Healthy brands in France- Natsu Foods

I’ve been on a sushi kick lately. It came out of nowhere, and anyone who knows me knows I go through phases of loving a certain food, eating it nonstop for about two weeks and then getting sick of it and not eating it again for a year or more. But it looks like my sushi obsession is here to stay.

Problem?

Grocery store sushi isn’t super common in France, and if I can find it, it’s not always good. Flash forward to a few weeks ago when I was strolling past the fish section of my local Super U, and to my surprise, I came across a new-to-me brand of sushi from Natsu Foods. I bought two packs of it and LOVED IT. When I finished my last piece, I was curious and went to Natsu Foods’ website. I found out they make more than just sushi including all kinds of healthy salads, lunch pots and more. So over the past couple of weeks, I’ve happily sampled a variety of Natsu products and am sharing my thoughts here.

Here’s more on Natsu Foods and why I think it’s a brand you should check out.

When living in France starts messing with your English

If you’re anything like me, after living in a country where English isn’t the native language, you’ll start to a notice a phenomenon that I like to call “WTF is going on!?” You’ll notice yourself searching for words that were once at the tip of your tongue, second-guessing your spelling and experiencing somewhat frequent brain farts.

Quirks you notice about your French husband

french husband quirks

For anyone out there who might be a new reader here, my husband is French. His name is Tom and he’s lived in France his entire life. Although he has a French passport, I surprisingly don’t think of him as French. What do I mean by that? Just that I don’t think of him as “the French dude I married.” He speaks perfect English, gets American culture, enjoys American shows and just fits in with everyone back home. He’s not a foreigner in my mind. I just think of him as Tom and not any different than me. Over the years, I think I’ve Americanized him and he’s always had an interest in learning English, watching American TV shows and visiting my homeland — Tom is more like a regular ol’ American with a funny accent. But, and then of course there’s a but, a little quirk emerges that clearly crosses him over into French territory.

What kind of French quirks am I talking about?
