Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays the only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.
Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.
Fast Friday, meals in a hurry with low effort! First up is Creamy Sweet Potato Bake (from Vegan Yum Yum). This is a meal I always make when I don’t know what else to make on a Saturday night. It’s quick, yummy and has a few veggies in it – ticks all the boxes. This sauce is similar to the Hurry-Up Alfredo Sauce in the book and works just as well in this instance. I love this sauce as it’s not overloaded with nutritional yeast and has a freshness to it. #vegan #veganfoodshare #veganmofo
This looks so tasty! I have that book for some years now (and I’m seriously addicted to the Hurry-Up Alfredo Sauce), so I do have to try this recipe.
I actually dislike that animals are harmed by it. I hate it, and I agree that it’s a terrible thing. But guess what, how the fuck else are we going to test our drugs and other products that if left untested could kill us?
