52 linked: vegetables

veggies


This was a tough post for me given that I am not a fan of food photography. Unless it's a cupcake or fruit, most food loses all appeal to me when photographed. I'm not even a fan of food photography in cooking magazines. (Of course, that said I will probably love all of my linked friends' veggie photos.) Without further ado - the veggies I chopped-up Wednesday night for fajitas. They were very yummy.

I've always been curious - if you had to choose between fruit or veggies for the rest of your life, which would you choose? Veggies all the way for me. It's always been veggies. With a side of ranch, of course. What about you?...

Yum, now I'm craving fajitas!

I would definitely choose veggies over fruit - and the side of ranch wouldn't hurt either :)

Amanda Kelley said...

I can't do food either, so I "cheated" on this week's post :) But like you...yummy chocolate-ship cookies, yes now I can photograph them.

I agree with Heidi---fajitas sound good, even at 8:30 in the morning!

Love me some fajitas!!

And I guess I would choose veggies over fruit, if I had to. Although my daughter reminds me almost daily that tomatoes are a fruit (because we eat them almost daily) and they are my FAVORITE. So that puts me in a tough spot if I actually had to choose. :)

And ranch dressing?? Yes, please!!!!

I love food photography :) And I don't think I could pick for the rest of my life - we eat WAY to much of both around here! My kids would starve without one of them! It's trouble getting them to eat meat not veggies and fruit!

Kristin said...

I would choose veggies too!! and fajitas sound delicious right now and it's only 7:45am....I'm in trouble today!

Naomi said...

Yummm fajitas. I am not a fan of food photography. Actually, I am amazed that those who can do it but I just am not very good at it! I am not sure what I would choose....can I choose carbs? lol.

Simply Sara said...

well, it looks like i'm the odd man out... as much as i love veggies (and i do love them) i simply could not live without fruit. how could i eat another bowl of yogurt again without grapes or blueberries in it?! :)

your fajita veggies look soooo yummy.
i think we'll have fajitas tonight :)

Tracey said...

I'm echoing Heidi's comment...now I'm craving fajitas!
And I'm the opposite...I've always LOVED styled food photography especially when it's simplistic. I just have never done much of it myself bc I tend to gravitate towards people photos. So this week was a fun diversion from the usual.
And that is a tough choice btwn veggies and fruit. I think in the end I'd choose fruit bc I couldn't go without strawberries, or the local nectarines that are grown here in the summer. They are amazing!

Well, now I just have to keep practicing with the food photos...gotta figure it out.
I Need my fruit!!
Dinner sounds great.

Heather M. said...

yum! i want to make some fajitas now.

call me weird but i absolutely LOVE food photography, even more so in the last few months. and up until a few months ago, i would have picked fruit to eat for the rest of my life but veggies have grown on me a lot since i've been eating so many of them. :)

Jessica said...

I LOVE fajitas. I have a hard time photographing food, too, and I don't know why it's so hard to do! And definitely veggies.

JennD said...

I am the worst food photographer ever which is why I photographed my youngest consuming her veggies rather than the veggies themselves. :)

I would eat fruit all the way. I don't mind veggies once I'm eating them but it's such a pain to cut them all up. Fruit is just so much easier. And I have a wicked sweet tooth. :)

Heidi said...

Cucumber popsicles are probably not what you're thinking - what it is is a cucumber that we peel, leave whole, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper, wrap a paper towel around the bottom of it and hold it in our hands and nibble on it, a little at a time :) So crunchy and delicious!!

I'm Veronica said...

yes there are reminders everywhere that I should be getting more veggies, thanks for this! Happy weekend and thanks for stopping by Life in Pictures!

Michelle said...

Oh Yum! Fajitas!! Makes my mouth water. And if I HAD to choose, I'd choose fruit. :)
Or cheese.

tracy said...

your fajita veggies look delicious! i would choose veggies too because i'm a salty girl. not sweet.

Shawntae said...

I love food photography and wish I were better at it!

And I would definitely choose fruit over veggies.:)

Marvett Smith said...

I would choose fruits for sure! I love food photography myself, and I can never walk past any of those green vegetables without wanting to get my camera out. These bell peppers look delicious!
