The necessity of eating

Most food blogs plan what they are going to write about. They spend hours writing recipes, chopping dicing and photographing to get their readers a beautiful plate of food porn. I will admit I'm guilty of this from time to time, but I mostly blog and photograph what I'm having for dinner. Sometimes us food bloggers forget food is eaten out of necessity! Yes it can obviously be enjoyed but do we really always need to obsess over what's for dinner? This modest plate of food came from just that - necessity. I happened to be starving and needed to full my body with some nutrients. It most certainly wasn't the most delicious of blog worthy meal, but a necessary meal none the less.  

Rice bran pasta with cherry tomatoes, white beans, peas, chopped arugula and marinated artichoke with a simple olive oil garlic dressing and a splash of white balsamic vinegar. I got everything my body needed protein, fiber, carbs, vitamins and colourful veg. I guess a thrown together meal like this really illustrates the importance of having a decent pantry and fresh (or frozen) veg on hand.
