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.

I bet by now you’ve noticed that strange ingredient though… the avocado. Let me start out by saying that you can’t even taste it – I promise! And there actually is a good, healthy reason why I’ve added it.

A little while ago, I had the absolute pleasure of exploring the Montmartre area of Paris with Diane, the creator of the gorgeous blog, Diane, A Broad who generously offered to photograph me as we went along.
We first met for lunch at one of her favourite hang out spots, Soul Kitchen (more to come on that soon), and then spent the afternoon wandering around and taking photos to help work off our rather delicious lunch.
I have to say, I had the nicest time, laughing our way through some quaint parts of Montmartre I hadn’t ever been to before.
Can your overweight friends cause you to gain fat? Is weight gain and obesity contagious? It might sound a little crazy, but that’s exactly what research is telling us. And what’s more, it appears that the size of your friends can influence your weight even more than your genes and the size of your family members(1,2,3).
But while these results may seem bleak, they may just hold the key to a new and simpler way to lose fat, and help us to keep it off for good.
