1000 Foods list

Here is an alphabetical  compilation of all the foods we have eaten over this year in 2017.   Some foods listed are the standard foods that most of us eat, others we have intentionally added to our diet for the sake of variety and diversity. Many of these foods link to recipes and articles that give a greater background on the food’s culture, its health benefits, flavor, and other useful information. We plan to update the list frequently to keep it current. If we have inadvertently listed a variety as a separate species, we apologize. Please let us know in the comment section so we can fix our mistake.
