Healthy Eating Ideas for the New Year

As a 30+ year vegetarian, I am always looking for new ways to satisfy my desire for delicious food that is also healthy and easy to make.  When we first moved to México I kept trying to use my favorite cookbooks, but got frustrated with the difficulty in finding exact ingredients.  Now I use cookbooks mostly for inspiration as I know what I am likely to find locally.

One of the things green tea (and other foods, too) can do is stop angiogenesis, or the development of blood supply for growth...
