Many expats come from a culture of eating extremes: complete deprivation or total gluttony; often swinging from one extreme to the other and from one week to the next. So many of us endlessly cycle between good intentions, diets, deprivation, failure, gluttony, shame, body hatred and guilt.
Recently, some very major changes have occurred in my life that has called into question where I live, who I am and who I love. In short, it has turned my life completely upside down.
If you are reading this now, I’m going to make the safe assumption that you’re human. And since you’re human I know that you too have been through times that leave you feeling like your head and heart are spinning out of control.
So I know that you feel me on this.
The third issue of the Expatriates magazine is now out. I have the pleasure of being a contributing writer and their nutrition in Paris expert; and I’m sharing with you guys my latest article below. I hope you enjoy it!
The hard truth is that if you can’t cook, you’re going to find it pretty hard to reach and maintain the kind of vibrant, energised and healthy body you aspire to. But if you’re reading this now, and are thinking “well that sucks, because I’m a horrible cook- I wouldn’t know what to do with an aubergine if it hit me on the head”, then pay close attention, because this article is for you.
So it’s no surprise that when I found myself with an aubergine, half a mango, and some cucumber as base ingredients for lunch last Sunday, I went Asian.
I love exploring restaurants in Paris. Especially the healthy ones. And the vegetarian ones too. It’s this love of restaurant exploration that led me to discover Soya Cantine Bio, a little vegetarian restaurant located just east of the metro stop- Republic.
After a meeting I had a couple of months ago in the city, I found myself without lunch date plans and feeling rather hungry. While some people might shy away from dining alone, as long as I have a good book or my iPad (which is full of books), then I’ve got all the company I need.
Hurrah! The second issue of the Expatriates magazine is now out. I have the pleasure of being a contributing writer and their nutrition in Paris expert; and I’m sharing with you guys my latest article below. I hope you enjoy it!
Most people hate that overwhelming bloated feeling that inevitably comes after overindulging at a French restaurant. Not just having to loosen the belt by a notch or two, but the way it feels all the life has been sucked out leaving your mind and body feeling like it would lose in a race against an overturned jar of molasses.
