My husband and I will be going to France for two weeks at the end of
September. One week we will be with a tour group bicycling every day and
eating with the group. The other week we will be on our own. Before I was
ff, I always stayed pretty much with cooked-to-death meat and bread on
vacations because I seem to be very prone to stomach problems when I travel.
Now, I find that most of my problems come from fatty foods, but I still
worry about raw foods. (I should point out that I am definitely a
hypochondriac.) Anyway, how do I adjust my new eating style to food in
France? I speak a little French, but not enough to carry on a detailed
discussion of fat-free cooking, and also don't want to seem like an Ugly
American. I'm veggie at home, but will eat meat out if it's the lowest-fat
alternative on a menu. Any suggestions would be welcome.
