Food-Porn Friday

Okay. Since I never indulge my inner fat girl’s sweet tooth without severe consequence (aka: my face in the toilet), I often like to torture indulge myself with food porn. I look at recipes, cooking blogs, watch Alton Brown make amazingly delicious things, and drool over really, really pretty pictures of food.

Why do I enjoy looking at things I can’t have? Well, because they’re pretty. It’s art. People don’t get it; just because that box of chocolate cupcakes might, in fact, send me into a spiral of puke and passing-outtery, it doesn’t mean I can’t look at the pictures and think, Wow, that’s lovely.  And hey, pictures are calorie-free. Now, a month after surgery, this would’ve made me cry. Now? I can eat a cookie. Is it worth it? Not really. Now I’m like the old lady that puts plastic on her furniture and likes to look, but not touch.

Found on Amy Atlas Events. I’m glad I don’t live in NYC. I would probably hire her to just fill my house with enough candy to implode the universe.

And these? Need no explanation. Brownies on a stick. Come on. It’s like they did this just to get to me. I might just have to order some for Christmas.

And? S’more brownies. Oh my. There’s the recipe at the link. For better or for worse.

Okay. That’s enough food porn for one day. I feel dirty now, I need to go take a shower.

    I agree.
    I love food as an art form. A man that I would be totally happy with would be a food photographer. Because food is so beautiful, especially high-calorie, sugary foods.
    There’s this store named Lush, I don’t know if you have it where you live, but it’s basically a store filled with pastel and chocolate coloured goodies that aren’t edible… they are supposed to go in your hair and bath and whatnot but I love just wandering around the place. Looking at bathbombs shaped like cup cakes and face masks that smell of mocha.

      This Lush place sounds like heaven! I’m a total sucker for all things cupcake/sweets, especially if it’s something that I can’t eat/gain weight from. Heh. =)

    You should check it out, they sell online too ((http://www.lush.com/). The melting marshmallow bath melt is my fave, it is so hard not to just stuff it in your mouth. I love stocking up on them and taking a bath when I’m craving candy or something. The worst part comes during my time of the month when I use up everything :s

    Ooo my! The body lotions look amazing. I am so on this. I just hope I really *don’t* open it, smell it, then decide that, hey, maybe it tastes good, too? Haha. Thanks for the link!

    Well, it will definitely make a good mental deterrent for me… hi mouth. FYI, apparently all the flab that has been showing up recently hasn’t convinced you that anything that looks good to eat isn’t always good for you but maybe some dried jasmine leaves and the taste of soap will help.
    Yeah, I highly recommend it. They have some neat stuff for hangovers etc feeling sick to the stomach has never felt better,

Griffin H. Bat was very, very fat. She had WLS in 2007 and has gone from 314 pounds to 120ish, and often wonders where her mind went along with all that gooey adipose matter. Even with new guts, she still thinks about cupcakes and their confectionary goodness. She feels like a bear that has lost its stuffing, but she won't hesitate to tell you how lovely you are.
