The End

Slice of heaven. Had the other half for breakfast

It's the end, folks!

The goal of this project was to blog everything I ate and the cost of food and drinks for a full year. The year is now over, so it's time to put down my camera. I wanted to take some time before writing a conclusion to this adventure. I was not easy, but I did have lots of fun.

  • I took 3366 pictures
  • I spent 10 295.92 $ on food and drinks
  • I forgot my camera at home about seven times, sometimes asking friends to take pictures for me.
  • I got asked "why do you do this?" at least twice a year.
  • I learned how to take pictures without annoying others. It's all about stealth.
  • I almost quit about five times. But I never gave up.
  • I realised that I drink way, way too much Diet Coke.
  • I figured out that I don't go out as much as I tought I did, but that I spend more money that I tought I did when I do.
  • I found out that 60% of the broccoli I purchase ends up in the garbage bin.
  • I saw that I like peanut butter on toast a lot.
I also gained a lot of weight. I guess I wanted to produce more content and so ate more than I usualy do - and I have a big appetite to start with. So now I have to lose that poundage. Bah! Oh well.

So what next? I don't know yet. But I still take pictures of food and post them on my Flickr account. And I love to eat and explore. So follow me on Twitter and find out about my next project when it goes live. I promise it will be delicious.


  1. I enjoyed this journey.
    Thanks Eve, good job!

  2. It was a pretty cool project, Eve. To document everything you ate for a year. I suppose it did have some benefits and some downsides. You did find out more about your eating habits and what you'd like to possibly change. On the downside you mentioned you gained a bit of weight. I suppose that can be remedied with a bit of work (exercise and change of diet).

    Anyway, thanks for sharing. Take care ^____^

  3. Hi Eve.
    I'm currently going a research project on food blogs, their reach and impact.
    Can you get in contact with me at eric.martineau@ymail.com. I would have a couple questions to ask you.
