Tendai Tandi is new to food systems work. Tendai from Cardiff believes that she has managed to reverse type 2 diabetes naturally using plants as her medicine and believes that increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables is beneficial for people’s health as well as the prevention of lifestyle related diseases like diabetes. She thinks that it’s vitally important for communities to have access to fruits and vegetables, and that they’re taught how to cook with them and store them in order to reduce waste and look after the environment.
Tendai says that it’s really important to have a diverse group of people as Veg Advocates and as a member of the Black African community in Cardiff, says that she’ll be able to reach the BME community. Tendai wants to see people eating more vegetables and fruits for both their health and their wellness.
