Ooh La La! 7 Nights of (Fit) French Food

By , SparkPeople Blogger
While a trip to Paris might not in be the budget, a few French-themed meals likely are. Put some Edith Piaf on the stereo, pour a glass of wine, and whip of one of these dinners worthy of a fancy bistro--but with less fat and fewer calories. (And this meal plan comes just in time for Bastille Day tomorrow!)

I love the theme based menu - would have loved a vegetarian recipe thrown in though ;/ Report
As a french, I would totally add a great recipe of Pot-au-feu, which is a very healthy dish, with lots of veggies.
These recipes are great ! Report
When I last visited France, I enjoyed local cuisine seeking out prix fix meals, rather than wasting calories on American chains. Report
Love the country (from the UK so next door essentially) but hate the cuisine! I'm a vegetarian and always find it impossible to eat there! The only dish I can have here is ratouille, which is okay dish but nothing brilliant. Report

I loved this idea. Next weeks menu is already planned, so I wanted to add these to the week following, but the add to the menu planner only went to 7/21. Report
If you'd like to travel, going to Paris isn't in your budget, but Winnipeg, MB, Canada is, then come during the summer and visit Folkarama. A great way to visit not just Paris, but other places you'd love to visit but may not able to afford to go (or don't have time). Many cultures, food, dancing, etc all in a 2 week span.

There is a Brazilian, Caribbean, Chilean, Japanese, Russian, Irish, Greek, and many more to check out. I've gone a few times, you can check it out with your family, or there is a bus tour. Get to check out 3 pavilians in one night. Report
the recipes seem ok, but do you have the recipe for what i guess sandwich
the lady in the Picture is eating? Because that sandwich looks really, really good. Report
If you're in southeast Wisconsin, get to Milwaukee for the Bastille Days celebration this weekend! Report
In the article it said... "Click here or on the image to view the whole calendar at full size, save, download, or print it! You can also share it on Facebook or Twitter. We think it's quite "pinnable" for all you Pinterest addicts out there."

I couldn't find a "pin" button after clicking on the calendar. :-( Report

Sorry too much GARLIC for me (food allergies). Report

Clever idea! Cheaper (and much less of hassle) than travelling. This could/should become a trend. Report
What a great idea ! Maybe a person can't afford to travel to Paris to enjoy the food, so why not create a little bit of Paris, Rome or Madrid here with some local recipes ?
I would include a nice crepe recipe ! Report
