OH my..Food Porn.

Well i guess I am going to have a double whammy post tonight. David said to me that he had burst from 1 follower on his blog (me) to four today...So I went over and had a look. Then it struck me. My husband is providing food porn!

Around about the middle of this band journey. Just when I was really changing my eating habits I went through a period I call...the food porn period. I used to hang out at blogs that took pictures of and rated food. My personal favorite was a burger review blog.

I really believe that this period was necessary along the way to help me let go of my old eating. to help me release both the quantity of food I believed was normal and the types of foods. For those of you who aren't long term readers the first item I has to give up was burgers...I still cannot eat one. I can have a bite and that is it-Every time I have tried more..well lets just say there was no down the hatch action..more like up.

Looking at and enjoying the food porn soothed my sadness? or perhaps it fulfilled the need I still had to commune with the foods I could not longer enjoy as much of. Now a year or more down the road and I still think about food. I really think I enjoy it more but I do not feel as much urgency as I did then to look at it. I do not mourn the food (well most of the time) like I once did. I really enjoy the food I can have. When I am full I let it go because I can always have it again another day.

ON display today at David's blog...is Pi Asian pear Pie...in all its nude glory.

I'm so glad I haven't had to give up cheeseburgers (sorry, not trying to rub it in!) but I have had to give up lots of other types of foods. I got stuck on bread one day and am scarred, and tortillas - and I am a TOTAL carbo-holic. So it was really hard for me. :(

I hope one day when you hit goal weight if you ever get your band unfilled or anything, that you can have one again! :)

I don't have a fish stew recipe but have a great band friendly fish pie recipe (http://bandrecipesbysandy.blogspot.com/2010/05/fish-pie.html). I make it and freeze in 1 cup portions for lunches. The nutmeg makes all the difference.

I am so getting into cooking again. But they have to have lots of flavor and spices. And Food Porn can be a great hobby.

Oh don't get me wrong. I don't want a cheeseburger. The bite is enough. that food porn was part of my mourning process...kind of like having pictures of my grandma to talk to just after she died. Smelling the occasional burger or tasting my families is more than enough in exchange for getting up in the morning and pulling on my size 12's.
