Tortoises Eating Tiny Pancakes

tortoises-pancakes

Pancakes should be available to all walks of life… regardless of how slow-moving they are. BuzzFeedBlue agrees, and recently whipped up a short stack for a few sulcata tortoises.

The result is absolute adorableness, and is even a bit hypnotizing to watch. Accept for the tortoise who doesn’t partake in the pancakes. He must’ve went looking for the tiny butter and syrup. Please watch this…

The Food Pyramid was created for a reason. And, that reason is to make you feel bad about your food choices. Thankfully, Someecards got real, and created Brutally Honest Food Pyramids For Every Stage of Adulthood.

So, in case you just can’t squeeze in your 2-3 servings of dairy, or 3-5 of veggies, just be honest with yourself and follow these.

Artist Creates Plaster Versions of Everything He’s Eaten Over The Past Year

foodchain

What appears to be nothing more than an exercise in minimalist food art, is actually a pretty intense project by Israeli-Dutch artist Itamar Gilboa.

The Food Chain Project is a pop-up art installation, that is not only an extensive collection of food and drinks sculpted in plaster, but is representative of everything the artist had consumed over a period of 365 days.

Over 8,000 items are represented in stark white, and is meant to call attention to global food issues. All of the food items are on sale, with proceeds donated to organizations such as FairFood International and Youth Food Movement.

An Anamorphic Sculpture of Big Ben Made From Biscuits and Chocolate

Look, kids… Big Ben, Parliament! However, this Big Ben is not what it seems. Sugar artist Michelle Wibowo, of Michelle Sugar Art, created what’s being called the first anamorphic food art, with Big Ben Made From Biscuits and Chocolate.

Viewed from the side, several British landmarks are represented in confectionaries. However, when looking at the sculpture through the provided frame, they all come together to create the unmistakable clock tower.

The sculpture was created for the ‘Unexpected Cooking’ event at the Aéroville Shopping Centre in Paris. Great, if you can get left.
