today, I decided to take a shot at gluten-free baking + a little food photography for the fun of it.
eight o clock in the morning, hungry katy, bored mind, this is what i do. i think its a stress reliever of sorts for me. there’s just something about the process of throwing ingredients into a bowl and photographing everything that soothes a frantic soul.
(^and that’s it right there, folks, the height of katy’s poetic self-pity for the day)
I usually try to eat as clean as possible, using as many raw/organic ingredients as I can afford. I mean, let’s be honest here, eating healthy can be ridiculously expensive. obviously junk is going to be cheaper than real food, which poses a problem, as I’ve never really liked junk food at all to begin with. so I kind of live off of fruits, vegetables, oatmeal, and tea simply because I’m a picky eater.
I attempted cutting out gluten from my diet a while ago, but up until recently I hadn’t been very strict about it. I’ve been kind of an obsessive health nut in the past, and I think I’m finally getting back into the groove of things. in fact, as some of you may remember, I hosted a one month raw food challenge on happy little somethings a little over a year and a half ago (more or less), and I just might revive it in the near future. thoughts?
voila. my masterpiece. my mona lisa. my chocolate espresso muffins.
try them out for yourself, they are the definition of heavenly (which, frankly, I was rather impressed by, considering the fact that they are gluten/sugar free for the most part).
paired with english breakfast tea, the combination is to die for.
(over dramatic? yes. food is just important to me, okay?)
ps- on that subject, i want to introduce you to two of my best friends.
