The photo was taken at a market in Istanbul. It's an explosion of colors and a promise of interesting flavors. One of these days, I'll pull together the material I collected at the Istanbul spice market and write a blog. It will happen, I promise.
Here is an interesting New Year's resolution for you. I am suggesting this now, because the one you selected on New Year's eve may have worn out by now.
How about this New Year's resolution, I promise it's very gentle:
Eat less processed foods. This one is easy. What ever you are eating now, unless you are already the King or Queen of unprocessed foods, make it less processed. Shoot for no more than 3 ingredients in a store bought product.
Eat fermented food every day. This could be cheese, yogurt, sourkraut, anything fermented, really.
Cook more at home and take more home cooked stuff for lunch to work. Sure, it takes some planning, but it also saves you a huge amount of money.
There you have it! Very simple. You can try that or not. You certainly won't fry in hell for not following this advice, and you don't get any brownie points for following it, but you just may end up a little healthier in 2016. How about that?
