Life Of A Foodie

Food, Stories 20/06/2018 by Isabella Usen

People eat food to stay healthy, that’s because the body needs it right? But for some of us, we ‘live to eat’ and not ‘eat to live’ That’s why we’ve been given the moniker “Foodie”, but I like to refer to my self as an unapologetic Foodie.

Food is fun and having lived in four different states in Nigeria and visited a few cities within and outside the country has indeed broadened my taste palate.

Being a Foodie shouldn’t be confused with being a glutton. A glutton is an excessively greedy, binge eater, whereas a Foodie is a person who appreciates and has interest in food and is not afraid of trying something new and different things every time, you decide whether you like it or not after tasting.

At a buffet, a foodie doesn’t mind trying every food on display in bits, every bored moment is a time to pop something into the mouth, sometimes you eat even when you aren’t hungry, the funny part is most foodies are hardly ever on the big side, thanks to eating food in bits.

For someone like me, food is fun and having lived in four different states in Nigeria and visited a few cities within and outside the country has indeed broadened my taste palate. This is one reason I love to cook. I am particularly glad I grew up in a family that loved to cook and eat and I was equally thought too.

All these and many more made me begin my online food outfit; Just Bella Culinary.

I often tell my friends that cooking is a skill, its an art and a science. At every point, you learn something new and adjust methods. This is why I have four different ways of making stew, and they all taste differently.

With my friends back then in school, even till date, when it comes to planning and organizing our rendezvous and most importantly, the cooking aspect, they pick me without hesitation, I like to believe I am the Martha Stewart of my friends. All these and many more made me begin my online food outfit; Just Bella Culinary. You place your orders and the home cooked food is delivered to you.
