These last months I’ve been going through a lot of recipes (all clean living and paleo), The thing that struck me was that a lot of the pictured recipes looked grey and dead. Wonder why it is like that. No wonder people stick to what they know.
I don’t eat food just because it’s healthy. For me food has to smell good, taste good and look appealing. If I want to use a new recipe it has to be better than what I usually cook.
When I cook it’s like a dance that I love where I use my senses. I smell the food. Like when I shop f.ex. strawberries, I never buy them if I can’t smell strawberry. I always taste so the food is tasty. If you forget to taste the food often is bland. It has to look good so I want to eat the meal. For me an appealing look is colourful and nicely arranged.
The picture is from yesterday where I celebrated a good result, so I made a 3 course meal. The meal was based on what I could find in the shop so it became: As appetizer green asparagus with serano, homemade paleo mayo on mixed salad. Then hot beetroot with feta, fresh spinach, walnuts, dried figs and a little mayo. For dessert it was chocolate mousse and fresh raspberries. The beverage was organic apple juice. All made as clean living and mostly paleo.
This was a good meal. Smelled good, looked good and tasted amazing.
