Embracing Imperfection as a Healthy Food Blogger

The Honour System

Interested in a sneak peek inside the life of a healthy food blogger? Here’s a glimpse, according to this food blogger in particular. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m semi OCD. I’ll say semi because I’m not a total neat freak, but I have ironed sheets in the past.

But being a tad OCD, I do have a schedule that I like to follow and with this website in particular I have set the standard for myself to post three times a week. For the most part it, I don’t have any issues maintaining that schedule. The last couple of weeks, however, have been different. I’ve had a little more on the go in my personal life than usual and I’ve had a few more kitchen fails than I normally do. Recipes I thought would be no-brainers have turned out bland (maple walnut breakfast bars lacking in sweetness) or inedible (jalapeno brown rice that set off an inferno in my esophagus). A few nights we ate scrambled eggs for dinner and there were a couple of trips to our local pizzeria. Not particularly blog-worthy.

So here I am with nothing to post and having to accept it. I’m not really that blogger with stories of my day-to-day life to fall back on. My day-to-day is so repetitive and unremarkable. Don’t get me wrong, though! I would not have it any other way. I love routine and knowing what to expect.

Did someone say OCD?

Lol. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyways, my whole point to this post is that I need to embrace the imperfection. Things aren’t always going to just fall into place and when obstacles pop up, I can move around them or even bust through them, but they can’t stop my stride. Just because I  miss a few posts, it’s not the end of the world. The main thing is not tossing up just any old post. If it’s not good, it’s not good. If the photos are crap or the recipe lacks flavour, it needs to be revisited until I love it all.

It’s tough when a lot of hard work and costly organic ingredients go down the drain but it’s a hazard of the job. Luckily it’s a job I love doing.

I hope you all can feel it. xxoo

  1. Funny enough, I am posting tomorrow morning about a very similar subject… The thing is we are not perfect, and churning great articles/recipes so often can be draining sometimes, so taking some time off is good and necessary sometimes, in my opinion. Everyone needs a break ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. I feel ya girl! When I first started, I was posting recipes every Mon, Wed, and Fri, even ones I knew I’d never make again. Now, I won’t post anything unless I can answer ‘yes’ to the question ‘would I make this again?’. You should do a ‘what I ate’ post, I’d love to see a peak at your daily eats, and it’s a great way for readers to tell you they’d like to see a particular recipe. Just a thought! xo
