Vegetables?

Do Americans even eat vegetables?

I have received this question a surprising number of times since moving to France, most recently last night from a curious friend over dinner. I replied sincerely – that we live off a complete diet of coca-cola, McDonald’s cheeseburgers, and fries.

Honestly though, it’s been my experience that people in New England eat more vegetables than those in Northwest France. Most meals here include a surprising amount of meat, potatoes, crème fraîche, and cheese.

Often in delicious crêpe or galette form.
