Legal Seafoods' Food Porn

Here I go stealing again. This time from the Center for Science in the Public Interest - perhaps my favourite group of non-profit nutritional advocates.

They've coined a term in their fantastic newsletter Nutrition Action. The term is Food Porn. It refers to foods that may well be enjoyable and tasty delicious, but either from a nutritional or a calorie perspective...not so hot.

It's going to be a new periodic feature on the blog.

Today's is example was on the menu last night at Legal Seafoods.

It was a special. Surf & Turf for two. Wanna know what was in it?

A 32 ounce steak, a 2.5lb lobster and 2 side dishes of our choice.

My estimated number of calories - 8000, not including drinks or dessert.

Yum?

    Interesting -- there has been a Food Porn community on livejournal for over 4 years now.

  2. Um, but the term Food Porn on the web commonly means Gorgeous Food Photo...there are a bunch of food blogs known particularly for this. I think it's already too late to change the meaning despite it being a decent idea.
