Do You Like Bread?

October 12, 2011

I spent the morning over at the bakery doing a photo shoot for some images we can use in ads and things. Despite the rainy day, the bakery’s awesome natural light was perfect for the shoot.

GreatHarvestBread

The best part was eating the props for lunch!! Too bad I left that board of sweets there for the customers..

We just debuted our homemade pimento cheese sandwich – which features spiced pecans and a spicy plum chutney. SO GOOD! I brought the sandwich home (since the shoot was held mid-morning) and heated it in the oven.

Served with a pile of grapes and a mug of tea!

It was weird just eating my lunch instead of having to photograph it a second time! I figured I could just use these photos I had just taken – so convenient!

Due to the shoot, yoga has not occurred yet. Please encourage me. Going to check my closets for some hiding willpower…

I always like to think that I’ll never regret going to yoga. It’s getting there that’s the hard part, but once I’m there, it’s totally worth it. You’ll feel fabulous afterwards. :D

Lovely pics!!

Answer: no, I do not like bread and rarely eat it. Doesnt stop me from coming here for some reason, though! Icy plum chutney sounds really interesting.

You can always use a nice loaf of bread as your yoga brick thing. I don’t know what they are called by some of the really into-yoga people have them to help with poses.
That way you can also eat it as you yoga. I think that sound fabulous.

14 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats October 12, 2011 at 12:39 pm

ahhh that sandwich looks so good! and heated in the oven? I should do that… if I have the patience. And just do the yoga! I have the hardest time forcing myself to do workout videos at home. Just change and set up and hopefully momentum will get you going. and remember, in 1 hour, you’ll feel so proud of yourself!

Oh, you know the mental tricks all so well, Kath: Getting to the mat (class, track, etc.) is the difficult part. Tell yourself you can quit after 10 minutes if you get bored. Visualize how good/stretched/decompressed you’ll feel afterwards.

If you aren’t in the mood for a solo (kick-butt) session with Dave Farmer, maybe a yoga class at your gym will align with your afternoon schedule?

Go, Kath!

Before I saw your tweet yesterday about the pimiento cheese I’d forgotten how much I liked my mother’s homemade stuff when I was a kid. Of course, there was mayo and white bread back then. I’d love to be able to taste yours with the spiced nuts and all. Someday…

21 Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl October 12, 2011 at 12:58 pm

Have fun doing yoga! So relaxing, even when you’re holding the downward dog for a while and your start to shake…

How sad that some people out there are afraid of bread. I wanted to lick my screen just looking at your beautiful pictures of these delicious loaves. What is your favorite flavor that you offer at Great Harvest? I would become the crazy bread monster if I ever owned my own bakery. We wouldn’t make any profits as I would end up eating all our inventory. I hope to someday come out and visit your’s :)
Thanks again for the pretty pics

I think for advertising your sweets, you should use close-up photos of the displays in the bakery. Ive seen them on your blog page and they look so nice and tempting! Good luck with holiday prep! It was always my favorite time of the year to be working at GH. Its never too early to start displaying holiday giting ideas!!!!!!! :) :) I love this time of year, can you tell?

Confession: there is a Great Harvest Bread Company in the next town over, and I’ve still never stopped in! I’m definitely going to do that this weekend! Did you go to yoga? I’m doing spinning after work, and as my spin instructor always says, the hardest part is getting there! ;) It’s definitely harder to workout on a rainy day though!

62 Dani Delicatessen October 12, 2011 at 2:44 pm

You can do your yoga in an effort to impress me, as I find it super difficult to practice yoga of any quality in a out-of-class setting. As a result you will also have inspired me to try harder to do it myself!

I want a Savannah bar SO BAD! I have actually looked all over the internet for fruit bar recipes and have tried three different recipes trying to find something that tastes as good as the Savannah bar looks. The ones I made were great, but I’m still looking. To bad there isn’t a GH near me.

Also, the GH bread looks sooooo soft! I bake bread at home (just learned this year) and I can never get my bread that soft-looking. My crusty bread is really good, though.

Honestly, I will never really “get” the whole healthy living blog concept of photographing & documenting everything one eats, but gosh you are good at making food look appetizing.
