Food in the round; and what the Internet is for

I loved this week's creative challenges at Hot by BlogHer. I chose to do the diet challenge:

For this challenge, choose one day this week and photograph every bite you eat, then blog those photos. (Before you eat it, of course.) You'll not only be hyperaware of food choices due to the accountability of blogging it, but you may be surprised when you see your entire day of food in front of you.

1 Nonfat chai latte; 2 apple slices left from kid's breakfast; 3 oatmeal with blueberries, almonds, and a splash of chai concentrate; 4 stir fry with brown rice, tofu, broccoli, carrots, shiitake mushrooms, and bok choy, plus tea; 5 Annie's peace pasta with parmesan, again with the kid leftovers; 6 sugar snap peas; 7 "club sandwich" wrap with steamed vegetables; 8 roasted cashews with cinnamon and sugar; 9 seltzer

I am amused by the roundness of all my containers. And surprised by the small amount of food (I only ate half of that ridiculously oversized wrap). This is a pretty normal day of eating for me, except we went out to dinner. But not at a decent restaurant, so that wrap was the best thing I could find on the menu. We saw a show and were unable to resist the intoxicating scent of the ($7!) cone of roasted crack cashews.

And as your reward for being interested enough in my daily food intake to read this whole post, here is a clip from the show we saw. Still just as funny as when we first saw it 6(?) years ago.

LOVE Avenue Q! I saw it in New York, and then took SwingDaddy when they came out to the Bay Area.

After seeing yours, I'd be embarrassed to post mine!

"It sucks to be meeeee...."

I also love your food photo collage. :)

Christina said...

Wow, really nice photo collage of your food! Mine would not look that nice. Or with as much green. :)

Love Avenue Q!

Food porn and then porn porn! Yay!

God, I love Avenue Q. Almost as much as I love hearing my 8-year-old belt out, "It sucks to be me!" while wearing his iPod headphones. (I will point out, however, that I wouldn't let his father give him The Internet is for Porn. I'm a fun-killer, is what I am.)

Dang, if I had to photograph and blog about the food I ate, I would be to ashamed to show the truth. I'd have to go on a day diet. Hey, I think I just came up with a great diet idea: every day, you have to photograph what you eat and post about it. For a month. Boy, wouldn't I look fab! Actually, I doubt I could maintain it for a week.
