Have some new friends coming over? Getting ready for a summer party? Want to impress out-of-towners? Here are some of the cutest food preps to help your snacks and sides break the internet.
By adding edible flowers to your food, you’re doing the gram a favor. I mean LOOK HOW CUTE.
One of my favorite food accounts on instagram is Lori A. Stern (above, below) who uses beautiful, edible, natural ingredients to make all of her deliciously adorable creations. You can pre-order wedding cakes, cookies and other fun foods from her as well for events. Just LOOK AT THESE COOKIES:
Just bake your favorite sugar cookie (Use white flower, as the the lighter backgrounds make these babies *pop*), press some organic flowers to the tops of the cookie and bake. Here are a list of flowers you can use:
^ Superfoods are all the rage right now. Unicorn Superfoods sells colorful packets of super food that are made from blue spirulina, pink pitaya, beetroot and black goji berry, but you can buy powdered superfoods at Whole Foods, too. You can add them to things like smoothies, smoothie bowls, yogurt (pictured below) or anything remotely liquid, really. My favorite is Spirulina! Spirulina has so many health bennies that it’s insane.
HEALTH BENNIES OF SPIRULINA:
- boosts energy
- inhibits the power of many viruses
- helps diminish allergies such as hay fever
- helps reduce blood pressure and cholesterol
- helps control symptoms of ulcerative colitis
- exerts strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects
- helps strengthen the immune system
^ See that edible flower? DOUBLE CUTE.
Pretty self explanatory here: Cut fruit into slices, then use your favorite cookie cutter to create cute shapes of fruit. Big impact, little effort. Perfect for smoothie bowls, fruit bowls, cupcake toppers, etc.
This idea comes from the brain of my boyfriend’s mum, Agata, who is a polish food genius and always makes her beet juice tortellini soup for the holidays, in which I am always moved by the cuteness of.
Which got me thinking…why doesn’t everyone add beetjuice to boring colored things? Like hummus and boiled eggs, two of my most important foods in this life. Just soak the peeled boiled eggs in beetjuice for 24 hours and voila.
Whatayathink? I’d love to see your creations on the gram. Hashtag it #mbtheblog and share the cute.
Sidenote: You know when you have that friend who inspires the crap out of you? I have my best friend Lauren Mahoney to thank for being that very friend. When I’m creatively down, she there to lift me up. She’s inspired me to create this post, as she is the connoisseur of all things adorable. Thank you for inspiring me everyday with your awesomeness, Renna. This ones for you.
