Delicious, rustic and stunningly rich vegan food inspires me.
I can’t take credit for this shot,
but @mississippivegan’s work is among those that consistently “wow” me.
It seems impossible to avoid those minute tutorials on Facebook
zipping through all the ways to use
cheese and bacon in a recipe. Or as of today, how-to dye your pasta salad red, white and blue (#festive).
To a certain extent, I can agree that flaunting your brunch is a distraction.
Some refer to it as #foodporn, and some argue that fetishizing food in this way is not
a solution to any real problems. I’ll have to admit though, the plant-based food
photos like these – those that aren’t fronting to look like familiar meat and cheese foods –
Content like this inspires me to cook, and exercise my creativity with food;
with colors, flavors and origins.
There were no animals harmed in the making of this food.
More importantly, the components of this food are diverse and nutritious.
I’m inspired because this food is not only holistic.
In these dire circumstances,
food like this is provocative.
