So Over It: Food porn!!!

Warning: rant ahead. If you are overtly sensitive to critique, you might consider skipping this one. 🙂

OK, so by “food porn” I mean all these Instagram, Hipstagram, Twitter pics and Facebook photos of… FOOD! Yes, I too, like to eat and cook, and I have been guilty of committing this sin also. I’m not perfect! Shocker, I know. But seriously guys, what is the social world coming to when every day my feed is cluttered by more or less successful pictures of what people ate for lunch, dinner or their newest culinary creation. So, you can cook! Alright! Good for you! I don’t know what people expect – praise? Yes, yes. All social media are essentially made for pure narcissistic self-promotion, but come on . …most of us cook every day if we want to eat. Unless you’re showing off an extremely extravagant and extraordinary meal that took weeks of preparation and/or required safety gear for the making – I don’t really care! What’s funny is that most of the time the pics are just of ordinary stuff, such as a salad, a noodle mix or meat and veggies. So you can chop and sauté…. mazel tov!
