Olympic Omnivores

The lovely red and white, mapleleaf design of Canada's flag was EVERYWHERE---including the pastries!

Beautiful displays of fresh fruit caught my eye in every food market I visited.

These photos show some of the fresh produce for sale at the Granville Island Market. Note how the lettuce only has a rubber band around it, vs. a plastic bag like what is used in the USA.

Even Vancouver "street food" is special! The top photo shows local fishermen/chefs offering smoked salmon (NOT farm-raised!) on a stick, on the street beside the waterfront. The bottom photos show the healthy food choices available at the concession stand at the curing match. It included sushi, fresh fruit, yogurt, whole wheat sandwiches, and banana-nut bread. It was often time to bow my head and say "God is great. God is good. Let us thank Him for our food!" Amen!
