I think I may officially be turning into a foodie. I’m not sure when you start considering yourself to be one because it feels like one of those things that creeps up on you, but perhaps what my last several happy snaps are might be an indicator.
I’ve got the Instagram app on iPhone (bsparx if you wants to follow!), which I don’t use that often as I have a tendency to forget, and I realised my last five photos were of food I was eating!
For example (mouse over for food names)…
The strawberries one was taken today along with this one, which I took for the sole purpose of blogging about it;
Taking the strawberries one, then the bread one, is when I had my realisation of possibly turning into a full-blown foodie. I make notes of different food combinations to try out, write down recipe ideas, and I went as far as buying a meal planner from Typo! Sounds food obsessed doesn’t it? I’m thinking this might be attributable to not eating properly for over 5 years (my diet consisted of mainly liquid and semi-solid fare) and now being able to eat like your average person is something to be taken advantage of. Sure I still have to watch myself sometimes because of the D’s and I’m on a gluten free diet, but there’s so much variety even with those two restrictions and after years of my staple being Sustagen (aka Boost) it’s no wonder I’m becoming obsessed!
The GF bread has definitely been an awesome find so far. Before I was getting another GF bread, which came frozen, and while there is nothing wrong with frozen bread, there’s definitely a snag when it doesn’t come pre-sliced. Great tasting bread as it may be, you don’t know how fortunate pre-sliced is until you don’t get it! It’s also the type of bread you can’t thaw out completely and then slice up. Apparently that’s not good for the bread and the use by date is usually past when you buy it leading to the bread having to be kept frozen. Add on the lovely price tag of $10.40 and it’s no wonder I’m raving about something as mundane as new bread.
For those on a GF diet, who haven’t heard of this one, yes it is gluten free! The picture on the right shows the little Gluten Free seal of approval, in case you missed it during all the excitement. And yes it is smaller than the one I was getting, but it’s $5.20, pre-sliced, and low G.I. (another problem, besides price, when it comes to going GF). Not to mention, it doesn’t come frozen! I think I can handle smaller pieces of bread for all of that. Pretty awesome.
So far I’ve had the new bread toasted and it was yum. The next step is non-toasted, sandwich style. I shall report at a later date. If I remember of course…
Back to the original topic, I must be a foodie because I digressed and the topic is still about food! So. Hungry.
