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.
