French Women Don’t Get Fat
by Mireille Guiliano
I loved this book, and so have all the friends I have passed it on to. Mireille is president and CEO of Clicquot Inc., so perhaps it comes as no surprise that she enjoys, and also recommends, champagne as an accompaniment to most meals! While we may not agree, and are certainly unlikely to aspire to this, all her other suggestions make perfect sense.
Mireille loves food, as do most French women, but the keys to good food are freshness and quality. When she extols in detail the virtues of fresh produce from local markets you can almost taste and smell the lushness. If you need to change the way you eat, this book is an excellent, light-hearted way to learn how to enjoy food and stay slim and healthy
