What I Ate Wednesday – A Series of Unphotogenic Events

Every Wednesday* I link up with Jenn at Peas and Crayons and her What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) blog party.


*I skipped last Wednesday and kinda missed it. But I’ve posted just about every other Wednesday for the last year.

For this week’s WIAW post, I photographed my eats on Monday. As I perused the photos, I noticed a theme. They didn’t look so good. First off, the are all iPhone pictures, taken on the go, so lighting isn’t the greatest. And, honestly, most of the foods don’t look all that appetizing*. See what you think:

*You can’t judge a food’s taste by it’s photogenicity.  That’s not really a word, but it should be.  How about photogenic-ness?  

Breakfast:

Another protein bite, a Cocoa Cookie Dough Ball (from Let Them Eat Vegan) and a coconut flour tropical muffin (recipe coming soon) and some water

Lunch:

Carrots + a quinoa/chickpea/sprouted bean concoction mixed with Mmm Sauce and Cilantro.  Tasted so much better than it looks (and sounds)

Afternoon Drink 1:

After School Baking:

Dinner:

Kids: black bean nachos and fruits and veggies

Grown Ups: Salsa Quinoa with Black Beans atop lettuce, topped with avocados and tortilla chips

(in honor of the ‘add an extra cup of veggies’ challenge, I added an extra cup of romaine)

Dessert:

Coconut Milk Ice Cream Sandwich

So – clearly these photos aren’t winning any awards.  Between the brown protein bites, the gray brown lunch combo and the pond water kombucha, I’m not making my eats look too appetizing.  Rest assured they were all quite tasty.  I may eat ugly food, but I do not eat bad tasting food.  A lady must have her standards.

What’s the most unphotogenic thing you’ve eaten lately?
