Today's prompt is to make a dish inspired by art. To me, I think Pitaya bowls are the prettiest food! It's rare to find such hot pink food in nature. It seems like a special work of art when you add in all your toppings: Blackberries contrasting against the hot pink raspberries; a softer pink against the hot pink, Peanut Butter; demostrating a smooth natural color and texture, and then granola and hemp seed confetti makes it look like it has the finishing touches. I would put a print of this on my wall. 


I think all A├žai or Pitaya bowls are beautiful, just as they are created in a bowl. But clearly some come together with a little more finesse than others, depending on how hungry you are and how anxious you are to start eating! On top, I had time and energy, a good space for light, good arrangement of toppings, an artfully spaced composition, a few rogue swirls...

And you see down below, I am famished, too hungry for good lighting, no sparse pink areas for contrast, just piled toppings on, and starting taking a bite while tapping the photo button, almost shaking the phone before I got a shot.

And so you see, life is art. Above and below.


Truth is I majored in art and talked my way through many subjective critiques, and have learned that how you present your piece has everything to do with how everyone will perceive it. So tell a grand story, true or made-up, because people will be more interested in it, and will find more things to like about it if they know the story of how it came to be. 

Good thing we're just here for the food though..

  1. Lovely! I always wonder how people on Instagram have the time and energy in the morning to style their breakfast photos. I'm shovelling it in my face as quickly as possible!
