Soup is a staple in the French diet.  The French hate to waste.  Anything.  What was dinner last night, will likely end up in a rich, bubbling pot of soup today.  Frugality has its benefits.

French women are known for being slender despite all of the butter and wine they consume.  Soup is a little known secret to staying thin.  As a first course, vegetable based soups fill up the stomach before the main course.  Less calories are consumed on the whole of the meal.
