    This is so interesting. In Montreal (Canada), we have a culture of eating out. Like seriously, going to the restaurants is our favorite sport and activity. I think It is really a city-culture thing thou. In average, I think people eats out 3 times a week easily.
    It is fascinating to see how french people eating habits are so different than what is promote here. The discourse we get in Quebec (a state in Canada) is that breakfast is the most important meal that you cannot skip. People usually have very good consistent breakfast, lunch and diner. The relationship people have with food is so diverse. It is all based on culture, environment and history.
    Thank you for you amazing post! I really enjoyed it!

      Hi Mimi! Thanks for commenting, I’m sorry it has taken me so long to respond. Eating out 3 times a week is a lot! That must be so nice but also quite expensive.What type of restaurants do you go to? I think in Australia people eat out quite often, maybe not 3 times a week though. In France it is probably only once a week, if that. Do people snack lots in Canada and have huge meals? I really don’t know anything about food in Canada!

    Excellent tips! I especially think it’s important to remember number six. I try to adhere to that, but it’s nearly impossible to convince my always-hungry fiancé!
