The most life-changing advice I ever received was to make every meal half fruits and vegetables--mostly vegetables, the more colors the better, and potatoes don't count (they go in the other half of the meal). That said, this is a blog about all foods and how they affect mind, body, microbes, and the planet.
I wanted to paint a turkey for Thanksgiving and googled some images on-line. Now I'm a total heritage turkey devotee and next time I'm going to paint a life-sized bird. There are some really interesting varieties! And people love their birds! There are also a remarkable number of sweet potato varieties. I think people get less emotionally attached to those although Mark Bittman seems pretty impressed by them in his Thanksgiving NYT's article.
