I go shopping for food once every two weeks. I have a shopping list of 15 items, of which 10 are there every time… not changing.
My eating style is to eat by appetite, one food per meal. And boring… little or no variety. I do well with that. Variety: my gut cannot keep up with that.
But every time I shop I sneak in something different, eat it and get sick for a day or two or three. That is my indulgence for that two week period.
It makes me feel free.
I am from Hungary. I like spicy sausage. There is a famous sausage in Hungary, Gyulai kolbász. Chorizo is similar, but not the same. So I have been buying Andouille sausage made by Dartagnan.
Obviously the sausage is made of pork meat and pork fat.
I am Jewish.
So today I asked the question:
why am I allowed to eat pork? Isn’t the Bible an accurate prescription for health?
I know, I know… but this question opened a veritable can of worms.
