  2. It made some valid points, but the author seemed to have an agenda as well. Some of the healthy living bloggers do spend a lot of time and efforts detailing their lives and meals and I have to wonder if it can become an obsession and not just a hobby or even a job. It’s a gray area. What did you think?

  3. The only blog I follow out of that group is Kath Eats and even then I don’t really read her blog much because she has a script running on her page that shuts down my browser sometimes…LOL
    I thought it was pretty interesting because I never looked at those blogs in that way; perhaps the author had an agenda, but perhaps she is highlighting a real obsessiveness some of these bloggers do have. I mean, it is kinda strange to blog what you eat every day and photograph it. I don’t really follow blogs like that, I prefer blogs that post recipes and such. One thing I did notice though from the article is that all of these bloggers are runners and I have observed in general that people that seem to be obsessive about food/body image tend to be runners (as their main source of activity). It’s not necessarily true, but it is something I’ve observed! I think I’m babbling now.. LOL

    • I’ve noticed the same thing about runners. I’m not a runner (thanks to inheriting my Dad’s bad knees), so I don’t really know that mentality. I don’t follow any of those bloggers either, mainly because I don’t want food to be my life. Obviously I enjoy food and spend more time than some preparing and blogging about it, but I don’t want my day to revolve around meals. Therefore I can’t really relate to people that seem to do that and therefore I’m not drawn to their blogs.

      • I run maybe once, maximum twice a week to maintain some sort of cardiovascular fitness, but it is definitely not my sole source of exercise; I play soccer and my main activity is probably weight training.

        I hear you on not wanting your day to be focused around food and meals; I felt that when I used to compete in bodybuilding. I am soooo glad to be away from that now.

  4. i loveloveloveeee steel cut with cinnamon and apples, topped with a few walnuts for crunch. ohh so delicious. sometimes i put it in the crock pot in the morning (if i have time) and let it blend all together and let the aromas take over my house 🙂 soaking it the night before is a good idea! usually just do that with regular oats but I should try with steel cut
