I survived a 30-day food photography course. Ok, technically I survived 21 days. Due to work deadlines, I was unable to finish the last week.
I am SO proud of myself. No, these photos are not perfect. And yes, I have a lot more to learn. But I was as dedicated as I could be,I made myself vulnerable by willfully sharing my art with people who critiqued it, andI let myself be new at something.
I’m convinced smoothies are the most deceptive health food.
Throw a bunch of healthy ingredients into the blender, and before you know it, you’ve ended up creating a several-hundred calorie meal when you intended to make a small snack.
Small rant: I seriously think this is why people who go Paleo get frustrated when they don’t lose weight–they compensate grain depletion with nuts and fruit in overwhelming amounts. Well, sure, you’ve chosen a healthy option, but your body always stores excess energy, even if consumed through healthful foods.
Baloo and I tried that last year for a couple of weeks. There’s no way I’d make it as a Paleo lifer. Too limited. But short-term, it’s super helpful to understand the foods you’re addicted to, like sugar.
