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.
