5 tips to stay healthy while traveling + Hawaii recap

Around New Years, my parents, brother, husband and I went to Hawaii {specifically Oahu and Maui}. It was the best Christmas gift, and I think I am hooked on giving experiences and creating memories instead of gifts now! We spent the first few days in Oahu which included time on the beach and visiting Pearl Harbor. It was surreal seeing that memorial in person. After our time in Oahu, we flew to Maui to spend a few days. While there, we spent more time relaxing on the beach, took a road trip to Hana and were able to take a boat out to see some whales that spend their winter in the Hawaiian waters. One of my favorite nights was when we went to eat at Mama’s Fish House. Known as one of the top restaurants in the U.S., Mama’s Fish House is known for using all fresh and local ingredients. In fact, local fisherman provide the seafood that customers eat daily and even the local farmers provide the coffee beans that the restaurant serves. My meal was one of the best I have ever eaten! For a few additional pictures from our time in Maui, take a look at our instagram (link on the right side of the home page). We had an incredible time, and it was hard to break free from shorts and flip flops once we were back.

Following a healthy diet while traveling can be extremely difficult if you are not prepared with the right tools! There are a few key things I have learned over the past few years that allow for me to balance healthy eating with a few splurges that always come with traveling!

Spaghetti Squash with Sun-dried Tomato Pesto

After many months of planning, my husband and I traveled to France and Italy in early September. My husband had visited a few of the cities we were going to before, but it was my first time going. We had a few priorities while we were there, and I’m sure you can guess what one of mine was… enjoy the local cuisine! And, we did!

In addition, we did a TON of walking which kept us active and healthy on our extended trip. One of our favorite walks was in Cinque Terre between two of the villages. It was breathtaking.
