Welcome, Bienvenue, Benvenuto to BrightonYourHealth
BrightonYourHealth is a health, wellness and food blog based in France, written by me, Mary Brighton, an American dietitian nutritionist, who lives in France and travels (and eats as often as she can) in Italy (just next door!).
I hope you will find some valuable articles on good health, healthy recipes, wellness and weight loss tips. Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions. I greatly appreciate your support! If you like what you see, please share the articles with friends and family and subscribe to our newsletter for up-to-date trustworthy health information and articles on France, Italy and America’s Jersey Shore.

This tisane herbal infusion is my submission for the recipe club #RecipeRedux that publishes healthy food and drinks by connecting dietitians/nutritionists from around the globe. My mom told me how mint, when it grows in your garden, takes over and there is no stopping it.

Mint tea is the PERFECT drink after a big meal, and in Morocco, mint tea (combo of mint, real tea and sugar) is drunk all day. Here is the lighter French version. Try it and tell me what you think (or maybe you know it?).
