Living with diabetes every single second of every single day at times completely dismantles the joy, creativity and simple beauty in food I usually find. I am a food person. I love shopping for it, chopping it, slicing it, cooking it, presenting it and Especially eating it!
There are days the number pressure, the counting, the accounting for everyone at the table, choosing the dining spot and cautiously studying the menu as if dinner were the bar exam, sends me into a "foodie funk".
I took some photos of brunch this past weekend, watching it being prepared, plated and presented inspired and reminded me of the beauty and power food can provide us with as well as the emotional and physical impacts. Yesterday I had the chance to brainstorm with our next TuDiabetes Talks guest, diabetes artist Justus Harris, he too has fallen in love with the beauty of food. Here is a photo of eggs from my Sunday brunch and some of Justus' beautiful pieces...
Please share your food inspirations that go beyond the numbers.
Hugs and Art,
