Thoughts on Food: Now and Then

This Sunday, after my runger finally stopped raging and I had not been the nicest person to be around for a few hours in the afternoon, I got to thinking about my relationship to food a year ago, or two or five or ten, as compared to what it currently is. There’s a huge difference between now and then, and I’m grateful for it, but change didn’t happen overnight. It was gradual over time, so that sometimes I’m still surprised when I realize how far I’ve come.

WIAW #50: Half Marathon Weekend Eats

I cannot believe this is the 50th time I’ve written a WIAW post. They’ve become a staple on the blog. I found, after years of wondering why in the world someone would bother taking a picture of their food, that they’re actually some of the easiest and most enjoyable posts to write, because I like eating, cooking and baking, and it’s nice to think others might admire the result of my endeavors, or just be interested in the combinations of eats I create. And I find inspiration for my own meals by reading similar posts on other blogs. So here we go again, this time with a rundown of my eats the weekend of a half marathon in New York City.

WIAW #38

This WIAW is all about my eats on the (third) to last day of 2015, one I spent in Connecticut relaxing with some old friends from growing up and preparing to greet the arrival of the new year. The day kicked off with a big slice of my Pumpkin Apple Spice Loaf, made with a little less flour and a little extra coconut oil for an especially moist and doughy treat. I had it with a yogurt with peanut butter and blueberries and a mug of decaf coffee, as well as half an apple.
