LaTocha Scott is an American R&B singer, songwriter, and actress. She is best known as a member of the Multi-Platinum selling R&B group Xscape, who rose to popularity in the 1990s. LaTocha did an interview with JaGurl TV at the 2019 Black Girls Rock Award showing us that she is a jack of all trades. Not only does she have a beautiful voice, but she can throw down in the kitchen! She is for excited her new vegan cookbook she has coming out.
When asked why she wanted to do a vegan cookbook, she replied “It’s all the good vegan foods. My friends have been coming over and they’re like ‘this can’t be vegan.’ A lot of times they are shunned away when you say it’s vegan food; but it’s really good.” LaTocha explains her inspiration started when she found out her father has diabetes. “I wanted to make sure I started eating healthier, and try to introduce that to our son as well. So yes, it’s definitely important for us to eat healthier as black people.” says LaTocha. She is trying to promote good food, and healthy eating for her community with this new cookbook; and we support the change she is making in the black culture.
