French cuisine has many healthy ingredients it cooks with. 

  • Red Wine

Consuming this in moderation can actually be very good for you. This drink contains many antioxidants which work to keep your heart in shape. Many soups and dishes have a sauce made of this which you can enjoy knowing it's good for you. 

  • Lentils

Lentils are a huge part of the French cuisine and are high in fiber and vitamins. You can enjoy lentil soup or even just plain lentils that are flavored with olive oil and herbs. 

  • Butter

Butter is often seen as being bad, but that's not true. Butter from grass-fed cows can be very good for you. This is because the cows aren't being filled with hormones and strange diets which can affect the butter you eat.

You can even consider doing special dining tours with kids because they'll be able to see how ingredients are grown and raised in a responsible and natural way. 

Finding edible options you can enjoy here that are good for your health isn't as hard as some might think. Discovering these tasty meal and snack options around here will allow you to discover a side of the cuisine not often seen.
