I am usually a very healthy eater. Not vegan, but practice eating a plant based diet. For the most part, no meat. Some chicken but my first choice is fish and sea food. For Thanksgiving my dear brother fixed snails for me! I have a weakness for sushi and could probably live on raw tuna for the rest of my days. Very little dairy in my diet, but cheese and yumminess finds a way to my plate now and then. As the saying goes... when in Rome... Well - when I travel, I must try out the local foods!
