It started with a salad....


Thanks to a new article in Marie Claire about food bloggers, I was introduced to the "Big Six." Six female food bloggers who spend everyday chronicling what they ate and how much running/yoga/spinning they did to burn it off. And oh yeah, they get have millions of followers commenting on their every post. What?! I was just getting used to reading (and feeling bad about) fashion blogs! Now I have to look longingly at the perfect hummus and nutritional yeast salad that some skinny girl who just took a BodyPump class ate? I should be eating that salad! I need to take that class!! And I definitely want to feel smug and content that I finished off my meal with fresh orange slices (instead of the orange gummy pumpkins I actually ate)!!!


Her vs. Me

Even the lighting in her photos is better! You can see how a gal can start feeling insecure. So, blond, toned, oatmeal eating Kath of katheats.com - can I be you today? I promise to only pour organic rice milk into my french pressed tea while I munch on my properly proportioned snack of 7 raw almonds.


And then can you pretty please tell me what the hell "nutritional yeast" is? Thanks.

  3. I read this article and then had to go check out the blogs. They'll all posted hateful responses to the article which I find hilarious. Taking a photo of nearly everything you eat kind of counts as an eating disorder in my book.

  4. I agree. Can we talk about the ONE apricot Kath brought (and documented) on her 7.6 mile run: http://katheats.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/IMG_7188-640x427-2.jpg Nothing our of the ordinary there!
