I've cooked and that's not helping. Had chocolate, and even that didn't help (much)! So, I thought I'd blog, maybe some photos of vegan food will brighten my crooked soul! Plus, I haven't posted any of my food pics for a while, so now's a good time. I realized yesterday that I haven't even taken many photos of my food lately. I really need a new camera. A good one. I have one of these little Canon powershot cameras that is good enough for most photos, but it's really challenging to take good food photos unless I have some natural light to work with. Given the pissing-down rain we've had in recent weeks, there's not much opportunity to shoot photos outside. Also, I've been more focused on finishing edits with my recipes and book that I haven't been snap-happy. I've rambled. That happens when I'm cranky. Well, it happens all the time actually. Anyhow, shall we get on to some photos? Here's some stuff that will be in the next cookbook:
|Almond Roasted Cauliflower|
|Creamy Grilled Eggplant Dip|
|Caramelized Onion and Hemp Hummus|
|Caribbean Fusion Stew|
Next bunch of food porn I'll squeeze in the sweet treats. They'll be in order for me today anyhow! Alright, I'll try to shape up my mood now. But, if I happen to cross paths with any of you today, you've got my apology now - in advance!
Food-unrelated (but topical) question: When you're feeling cranky, do you throw on something colorful to feel better, or stick to the black/brown/gray stuff in your closet?
The effects of diet do not start at puberty. Food choices exert noticeable effects much earlier, even in the toddler years. [Vegetarian children] grow up more gradually, reach puberty later, are much less likely to die of heart disease or cancer in mid-life, and overall live years longer than people raised on typical Western diets.
