I'm going to Japan today!!! For the next 10 days, I'll be spending time in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Hiroshima. AHHHHH.


I'm never the kind of person to eat healthily on a vacation. I know I should probably get a salad more often then I do... but also, how am I supposed to pass up a cheeseburger and charcuterie board? 🤔

I was gone for 10 days this time, and definitely ate my fair share of restaurant meals. While each one was great, I was seriously craving some healthy foods when I got home.

Here are the 5 things I do to get back on track after a long vacation.


I had so much fun visiting some friends from college in Charleston last week! I've been wanting to go back to visit friends and go to a Gamecock football game since I graduated, but working at a university (and working on game days most weekends) made it tough to plan a trip. Even though I moved further west this year, it worked out to head back east for a long weekend.

I arrived in Charleston late Thursday night and walked out of the airport to a brick wall of humidity. Seriously, I forgot what it felt like! I had packed a pair of jeans and wore a jacket on the plane... safe to say, both of those items remained in my suitcase all weekend long.

Safe to say, I definitely ate my way through the Holy City. But it was also 100% worth it - everything we ate and drank was amazing! Read on for the #dEATS
