Gratuitous tips for the weight-conscious gourmand


1. There is nothing soft, about so-called soft drinks; Nothing soft about their deleterious effects on the body electric or their disease causing chemicals.

2. Sugary beverages are the the fast food industry’s anti-freeze – the masque of choice for people who would use sugar to conceal poison. The sugary Coke, Pepsi, Fanta, and the endless list of fizzy drinks, effectively mask the fatty schlock the fast food industry hawks under cover of taste, convenience and value. Try the seven dollar burger with a glass of ice-cold water. If it does not hold its own, throw it in the trash. This leads us to gourmand truism number one: Any food that cannot stand by itself without the ministrations of a sugary monstrosity isn’t worth your money. (Truisms of the Peripatetic Gourmand)

3. Our tragedy is that we have forgotten just how good water tastes, from ice-cold stylings of a refrigerated glass to the earthy intimations of water from an alpine lake. There are men who swear by water’s variegated splendors.  And yes,  the less we drink water, the more we forget of its unadorned splendors. Water tastes glorious to the schooled palate. And as invisible light is the foundation of all seeing, water is the nuanced foundation of all taste and taste sensation. It is to taste what a clear prism is to seeing.

When we forget the sensation of water, un-encumbered by the superficial additions of sugar and or salt, we shift the entire baseline of taste and blunt our perceptions of its permutations.

Gourmand truism number two: The more you drink water, the more you whet your appetite for it. Your perceptions of tastes are relatively sharpened. (Truisms of the Peripatetic Gourmand)
