Confessions of a Health Blogger 5 (The Good Food Gallery)

When you look at The Good Food Gallery  instagram account you can’t help but be impressed with all the healthy and perfectly laid out meals. But blogger Josie confesses that…

The Good Food Gallery Confession Healthy&Psyched

“Sometimes I photograph my dinner, then add WAY more food to the plate.

Especially post workout if I get home absolutely starving! When I make dinners, I quite often decide to prep plenty of food (roasted veggies being a prime example!) for meals over the next few days. However once the pretty meal has been photographed, I add loads more food to the plate, completely overloading it and making it very un-insta-worthy! Girl’s gotta eat you know…”

To be honest I’m guilty of this as well. I sprinkle a bit of granola on my smoothie, snap the photo then its granola and cinnamon overload!

So remember don’t compare what’s on your plate to what you see on social media. But if you’re interested in reading some more tips on how to make your food ‘insta-worthy’ check out these posts 1, 2.

    Love this post. Haha! Yes! We think that most food bloggers are guilty of this; it occasionally happens to us too. People should take all food photographs with a pinch of salt. Your food doesn’t always have to be insta-worthy, just appetising and hopefully inspiring so we can all eat healthier and more enjoyable meals. 🙂

      Thanks. I don’t think I’d believe someone who said they never do this!! 🙂

      Too right. Most of my best meals are a total mess!
