Can you believe the week is coming to a close!! HURRAY for the weekend!! Although I don't have a job, I always look forward to the weekends because I get to spend a bit more time with those who do have to work *cough Rusty cough*
Today Rusty forwarded me this article, "First Camera, Then Food". I haven't been able to figure out whether he forwarded me the article to hint that taking pictures of food is a bit obsessive, or he just knew this article would interest me. Guess I'll never know, haha!
Hear are some excerpts from the article:
- In 1825, the French philosopher and gourmand Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin wrote, “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.” Today, people are showing the world what they eat by photographing every meal, revealing themselves perhaps more vividly than they might by merely reciting the names of appetizers and entrees.
- But she has noticed lately that it’s becoming harder to suppress the urge to shoot. “I get this ‘must take picture’ feeling before I eat, and what’s worse is that I hate bad pictures so I have to capture it in just the right light and at just the right angle,” Ms. Sherman said.
- Photos are also a means of self-motivation for Mr. Garcia, who began photographing his food after he lost 80 pounds. “It’s definitely part of my neuroticism about trying to keep thin,” he said. “It keeps you accountable because you don’t want to have to see that you ate an entire jar of peanut butter.”
Can you relate to the article in some way?
- The pictures, I realize now, are incredibly personal, and by looking at them you can probably deduce the type of person I am.” Moreover, the pictures set off memories and emotions in a way a written journal could not. “I remember every single day, who I was with, what I was feeling,” he said.
Do you think one can tell who a person is from what they eat?
I guess now I will tell you who I am!
1 cup of Kashi GoLean, 1/2 cup of A.M., Strawberries, Cheese-Stick
I guess you can say I am in a cereal kick! Since the days here in Flo- Ridah have been getting warmer all I crave in the morning is some crunchy cereal with some chilled Almond Milk. The Kashi cereal really keeps to its word, it always keeps me full and satisfied til' lunch time comes around.
Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Apples & Strawberries
I love sprouted grain bread! It is sooo good when it is all warm and toasty :)
Many of you bloggies prefer plain greek yogurt and adding the fruits yourself, I am sure it is healthier but I am just such a sucker flavored greek yogurt! Tomorrow I will finally try Chobani's Pineapple flavor, can't wait!!!
Later in the afternoon I sipped on some rockin' tea! Check out the awesome tea Rusty brought back from China!!
The flower is a small ball in the beginning and once it is in the hot water it slowly blooms! Really soothing tea, thanks Rusty!
Dinner tonight was Jill Michael's inspired, Curried Swordfish with Eggplant.
Swordfish, Eggplant, Cherry Tomatoes, Curry
This dish rocked, the combination of all these ingredients really blended amazing!! Can you believe it was my first time trying swordfish! Every time I eat seafood it is mainly Mahi-Mahi, Salmon, Scallops, or Shrimps, boy have I been missing out!
