The paradox of the Frenchwoman is that she’s gourmand. Although she likes fine cuisine, she also knows how to get back to a normal diet. Therefore, a good feast one evening and back to a balanced diet with lighter meals the next day. The holidays provide a good example. Like everyone, we put on 2 kg but are quickly able to resume our good habits and keep our mythical figure (well, not always). Whatever the case, don’t lose your good habits and eat at least five fruits and vegetables every day…

A balanced diet, The Parisian dream…

  • Time: Monday, 26 February 2018

A well-informed Parisienne is a healthy Parisienne! What are we supposed to be eating these day? What’s actually good for you? What’s not? Trying to decide from women’s magazines can drive you crazy. And scientific magazines aren’t exactly crystal clear either. The Mediterranean diet? High-protein diet? Fat, no fat, low-fat? Sugar, sugar free, sugar substitute? What a headache…

Sbalzi d’umore al cambio di stagione? Vi sentite la testa stanca? Troppo nervosismo da stress? Allora, invece di precipitarvi sul lettino dello psicanalista, fate un salto al laboratorio di analisi più vicino, e portategli un bel campione di urine da esaminare… Se il risultato darà un deficit di uno o più neurotrasmettitori, è possibile ricorrere all’alimentazione, che – se studiata in modo adatto – potrà ricreare uno stato di equilibrio.

The usual bad mood at the change of season? A little mental fatigue? Excessive nervousness from stress? But instead of running to lie down on the psychoanalyst's couch, rush to the nearest analysis laboratory holding a beautiful specimen of urine… Once you find a deficiency of one or more neurotransmitters, it's possible to intervene with the right foods to recreate a state of equilibrium…

Is there a link between food and stress? Yes, it works both ways. What we eat affects our mood, depending on whether we allow ourselves the food we like. And our emotions impact our diet: they suppress our appetite or, conversely, cause us to indulge. Food is a quick fix for relieving tension…

Champs Elysees spiced citrus fruit salad

  • Time: Tuesday, 30 December 2014

A great, seasonal “anti-aging health food” recipe. Growing older inevitably means a progressive functional decline, but we can still limit the damage by paying careful attention to our lifestyle, and part of this means eating right!
Although there may be differing definitions of the ideal diet, there is universal agreement about the primordial importance of plant-based foods. This is not limited to just fruit and veggies, but includes wholegrain products, herbs and spices, olive oil, dark chocolate, and beverages like green tea and red wine.
