Instafinds is series featuring stunning photography from the many talented photographers active on instagram.

Just returned from Italy, a country that many would argue has some of the best goddamned food on the planet. And while I would definitely not disagree with such a bold statement, Italian food is unfortunately the least friendly cuisine for me, considering the wealth of allergies and “conditions” I have – heartburn, gastritis, milk allergy and fructose malabsorption, for those of you who might be curious. Still, there is nothing more delightful than mealtime, even for those of us who are a bit limited in our choices. And the only thing better than having a good meal is having a friend (or two or three) tho share it with. So in the spirit of good food and community, as well as slowing down to enjoy it all, here are some of my favorite mealtime-themed instagram finds.

      I am not sure who even started taking top down photos of food, but I love the trend and hope it never dies. It’s been stressful but I am slowly getting a grip on my allergies! And oh no, what happens when you eat them?!

      • Nothing too bad, just a little bit of swelling and itchiness (:

  • Mmm I’m getting hungry just looking at the photos! Italian food is the best, all the pasta and the food and the delicious delicacies. Yummm!

      I am finally starting to get used to my allergies and get a handle on them. I have always had them but they only got really bad in the last year. Now I try to eat deliciously but simply. Hope you had a great lunch lady!

  • This is a right treat for the eyes, better in the mouth though.

      Me too, Sarah. Somehow I never get bored of looking at amazing food and I think it would be awesome to be a food photographer! You can always try your hand at it after uni!

    Oh, so sorry you have these allergies and “conditions”, how wonderful you are nevertheless able to enjoy eating so much! I agree: good meal is even better in company :) But after watching your pictures now I’m really hungry … Have a happy rest of the week.

    • rae

      Thanks Rena. It has been frusturating, becuase I am oftentimes sick, but I still try to eat as well as I can! Hope you are able to enjoy a good meal in good company this week too! Thanks and have a great week as well.

  • Lenya

    All those dishes look so delicious. I am a fan of Italian food, esp the pasta dishes, anyway, so sorry to read about all thse allergies you have, that’s so sad. Happy hump day, Rae.


    • rae

      It has been difficult, but I am finally getting a grasp on my allergies and knowing what I can and cannot eat! Happy belated hump day to you too, Lenya!

  • Oh no, that is no good. I can’t imagine not being able to indulge in Italian cuisine, especially in Italy where I imagine they would be adverse to modifying meals for those with allergies.


    • rae

      It was actually surprisingly okay! I found a gluten free place which had some vegan and veggie options and ate at a great – albiet expensive – restaurant which had amazing salads!

    this made me super hungry!!! :D
