Eating healthier in Austin

As an African American, seeing a large disproportionate number of us in the hospital and clinic waiting rooms has compelled me to seek out healthier food alternatives [Food for the body and soul, Aug. 14].

Quench was highly recommended by friends. What a breath of healthy fresh air for our community-not just another fast food joint.

Hopefully, our community will catch on to the fact that we are killing ourselves by not making healthy food choices for us or our children.

Out with the fried; in with the fresh.
