I finally finished reading French Women Don't Get Fat. Actually, I finished it about a week ago, and I loved it so much, that I went through it a second time. I got even more out of on the second go-through.
I've tried a couple of the recipes found in the book. They are delicious! My favorite (so far, at least) is the Cauliflower Gratin. Yummmmmmmmm! Have several more on my list to try as soon as I get a few days off. I've also been trying to take food from home on my trips. It's not easy to do, but I've been making the effort. It's paid off, both in better nutrition and better tasting food.
Another practice that I've incorporated into my life is to have a glass or two of wine daily. I love wine, so this is not a big sacrifice for me. It's amazing how the simple act of adding wine to a meal changes the experience from eating to dining. That, I believe, is the whole point.
Now, I just need to work on adding chocolate into my daily routine.
