This is one of my favorite morning fixes; peanut-butter oatmeal with a tall glass of oj!💕 (Don't knock it until you've tried it!) I've been pouring over mountains of research about the properties of whole foods and their wonderful effects on the body. I recently switched over to a plant based diet and thought it could be fun to merge my growing food obsession with art.
So here's a post dedicated to real food, Yum! 🍽
My college diet consisted chiefly of ramen noodles, potatoes, and the occasional 98¢ mac-and-cheese box. (the mac-and-cheese being my favorite!) But once I graduated and took on my freelancing career, I was able to devote the time and resources necessary to buy into a healthy and sustainable plant based diet. Now I simply can't imagine going back! The more and more I learn about natural whole foods, the more I want to share their wonders with the people around me. How many people have no idea what real food is? Where they come from? What good they do for us? What about what they even look like? If there are people as clueless as I was several months ago, there is an opportunity to share the wonders of the natural food world to new minds! To think, I once never knew what a peanut plant looked like or even were or how an asparagus plant sprouted.
I decided it would be worth a try to share these natural wonders the best way I know how - by drawing them! I doodled out the ingredients to my favorite quick and easy breakfast recipe (peanut butter oatmeal!) ; and as they are before being harvested. I would hope depicting them this way would better connect viewers to the true source of our food: nature!
Thanks for reading! I hope to create more plant-based blog logs in the future! I'm always looking for an excuse to draw....
