    I agree, it’s amazing how cheap, nutritious, and low calorie eggs are.

    Is he an aficionado of all foods ethnic? If I had a staff, Indian, Thai, Ethiopian, Vietnamese, Chinese, etc. would be 75% of my diet.

    I would definitely patronize a halal market if there were one nearby.

    It's true I like my meat old-style, with fat and flavor intact. Any food stripped of its natural fat is an abomination, IMO.

    Rice, dried beans, and legumes, and oatmeal, especially in bulk. Peanut butter, pastas, and homemade breads.

    (Cool wedding photo, too!)

    Beautiful dress!!! They look so happy!

    I agree about soup being very nutritious and economical. I'll add in sprouts as well. While the initial layout can appear expensive, the actual amount of sprouted greens you get is inexpensive.

    Cabbage - although it is a little higher priced right now than usual here, but it can be used in salads, soups, casseroles, etc. Very versatile and seems to last longer in my fridge than lettuce.

    Everyone has listed my other suggestions.

    I second cabbage, as well as many traditional greens, which I have to remind myself to eat...
    And eggs--so versatile. Liver is the best, but it's not a favorite.

    Well, he's not that adventurous (he doesn't like spicy food), but he is obsessed with Asian street food--he watches videos of it morning, noon, and night. He wanted to buy me a street food tour when I went to Japan, but I never took him up on it.

    From my very limited experience, Japanese is my least favorite of Asian cuisines, due to its dependence on seafood, but I would have been happy to go along with him for ramen, yakisoba, curries, and tempura. I hope he got to go on his own.

    Really?? I LOVE Japanese food.. but I love seafood. I love the simplicity, the presentation...

    We didn't go to Japan together (business travel), so he has yet to explore the street food of Japan or China or anywhere else in Asia, unfortunately.

    Picture of the AIRLINE food (ANA--All Nippon Airlines). It was gorgeous, and tasted gorgeous, too.
