As French women we have inherited a strong culinary heritage from our family and live by the rule that what you eat defines you. Indeed, the French are known for indulging in delicious food yet maintaining a healthy figure. How is it possible? Freshly cooked ingredients and moderation are key!
But in our busy lives, what does this mean?
- You don’t need to eat seeds and a few grains of quinoa for lunch to maintain a healthy figure. Nope! You can actually enjoy delicious yet healthy meals every day if you cook fresh quality ingredients from scratch and can even indulge in a few “more calorific” treats from time to time. Just remember to eat them with moderation and not too often (it will actually make you enjoy them more).
- Eating delicious and healthy food doesn’t mean you have to spend hours in the kitchen. We’re are actually against the idea that cooking should involve too much effort! We mean, ok, it’s fine to prepare that fancy meal from time to time but on a daily basis we’re all too busy living our lives and we don’t want complicated or lengthy meal preparation to become a burden preventing you from enjoying freshly cooked meals.
- We don’t want to waste your time with Gisele’s kind of recipes that include ingredients you can’t easily find or that will cost you an arm! Healthy food should be affordable to all and we’ll do our best to show you how.
- Last but not least, food is about enjoyment so what you eat should always make you smile and feel good about yourself.
With all the above in mind we’re excited to announce the launch of Foodie Tuesday! Our weekly food post where you’ll find super easy yet healthy recipes to “whoa” your senses and help you maintain a sexy Parisian silhouette as well as fun facts, tips and much much more… so keep reading!
