lakini hata wanawake wetu wa Kenya ni wavivu,hata kama food ya Nigeria si poa vile, hawa wamama wanapika na wana bidii,ebu angalia ingredients za Egusi au Ogbono soup, kukanda na kugrind vitu nyingi, mimi naona nikitafuta muitaliano au mexican akuwe bibi,kila siku pasta, pizza,Tacos na Burritos

Tafuta dem mjaka ama wa coast.
Mimi kwa keja niko na sufuria mbili tu na pan ya mayai

BTW,unasema ukweli,Hata wajaka na wacoast ni wapishi kurukia,kina Akinyi etc wacha tuangalie hizo sides

hehehehe almost happened to me jana.

at OP, the way Kenyans think is just terrible. But the thing is, we have known this from kitambo sana.
remember when FinyaCoochiePanty was ranting about population, well well well…

we can’t think beyond the ordinary and the plain.

True, i been wondering the same thing Ugali save for manual laborers those with physically demanding jobs is not a necessity for most of us.
Sugar pia sio lazima save for Kids, an adult who must have sugar in his tea is a moron!

niliitisha italic Machakos Jana wakajifanya hawajaskia

A few years ago when most of you were still in lower primary one Njeru Ndwiga caused quite an uproar after he advised Kenyans to stop being over reliant on maize and diversify and start eating other things like rats, insects and snakes.
There was no social media back then but the outrage was palpable.
