May this blog find you in groovy spirits.

This blog is about food and art, specifically, how food is art. The shapes, forms, and colors it brings makes food as art (F.A.A.).   It is widely expressed that we eat with our eyes before we even move to our other senses.

According to Marinello, in her blog “Do you eat with your eyes”¹, the sight, shape, and consistency of food is what determines our appeal to it thus making it appetizing or not. In an article, published by Science Direct titled, “You eat with your eyes first” by Delwiche, she states that “visual stimuli have been shown to alter the perception of taste, smell, and flavor” and goes further to mention specific visual cues, such as “gloss, evenness, and shape”, as determining factors in altering our taste and flavor of the food.²

For the purpose of this blog, I was interested to see what visuals/images came to folks at first sight. I asked the question, “What comes to you or resonate with you when you see the this image (#1)? I have captioned the responses under that image. Although, these food were in liquid form, one can clearly see the shapes and forms it took. The other two images, I would like to know what came to mind at first sight for you?

I hope that you are able to find pleasures in finding art expressed through food or food expressing itself in creative ways. It is these simple but intriguing aspects of how we connect with food, beyond the smell, taste, and even sounds, to create a holistic experience of nourishing our body, mind, and spirit.

About Ynav

Greetings Beloved. Thank you for visiting my blog. I am passionate about the arts, specifically, dancing and writing poems. I am currently on a journey of discovering and experiencing healing dances, such as Biodanza and Dance Meditation. I am also working on my first poem book and other artistic projects. I was born and created to dance since the inception of my being in my mother’s womb. My bedroom has always been my stage and my mirrors my audience. I am now on a journey to release my birth given art and talent to the universe. I dance to bring my inner being peace, calmness and also to bring these same feelings to other fellow beings. I love the art of expressing your deepest and truest emotions through the movement of your body. I thank you mother nature and father universe for allowing me to share such a gift, for I am present now to introduce such an art to your universe. Dancing has always played an integral part in my life when I needed that extra boost in my esteem, that release of mental and emotional tension, and when I wanted to feel alive. I was also aware that when I danced in social settings, it brought other’s joy and a sense of calmness. I started to analyze and put two and two together and discovered that when I dance, I not only bring that same feeling into my body and psyche but that I affect others with it.
