...IF WINE IS FOOD, THEN FOOD IS ART....

I was tidying up my photo library and came across some photos of food I had prepared. I guess I thought they looked pretty after I had plated them. As in design, or art, I obviously thought the texture, proportion, layout and colour combinations were photo worthy. I also realized, with a few exceptions, that all of the photos featured food with low carbs. 

Baked  chicken with sautéed veggies and fiddleheads 



grilled portobello mushrooms  stuffed with tuna, topped with parmesan cheese and broiled, served with spring greens, grilled tomatoes and vinaigrette



Lianne at Christmas made homemade turkey soup with tomatoes, chick peas,
 quinoa and spinach 



 New Years Eve assorted cheese platter with grapes, dark chocolate, walnuts, pistachios, almonds  and homemade biscotti...this is the low carb exception



fruit salad topped off with toasted walnuts, pomegranate seeds, cinnamon and lightly
 drizzled with agave syrup


 baked chicken in apple cider vinegar, carmelized onion, mushrooms, green beans and yellow
 tomatoes, served on bed of crisp romaine


thinly sliced red and green apples, blood orange slices lightly sprinkled with cinnamon and 
served with pomegranate seeds and greek yogurt with agave syrup...BTW, this is one of the
 easiest and most crowd pleasing desserts EVER

...and in case you are wondering about the title of this post....Wine IS Food!

It looks so good and healthy too! I'll have to try that dessert, sounds perfect for a light finish to a meal.

I'm so glad we all agree that wine IS food. One of my all time favourite things to do is have a wine pairing dinner. that is when you really know it is indeed a food group...with antioxidents.

May I just say YUM? :-) I need these recipes - everything looks SO delicious! You did a great job with both the plating and the photos. My photos of food always look so unappetizing!

Thanks you Kelly, but I can honestly say that I did not use any recipes.... Just tons of bright fresh veggies, and baked chicken.
