As part of a 40 day yoga challenge I'm undertaking (at Lyon's Den in TriBeca), I must maintain a food journal.
This should be easy for me, yes? Hmmm....
Writing down what I eat is easy for me. But I felt as though there was an opportunity in this project to challenge myself.
Challenge is the very reason I signed up for this challenge. You following me? Thought not.
Lately I've been feeling that I am relying on old tricks. For recipes, for social interactions, for career moves. FOR LIFE.
Like if I could just sous vide instead of sauté, I might have a break through. Or what if cardamom is the difference? I've often felt it is, but when I try to sprinkle it on myself instead of in my almond milk chai, nothing happens. Cardamom is not fairy dust, people. Mental note.
Anyway. With this food journal, I wanted to challenge myself to be creative every day. To paint my food. Or think about it visually in a different way than just photographing it. This is the result.
It's not fabulous. It's not meant to be a masterpiece, but a place where I can play, not be too serious and see what works.
Just like my kitchen!
