Oui c’est sure France is all about food and Art de Vivre.
Actually, French people know very well how to share food with friends and family, from breakfast to diner, then snacks time or le gouter ou le quatre-heure or l’apero..
So I can hear you… why French are slim ? I really think one secret is that we do not snack between meals. We really do not like to eat or drink while walking or driving. We really sit down ate Cafes, restauants , Bistro, parks…
Spending time with friends and family in France I was happy to see that most people cook from scratch, visit their farmer’s market, and do not eat too much processed food. Panini (Hot Italian Sandwich) is the new craze you can even eat Nutella Panini at many cafes on the beach.
