Petit Dejeuner, watercolor, 9" x 11 1/2"
OK, so what's THE PARIS BREAKFASTS DIET you ask?
1st step is get yourself over to Paris for say 5-7 days. Simple right? At least as far as most diets go...
Next step is very pleasent too. During those 5-7 days you want to have a good "Parisien" "petit" dejeuner EVERY DAY. No skipping is allowed on this diet!
The "Parisien" petit dejeuner might also be listed as it is here, A La Francaise. Any number of appealing, seductive menu titles can be used to draw you in. Nevermind, just go for it!I certainly did. Sometimes in the name of research for my Paris Breakfasts readers I had 2-3 so-called petit dejeuners in 1 day. Please appreciate what I go through for you!
While at Dalloyau doing Easter egg research I did double duty and went upstairs for their petit dej'.
Here's another carte / menu for the visiting wannabe "Parisian".Don't be fooled No Parisien in their right mind is gonna eat all this for P.D.
Nevermind that. Stick to your diet!
The last morning of my trip I felt courageous. I sashayed into the Hotel Meurice just for a cup of chocolat chaud nature. This "cup" is more like a very generous soup bowl. Limoge too. The silver pitcher could well serve a table of 10 easily.AND they load up your table with beautiful croissants and confiture/jam as temptation, but more about that later.
As soon as you get home, that's when!
Your petit dejeuner/ petit dej'/BREAKFAST is now going to be PETIT!
1-2 boiled eggs (just the white please)
1 cup of hot chocolate (that's allowed and it can be some hot chocolate you dragged home)
1 chocolate friture if you have any.
All this is eaten enroute to the pool or gym or where ever you go to sweat off all those Paris PDs.
You can save the eggs for AFTER your workout.That's allowed.
I guarantee you, after 1 week you will lose weight, without question!
I am...Ooops I'm late for the pool!
