Less is More

Okay, I'm kind of on an éclair kick...bear with me.  I thought this story was so funny about a French pastry chef seeing an "eclair" while visiting Costco.  I tried to make my pastries to French specs, but they are probably still a bit on the large size.  For fun, I bought an eclair from a bakery here in Virginia.  Here they are, side by side...

A while back I read the book French Women Don't Get Fat.  If you have considered reading it, you can save yourself some time by looking at the picture above.  It pretty much sums it up: eat delicious, satisfying foods in smaller, but with more quality, quantities.  Aside from the health perspective, sometimes it's fun to splurge, and I think it has more impact in my brain when I eat two or three little sweets vs. eating one monster.  Yum, yum, yum.
