Forgoing the dictionary

If you’re in doubt about the spelling of a word, look it up! That’s my advice to the writer of this excerpt from Yahoo! Shine:

Although forego is a variant of forgo, I wish the writer had used the latter. Foregoing can mean “previous or preceding.” I think forgoing, which means “abstaining from,” would have been a better choice. As for au naturale, it’s simply a misspelling of au naturel.

What do you think?
