Instagram is food blogger heaven.

Food gurus post their artistically assembled eggs benedict, harvested from organic chickens, topped with a light and pretentious sprinkling of cheese and nestled between two slices of avocado.

Because you’ve got to have the avocado.

And while these amateur cooks give you intense food envy, you can’t help but question if their life is really as perfect as it seems.

I mean come on

So if your kitchen looks like a construction site of food, it's ok.

Everybody else's does too.
