Guest Blog: Discover the Magic of Provence

By Nicole Noel, You can find her on Twitter and FB

Van Gogh and Paul Cézanne were just a couple of amazing artists that were inspired by the glorious Provence. The Mediterranean Sea, Cote D’Azur and the Alpes are all the amazing gems of this amazing place. However, gorgeous nature is not the only thing that makes Provence remarkable. This entire region is peppered by the beautiful and charming towns, which are swarming with the vibrant Provençal spirit. Here are some of the places that are worth looking into if you want to feel the Provençal magic.
Verdon Gorge

The Verdon river cuts through limestone, with its beautifully blue waters and end up in the lake Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon. This 25km long gorge promises fun times in the nature. You can go kayaking, hiking and even climbing those amazing limestone cliffs. It is possible to have a boat ride along the river, observing the remarkable cliffs and ending up in a gorgeous artificial lake.

Valensole Plateau

If there is one thing that needs to be said about this lovely plateau, then it is that all that lavender will leave you breathless. The gentle purple haze of Lavender flowers above the green fields and the heavy and soothing scent in the air will follow you everywhere in the Valensole Plateau. This region carries the name “the breadbasket of France”, so make sure you try the pastry and see if it justifies the name.

This American's Eating Habits

"Don't use machines - Become one" -Crossfit NATO
"Don't use machines - Become one" -Crossfit NATO
Some people ask me how I maintain my lean figure and what I eat to fuel my workouts (coffee with coconut oil and heavy cream). Of course, genetics plays a role in my musculature, but genetics has nothing to do with my work ethic in the gym (though I workout a lot less than you probably think) or my discipline in the kitchen. I am constantly experimenting and trying new things to make myself stronger, healthier, and feel better. I do my best to refrain from passing judgement on something until I try it for myself. 

I am amazed at how often people say a diet or lifestyle doesn't work, without ever having tried it. I like to try the different philosophies of eating to see for myself how my body responds, and then apply the principles that work for me. I like to try different foods and those that I enjoy and see the most benefit from, I incorporate into my diet.
