Is it Thursday already?! Heck yea! 😀
So last night while doing some ‘electronic reading’ in bed, I came across a tweet that caught my attention.
It referred to an article that was written by a FitBloggin attendee and one that I found to be a very interesting read.
Although I can see food blogging as a mechanism that may cause one with a history of disordered eating to revert to obsessive and unhealthy habits, I can also see using it as a way of “recovery” of sorts. Using it as a tool to hold oneself accountable. But I think that this refers to those food bloggers that showcase each and every one of their eats, which is not what the whole food blog world includes…
Personally, I don’t photograph everything I eat… nor will I ever. There are many snacks, chocolates, glasses of wine and the such that I enjoy but since this is not a food journal, I don’t find the need to post them. This is not a diet blog, but one where friends can come for healthy recipes and fun food ideas along with fitness. And I think many food blogs are the same way too!
So there’s my two cents, for whatever it’s worth! And if you have an interest in food blogging, which I am sure many of you do since you are reading a food blog and all 😉 I would highly recommend reading this write up too.
What do you friends think about food blogging and it’s role in disordered eating?
Well lunch eats today included a leftovers from last night, which looked way prettier last night so excuse the imposter pics!
Fiesta Black Bean Burger w/ cheese, Mac N’Cheese, Side Salad w/ raspberry vinaigrette
Quite delicious if I may say so myself 😀
After this day of meetings galore is over plans are to do a yoga workout with my beloved Aurorae mat (see my review here) after work and then cook up an undecided dinner… hmmm we shall see what the night brings!
And if you haven’t heard, Caitlin over at HealthyTippingPoint is going to be featured on the Oprah Network for Operation Beautiful! I had the chance to meet her at FitBloggin and she is definitely a chill, down to earth girl so I couldn’t be happier for her 🙂 Check out this video on Wall Street Journal site for more!
