As a longtime art kid, I have found food to be another artistic medium with which to express myself. I'm starting to think more about how the colors and texture of ingredients will compliment each other, not just the flavors. I'm playing with garnishes and different ways of cutting vegetables for variety and visual appeal. I'm using different colors or shapes of bowls or plates in order to accent or contrast the food. I put effort forth to make my food look beautiful. It makes me feel connected and inspired and creative, and that makes me feel alive.
Think about how awesome food looks when you order it at a restaurant (a good restaurant, that is). People pull out their cameras. They "ooh" and "ah" and say things like, "Oh my, this just looks too beautiful to eat!". They talk about how gorgeous their meal was the whole ride home in the car. They tell their coworkers about it the next day at the office. They show you pictures on their iPhones.
Yes, we all love beautiful food.
