Fruit with Greek yogurt, the simplest dessert ever (my photo)
I wanted to start off 2013 with some photos of Greek food because to me, it captures the essence of my country. I belong to the rare species of the Greek Vegetarian but I find it easy to eat in restaurants no matter what you may have heard. It’s the abundance of vegetables and fruit that makes it so.
As far as food is concerned, my wish for the New Year is that all people in my country and all all over the world, have enough nutritious, comforting food. Happy New Year!
