Art is Food, Food is Art

Art is Food, Food is Art

Who said that food is just that – a food? Sceptics, perhaps. In reality, there is as much creativity about the things that are stored in the fridge as about the oil paints. Have you ever thought that you can make food look like art or you can make art from food? Oh, and if you think that these two categories are quite the same, you are very much mistaken.

Nowadays there are a lot of artist who experiment with materials, space and concepts. There are few among them who use food to create their masterpieces. Have you ever heard about foodscapes, for instance? They are created by British photographer Carl Warner. Not everyone might recognise that everything on his photographs is made of the actual edible items. However, once you look closer, you can find everything from rice to seafood, from broccoli to bread there. Carl creates conventional landscapes using very unconventional materials. He admits that the goal is to make the viewers believe that they are looking at a real scene and then make them smile once they realise that everything is made of food.

(NC)—As the warmer weather sets in, so does our appetite for lighter fare and an increased energy level. Spring clean your health regime by treating yourself to wholesome lunch options and an active new lifestyle to get yourself back on track for the summer months. Here are three ways to get you started.
1. Re–introduce activity: After months of using the “it's cold out” excuse for not getting your 45 minutes a day, it is time to get back into the swing of things. Using your lunch break in the middle of the day to enjoy a brisk walk is a great way to get moving again.


Enhance your health with freshly grown herbs
(NC)—Did you know that one tablespoon of fresh oregano contains the same amount of antioxidants as a medium sized apple?
We know that antioxidants in our bodies are essential to good health. Many fruits and vegetables provide them, but research shows that fresh oregano is at the top of the list in antioxidant activity. Adding fresh herbs to your diet is an easy way to include significant amounts of antioxidants and increase the health value of a meal without adding extra calories–and you can easily grow them right in your own backyard garden or in containers on your patio or balcony.


Pare down your portions to trim down your waistline
(NC)—We live in a world where “mega, super and grande” sizes have become the norm. Many people use these plus–sized portions to validate their binge–eating habits. Some use over–consumption as a way to comfort emotional distress, others take the “see food” diet approach and always finish what's on their plate.
Here are a few tips I like to follow to ensure I am eating the proper portions.
