Hey, Chowhounders-- I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place; over the past year or so I have lost 50 pounds, and as part of that I began paying attention (!) to what I eat, eating more vegetables and not eating anything with 4 legs (cows, pigs, sheep). However, as I began cooking more of what I ate I began to experiment with flavors.
Now I am much more interested in the best food possible, I feel torn between 'healthful food' and 'gourmet food'. How do YOU find your middle ground? And has anyone else felt this division?
