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!
