Food porn

Recently my dear friend Ruchi wrote a post about how most food porn features decidedly unhealthy foods. It makes sense in some ways... porn is by definition photographic fantasy, and right now I am fantasizing about vanilla bean gelato swimming in a pool of Bailey's Irish Cream, topped with almonds. (I just came up with that off the top of my head and man do I wish I was eating that right now...)

But healthy cooking is my favorite hobby. I long since stopped subscribing to Bon Appetit and Gourmet (seriously? who has that many dinner parties?) but I am an avid fan of Cooking Light.

So I couldn't resist Ruchi's call for some healthy food porn.

Here's a quick and easy "recipe" that I threw together a few weeks ago inspired by the amazing heirloom cherry tomatoes growing in my mom's back yard. Bean, who has yet to meet a tomato she doesn't like, DEVOURED it. So I recreated it tonight, paired with grilled zucchini and a grass-fed organic steak from the farmers market. Yum!

Summer Tomato and Corn Salad

15+ organic cherry tomatoes, halved
1 ear sweet corn
1 slice red onion, minced
~2 tsp fruity olive oil
1 splash balsamic vinegar
~1/4 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper to taste

Cut the raw corn kernels away from the cob (this step is messy but worth it). Combine corn kernels, tomatoes, red onion, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Let sit for ~15 minutes to let flavors meld. Enjoy wholeheartedly.

hello friends, I agree with Ruchi's comment on his comment about how most food porn features decidedlyunhealthy foods. This is a great end to the problem we are currently living with the increasing levels of obesity

Use adjectives like gnawed, unhygienic, bad that would
make a difference to you. The open wounded part can lead to an infection not only to your
fingernails but also in your mouth. According to Web - Md males tend to bite their nails more than women.

This paste will be applied directly to the skin tag 3
times a day until the skin tag falls off. Small and soft skin growths
acquired on the skin are called skin tags. But since something was
happening I decided to keep trying for a few more nights.

Even if to say most computers do not come with built-in hardware
graphics accelerators, the built-in video cards still come with significant memory
ranging upwards from 64 MB. Why waste hours in designing while they are available at your mouse click.
Another important element of web design
involves the visibility of the website.

This meant that any member of the public or business that needed legal representation first needed to go to a solicitor, who would then refer them to
the barrister. This is why the absolute worst will come out in
parties in this type of litigation. Debts and assets might talk about what the couple has, including all securities, shares, property, cars, and current debts.

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad

My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
