I minored in anthropology in college, and food is part of a culture,, so I'm interested in various ethnic foods. I'm on a restricted diet, however, and I'm not a great chef,, so I look for simple dishes without milk products, too much hot spices, grease, and now I've been diagnosed diabetic too! Quite a challenge sometimes to work out a menu for myself, within my budget too! So I've come here to see if I can find, and share, interesting foods and menues. I am more familiar with American cowcountry foods, some Polish foods, Caribbean cuisine. Asian food is low sugar and no dairy, though there are exceptions. I've had the privilege to sample foods from Kenya, Korea, Ethiopia, Soul food. I want to taste the world! My family has had, at one time, enough land to have a large garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, rabbits, and a couple of Bantam chickens. I don't have that at the moment, but I do grow some herbs in pots inside. Fresh herbs are not only tastier but cheaper than dried.
