FRANCE...A Dream Comes True!!...continues...(4)
One thing I have learnt from my friend R and the french is that the food is simple but absolutely delicious!!
We visited the fresh markets almost daily and the fruits, vegetables, fish, cheeses, etc. were so fresh. I couldn't believe how sweet the peaches and apricots were. R would buy a bag of apricots and peaches and we would sit in the car and eat them right there with the juices running down our fingers and dripping onto our laps......
Since I have visited the french countryside I started to buy all our fruits and vegetables from local farmers and not in the supermarkets. I have noticed that is is so much cheaper and tastier.
This was our lunch one afternoon.....it was fresh, crispy salad with some left over roast chicken R made us the previous evening and some roasted peppers with créme frâiche, roasted pine nuts and a mustard dressing. We had fresh baguette bread and a selection of cheeses as well. It was so healthy and delicious!
Notice the red peppadews in the salad with mint water........
I will share some more on the food of R and the french next time......I hope this post inspired you to buy from your local farmers and eat more healthy!
