Lately I've been trying to think of ways to add more veggies into my diet. Eating fresh fruits is easy for me, but veggies have been a mental roadblock. Sure I'll throw spinach on my sandwich or whatever, but I needed to be intentional about including them as often as possible.
I've been going out to the farmer's market on Saturdays to get more inspiration. This weekend I got a seriously beautiful haul!
I noticed last week when I bought even a few items that having beautiful food makes me want to cook meals worthy of them. So yesterday I started grilling some of my goodies. I was struck by how beautiful it was! So I took a picture.
Then I thought, "At least once a day, I should have a beautiful meal that is worth photographing."
I don't actually want to be a food blogger or anything like that (the world has more than enough), but I really like the premise, even if it's just for my eyes. Is that candy bar beautiful? A handful of broken chips? A boring can of coke?
But how about bright and lovely fruits and veggies? Yes! Even if it's just a photo in my mind's eye.
Surround yourself with beauty- heck- even eat it up!
