If there’s one thing that almost everyone loves, it’s food. What’s not to love about it? It not only provides sustenance for our bodies but also gives us comfort when we need it.
Imagine you’re a young adult living in a posh accommodation for students and away from your parents’ home cooking. The mere photo of a warm shepherd’s pie or lamb chops is enough to give you that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you share a meal with your folks back home.
And sometimes just looking at those photos is enough to remind you of the smell, taste, and texture of foods that you miss or would love to try. Instagram is chock-full of food photography brought to you by some of the top food influencers on all social media platforms.
