So, that french thing… Anytime I talk about being healthy (like these last days, trying to go without sugar) or exercise, at some point someone always tells me to stop becoming so American and stay a little bit French, relax and have a glass of wine.
It’s interesting, because I think it’s a misconception that all that French women do is to “relax and have a glass of wine”. They’re actually as concerned with their health as any other women, and sometimes as obsessive. A few cultural factors help, like regular meals and cooking at home are more of a thing, food quality is slightly different, but overall, we talk about our abs and our tights too. There is actually a real and exciting health movement in France as well!.
So don’t worry, I’m still very French but I also really like my newer American influences. And trying to be a little more healthy doesn’t mean that I’m becoming a health nut. It’s all about finding balance and allowing ourselves to change and evolve, in America or in France, no? .
Also, thank you for all your encouragement to all the international “health nuts”, I’ve been learning so much from your comments! #healthychoices #justtryingtobemyself
