Eating Out - French

Healthy Eating - French

This cuisine is often heavy in eggs, butter, cheese, and creamy sauces and can be difficult for people who are trying to keep fat within reasonable limits, especially if you're planning on eating the French bread.  Many French restaurants also serve some lighter Mediterranean-style items and if you know what to look for, you can actually dine quite healthy.  Try these choices to eat healthier.  Choose:

1.  Consumme and broth-based soups.
2.  Broiled, steamed, or poached seafood and poultry (Order the sauces to be served on the side.)
3.  Seafood and poultry cooked en papillote (steamed in parchment paper).
4.  Chicken or fish Provencal (with tomato sauce);  chicken or fish cooked with tomato-wine sauces.
5.  Seafood or vegetable stews, such as bouillabaisse and ratatouille.
6.  Chicken, beef, and veal stews with wine or tomato sauces.
7.  Steamed vegetables, salads with vinaigrette dressing on the side.

8.  Poached fruits
