Gorgeous Gourmet

Editor's Note: While Zola is in the north woods reading spy novels and drinking Chardonnay, let's enjoy this oldie-but-goodie from September 2012.

The words gorgeous and gourmet do not have to be mutually exclusive concepts.

So many people jump to the conclusion that if you’re going to eat what is categorized as gourmet food you’re going to get fat. If you get too fat you’re no longer considered good looking and therefore not gorgeous.

I say “Oh Contraire!”

It is possible to eat gourmet food and keep your figure intact. You just have to eat the right stuff. You can even eat gourmet and lose weight.

Gourmet food, by definition, involves high quality ingredients, maybe exotic ingredients, and involves skilled preparation of the food. Is the word fattening in here anywhere? Nope.
