There is a popular book I read a while back called “French Women dont Get Fat” by Mireille’s Guiliano. This book talks a lot about the cultural differences in the way that the French and Americans view food, and the rituals surrounding eating. It is a good read, and one that will hopefully make some of you think about your own relationship with food and eating. The main crux of the book is that eating should be a celebration, each meal to be savored- the freshest ingrediants, a beautiful presentation, and taking the time to really enjoy what is on your plate. For many Americans, dinner is drive through fast food on the way to the next event.
Food for thought?
