Can you guess what we had for breakfast every day while in Paris?
Our hotel had a nice, simple breakfast buffet, as well as a hostess who would offer tea, coffee or hot chocolate, flavored or plain yogurt, sandwich meats and cheeses and a basket of breads.
Wherever we went, the French breakfast always consisted of croissants and baguettes served with jam and butter.
While touring the city, we would see people rushing down the street or on the metro with a big baguette in hand, sometimes plain, sometimes filled with meats and cheeses, always eating on the go.
I came across an article on the blog Almost Fit entitled The French Tradition - Give Us Our Daily Baguette that was quite interesting. So many people think if they give up bread, they will lose weight. From what we saw, the French people didn't seem to have a problem with weight. It must have something to do with all that walking.
Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. Every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it. ~Soren Kierkegaard
Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday in your corner of the world. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy
