Eating two hundred different foods challenge

Current grand total: 219

This is certainly going to be a challenge but I’m going to see if, like the ancient hunter-gatherer cavemen types, I can eat 200 different types of food in the next six months of very healthful dieting. That’s really a lot of variety inside a limited paleo spectrum.

I’ll add to this as I eat (and remember things I ate). I’ve already tried a few new things like pot roast (yes different aspects of the same animal are going to count!), aronia berries, and rutabaga.
