More Great Food Pictures of the Week

By Johnisfit @johnisfit

All in all I didn't have a terrible day on the eating front yesterday but since I didn't record almost half of what I ate and I didn't stick by my new plan of only eating 75% of what I'm putting in front of me, I simple can't give myself credit for Day Six of my quest for my #7daychip. Bummer! Also I gained 2 pounds this week, no doubt caused by not exercising and having a ton of salty sunflower seeds yesterday. My plan for this upcoming week is to take a new angle at the #7daychip, this time I'm going to focus on exercise rather than eating. We'll see how it goes.

In the meanwhile, as I have done before, I wanted to highlight some of the great food pics that have caught my eye this week. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the past week by other bloggers.

Weekly Food Pictures

Veggies

I love me a sexy mise en place and this one by Beth from Beth's Journey does it for me. I also love the fact she took the time to organize it and arrange on a clean cutting board just for the photo. Neat little piles of green pepper, red onion, Italian parsley, English cucumber, tomato, and spinach chiffonade. Awesome.

Salmon Patty

Nicole from Prevention RD always takes such gorgeous food pictures and any woman who puts an avocado in her website header is alright by me.

:-)
This week the photo of hers that caught my eye was a salmon patty made from canned salmon. But the part I liked the best was her quick tip on the topping – a light mayo with dijon mustard and capers. I always have a jar of capers in my fridge but other than chicken piccata I haven't found many uses for them. This would have made a good addition to my omelet this morning (see below) if I had been thinking.

Pizza

I was attracted to this picture of a mini pizza by Marisa from Loser for Life because of exactly how mini it really was (that's one small pizza!) and because of how minimalist her dinner was with just that pizza a some orange slices. I have to to learn to do this – you can always eat more later if you are hungry, right?

Corn Cob

Of course it can always be grilling season no matter where you live, but here in Minnesota my grill tends to stay packed up until we get all the lounge furniture setup around the pool. Our pool is closed and the furniture is still under wraps. Highs this week were in the 40s with rain. Ugh. Maybe next week will be better and once the grill comes out I plan to do a lot of cooking like grilled fruit and vegetable kabobs like these by Suzi from Spunkysuzi working towards a healthier me. Add a little turkey sausage and corn on the cob and you have a beautiful plate of food that seems like it would be pretty good for you as long as you can minimize the oil used in the cooking and the butter sometimes slathered on later.

Strawberries

This bright bowl of blueberries and strawberries by Biz from My Bizzy Kitchen eventually made it's way into a cooked cobbler, but I like it just the way it is – this is a combination I'll eat occasionally because I like how it looks and how it tastes. Throw on a dollop of something white and you have a great 4th of July dessert.

Edamame

Beth from Beth's Journey get's a two-fer today as this bowl of edamame caught my eye. Like her, this is one of my favorite appetizers to get when eating Japanese. I love edamame! For the uninitiated these are young soybeans still in their pods. I tried once to make at home but had a bad experience as I could tell the soybeans were fermented, which fortunately I was able to tell right away as I pulled from the package and not as I was trying to eat them!

Salmon Omelet

OK, so this one is from John of John is Fit. Wait, that's me! Yeah, I just really liked this dish and picture and decided to include it since I don't plan to include in another post here today. Best part about having salmon for dinner is having leftover salmon to put in an omelet in the morning. Included a little cook sliced lemon, a sliced avocado, an English muffin half and a little sprig of dill as a garnish. I know the foodies among you hate garnishes you can't eat but what can I say, I learned how to cook at Denny's. Tasted great although you really needed to include a bite of avocado with each bite of salmon and egg since it was the only fat I had in the dish. Really wish I had remembered to try Nicole's capered mayo. Overall, great way to start Easter.

One thing that jumped out at me as I compare my photo with the other photos that inspired me this week – there is so much more food on mine. Clearly, portion size is one of my problems. I easily could have gone with half an avocado and a 2-egg omelet instead of a 3-egg. Half as much salmon too.

I'm learning.

Do food pictures inspire you? Have you changed any eating behavior because of what you have seen on someone's blog?
