What is it to be a practing foodie?

     Some people practice medicine, some practice law, but as for me, I practice FOOD. I live to Eat. Sleep. Drink. Breathe FOOD. I go to bed excited for breakfast, and at breakfast I am thinking about lunch and dinner. Practicing law involves giving legal advice to clients. Practicing food involves sharing love, passion, and insights on everything about food. Whether it's what kind of food to eat, where to eat, or what to cook... i have something to blog about. I spend more time reading cookbooks than textbooks and Santa was at his best when he left me a kitchen aid under the tree (even though the year of a hundred beanie babies equipped with tag-protectors was damn good too, but we don't talk about that anymore).
     Everything about food inspires me. It is a creative outlet and reduces any type of stress (except when attempting Indian food, I get stressed trying to succeed at making Indian food). My good friend Merriam Webster considers a 'foodie' to be a person having an avid interest in food. For me, 'avid' doesn't even cover it. 
     So for all you food junkies out there (not to be confused with junk foodies)... this is for you! I hope it inspires you, or at least entertains you for some time :)

'When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,' said Piglet at last, 'whats the first thing you say to yourself?'
'Whats for breakfast?' said Pooh. 'What do you say Piglet?'
'I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?' said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
'It's the same thing' he said.
