Mageons "Let's Eat"

France is a nation filled with rich history and food lovers (just like me). It has taken many years for the French to perfect their cuisine, with each generation adding something new to the mix. Getting better and brilliant each time.

During a seminar I attended at school I have learned many interesting facts about French food culture. For instance, food is to be enjoyed and savored, usually taking 1 to 2 hours long to eat lunch. Totally contradicting the idea of fast food. I personally love the idea of actually sitting and enjoying a meal because it gives you time to relax and regain your thoughts, which is very crucial when being a hard-working and motivated Junior in high school and to eat great food - no matter how simple - is one of life's greatest pleasures, so we should always have time to appreciate it. In addition, actually sitting and taking time to eat, you tend to eat less. This is because it takes about 15 minutes for your brain to get the message that your stomach is full, which means eating slowly makes it more likely you’ll stop at a point where you’re “satisfied” as opposed to “stuffed”. In result, you'll be eating much healthier.

All in all, I believe people can learn a few things from France. Some of their food habits and culture can be very beneficial to our health. The Paris Market Walk would be the most relevant walk to show some of the French food life.
