I always try to see if I can combine tasks I am working on. Finishing the weight loss book is important, so I am reinforcing my ideas through action. One of those is to document what you eat through photos.
Since we have a number of domains on the shelf, I dusted off the one we didn’t have an obvious use for and began the Show My Food blog. It simply lists the food I eat on a daily basis with a description.
The workflow goes as follows:
- Food prepared.
- Picture taken with Camera + on the iPhone.
- Picture sent to Picasa with a subject of Ate.
- Blog post created on Show My Food.
Simple and easy. There are a number of steps to iron out and make more efficient, but the tools don’t exist for it, yet. As an example, there should be a WordPress plugin that creates the posts based on Picasa photos.
Show My Food is a simple idea to help personally, so I hope others are encouraged to document what they eat.
