During our weeks of vacationing, my Fast Food Fri entires fell by the wayside. In the meantime, another month has passed and it is time to post my second entry with my photography blog circle; this months theme: TEXTURE. In a group of talented photographers who will also shoot their version of this topic, I am pushed to maximize creativity. I decided to combine the topic with my usual approach to easy, gluten-free food ideas, that are family-friendly.
Here goes it.
I love food. I love that summer brings fresh, healthy foods in abundance. I love getting my kids involved in choosing, washing, cutting and even playing with their food. They approach leisurely afternoons, like today, as a science laboratory. We look at the skin, the seed, the pits… we even had a lot of laughs as I cracked open my first coconut (thank you google for a variety of helpful techniques.) I got to do my photography shoot, and we all had a bright, juicy, crunchy meal.
Fruits and Veggies with some sliced meats and cheeses: a perfect summer meal. I am so happy to serve my kids foods that don’t have an ingredient list. So, so simple: carrot. grape. celery. pepper. strawberry…. no colorings or flavorings or difficult-to-pronounce-faux-anything. Simply, and naturally gluten-free. Based on Victoria’s lunch creation, I am pretty sure they had fun too.
Enjoy my photo interpretation of Tasty Textures. When you’re finished, take a walk through a Korean Garden with my fellow photographer, blogger and military spouse, Karen Davis. http://www.celebratelifewithus.blogspot.com/2012/07/texture.html
