January Diet

Will you be eating salade today? AND tomorrow?
And perhaps all of January?
Wouldn't it be nice if this month's salades could be Paris take-out from MIYOU?
Or La Cantine at Merci?
MIYOU again - shrimp, quinoa, pomegranate, rocket.
Saumon + salade in St. Germain-en-Lay
I lurve Rose Bakery's mixed salade plate. Not a bad way to make up for all the marshmallows and gingerbread of December.
Is salade des fruits allowed on the January diet?


  1. Ahem...
    that salade des fruits is sitting top a sliver of gateau unless my eyes deceive moi!

  2. Gorgeous looking salads
    would love to find those in NYC

  3. At last, some decent eating proposals! :-)

    Happy New Year dear friend!

  4. No, I didn't start with salads but with an omelette with organic eggs from the new concept: Oh My Coque (ok, it can sounds weird in english).
    It was the training day today but it will officialy opened on friday! I hope you'll have a chance to try once you're back in Paris! Cakes are homemade ;-)

    I wish you a very sweet 2012

  5. yes. many salads ahead for me, as it is lately uncomfortable to be in a sitting position in my jeans. And I am inspired by tall the beauties here.
    I like the pink grapefruit one and now see a reason to buy some quiona!

  6. Your selection of salads in this latest post is so inspirational.
    I look forward to eating a more healthy diet of fresh greens this
    Thank you for the inspiration! Blessings in 2012!

  7. I eat a small side salad every day already, and some meals it's just one big salad, so yes--I'll be eating 'em. These all look great to me! I'm a huge veggies fan. The fruit looks good, too.

    A Very Happy New Year's to you, Carol, and thanks for the beautiful card--it will be hanging here in my midst, trust me...xo

  8. Diet mais tout de même quelques gâteaux..

    Belle année

    If I was to be served salads like these, I wouldn't mind having JUST salad for the entire month! They are all absolutely gorgeous.

  10. Yep, that's my January diet, too. Except the salads I get from Target and Walmart just aren't quite the same as Parisian salades. Sigh. Bonjour salades! (And perhaps just a little gateau on the side. And some of that leftover chocolate. And .....

  11. Nope. Today is still a holiday. Didn't you receive the memo? lol

  12. I'll do French diet... Macarons, coffee, bread...
    Not salad, please ;)

  13. for me French salades aren't a diet

    they're an aesthetic experience in layering

  14. Yes! Salads and even some "juicing,"
    so on those rare occasions when the light hits me in a certain way, I'll
    actually look rather beautiful.
    Well, OK;, maybe just decent.

  15. According to French Women Don't Get Fat they eat cabbage soup when the waistband becomes to snug. In the winter that appeals to me.

  16. Love the Fauchon Pots:) How colorful and beautiful..all the salads.

  17. I would not mind one bit, eating myself through all those wonderful salads! Love how they are being served, in those see-through containers, tres chic.

    I made a very good salad yesterday, with Belgian and with curly endive, radicchio, slices of pears.

  18. And I had Arugela,
    smoked salmon
    roasted beets
    mini turnips
    with a sherry-honey vinegrette

  19. Hmm Carol, could I? Would I? I should!!

    Happy New Years to you and yours!

  20. Salads, starting tomorrow! Veggie ones, fruit ones, fruit with veggies, veggies with seafood, veggies with chicken, veggies with goat cheese, but not pasta ones, until Februrary!
    Happy Delicous Nutricious New Year!

  21. Ugh, starting that tomorrow when I also start my workout routine - Zumba and shadow kick boxing.
    Need to get my pre-holiday figure back before graduation this June!
    You've offered some delicious diet options though!

  22. Carol, your salade photos and the prior commenters are inspiring me to compose some salades myself before the end of January.

    Thank you for the inspiration.

    (I continue to keep my metabolism running with all the exercise I get at the shop. Lots of territory to cover, and multiples of up and down stairs.)

    Happy New Year!

  23. I'm not much of a salad person, but these do look good!
    I guess it must be the layering!

  24. Att: Joyful
    I never saw cabbage soup on the menu anywhere in Paris not once!

    This cabbage soup thing is a fantasy and a bad one at that.
    French women eat well all the time IMHO

  25. je note toutes ces bonnes adresses pour un prochain sejour parisien! bonne année 2012!

  26. i like the look of the one with the beans... yummo!

  27. truly beautiful salads..there is something so right about the french concept of making food a celebration, something you sit down to do..!


Love hearing from you
