Do eating habits have a maturity index? If so, I'm toddler stage. I have to put some of my snacks in the garage to ensure portion control.
I used a macro 180mm lens on this arrangement of antique hydrangeas to highlight a feature of the arrangement that I totally missed while looking at the whole silver pitcher and blooms. The curve of the pitcher, the reflected color tones from my porch on its metallic surface and the density and deep colors of the nested blooms themselves live comfortably in this marco view.
It relates to so many things.
I am finding that in order to keep to the 2 snacks and 3 meal regimen that I started last Tuesday, I have to put any trigger “snacks” in the garage: tamari almonds and mixed nuts. I can keep hummus and celery sticks in the house without a problem but mixed nuts?
Nope. Some other snacks I have just thrown out entirely: the chickpea snack crackers I bought at Whole Foods. Having one portion of that at a time does not work this week. They were not that expensive so throwing them out was an option.
But mixed nuts are too expensive so my compromise is to leave them in the garage and I go out once a day with a little cup or a snack bag if I am going out for the day and put in my two ounces and then return to the house or my car.
I'm a grown woman. Hiding my food in plain sight seems juvenile but so be it. It is a macro moment in the grand scheme of things, but it works just like this slice of a antique hydrangea in the silver pitcher.
We simply have to adapt strategies that work regardless of our maturity level.
