My French is non-existent, but I'm pretty sure it means "crunchy lady". In reality it is a grilled ham and cheese sandwich, with a fried egg on top. It is supposed to be nice French cheese, like Gruyere. But really any cheese works.
When we returned from the trip, I got to thinking that the sandwich can actually FIT the Belly Fat Cure! Cheese, check. Ham, check. Egg, check. Bread...hmmm. Actually with the right bread this does work. I prefer Alvarada St Bakery Essential Flaxseed bread, which I get at Trader Joe's.
To make one yourself, make a sandwich of your favorite cheese and ham (or turkey). Lightly butter the outside of the bread and grill. Separately, make a sideside up egg, and slide on top of your sandwich when cooked how you like it. A slightly runny yoke is how I like it. Serve it hot and eat with a knife and fork, with maybe a little side salad.
If you don't have a Trader Joe's near by, or your local store doesn't carry this exact bread don't worry. I have a whole list of other breads that work great on Jorge Cruise's plan! I am sure you local store carries one of them, or at least something with similar carbohydrates and sugar. If you find a new bread that fits the plan, leave a comment and let me know!
Grace Potter's Paris (Ooh la la) is one of my favorite run songs - if nobody else is around I sing it out loud on the trail and run a little faster. It's a good song to play as you grilled up your own Crunchy Lady.
