To those of you who have come over form the #tasteofeire page firslty thank you and welcome. Here I try to detail the food/recipes posted on social media so you guys can get a clearer understanding of how it is made and what little effort it takes to cook delicious food. I am always on the lookout for new ideas so if there are any suggestions please feel free to engage with me on here or on Instagram etc. as I am really interested in learning more about food, cooking, ingredients, diets, health and everything in between.
I eat therefore I lift
My name is Shane, 27 from Dublin. I am currently a F/T business student in DIT. I almost never post the nutritional value of food but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. I measure everything to the gram bar the veggies unless I’m eating large quantities.
I’m not a PT, not quite shredded either (although working hard on that) but mainly I just love to Eat Delicious food and need to compensate for that. The point is, dieting, eating healthy, counting macros etc isn’t my area of expertise but cooking certainly is. Somehow I’m trying to combine the two and strike a balance that allows me to stay on track but also enjoy it at the same time. Real food doesn’t have to be boring and certainly shouldn’t make you fell guilty either. As Tony Bourdain said ” the body is not a temple, it’s a roller coaster that goes up and down so enjoy the ride.
The reality is, the food photographs on Instagram are only a small percentage of what is eaten throughout the week. Everyday “foodporn” on a plate is unrealistic and unsustainable unless you can stay ant home all day and cook it. Usually, the visually appealing food is made maybe twice or three times a week. Most of the time it’s basic and eaten out of a lunch box. Nutritional value is far greater than the visual so be sure to lay those foundations first and then move onto the aesthetics.
