This year, it’s going to be different. In 2020, we’re all going to work hard, quit those bad habits and be better people in general. And for those of us who travel, this is the time when we resolve to keep our cool in the security line, behave ourselves on the airplane and eat more healthily when we’re away from…

Exercise and physical activity are an essential part of leading a healthy and fit life. Regular physical activity helps you maintain a healthy weight as well as lower your risk of serious diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and more. However, when you’re traveling, your exercise regimen can fall by the wayside – you’d rather make the most of…

Christmas lights at night with decorated Christmas tree.

Christmas will be here before you know it — and by “here,” we mean everywhere!  That said, not every country celebrates this festive winter holiday the same way we do in America.  For instance, although Santa’s red suit and white beard may seem completely inseparable from Christmas to us, some children await their annual gift delivery from an ancient pagan…

Butternut squash wellington on white plate on red table cloth.

Though historians debate the origins of the British classic Beef Wellington, many believe it owes its name to the Duke of Wellington, who famously defeated Napoleon. The English have a long-established tradition of meat dishes baked in pastry, so this iteration is a natural progression. Traditionally made with luxurious beef tenderloin, this vegetarian version utilizes butternut squash and brussels sprouts,…

Newsflash: travel is awesome. (And let’s be honest, that’s not news.) But travel is also expensive. Even if you’re light on your feet, airfare alone can cost hundreds of dollars… and if you’re looking for a posh experience complete with private rooms and maybe a restaurant meal or two, it’s easy to completely eclipse your budget. There are plenty of…

Healthy travel doesn’t start at your boarding call. Here are the most important steps to take long before you pack your bags: 1. Start with a Healthy Gut Yes, I’m talking about the probiotic craze. They can be a lifesaver when you’re traveling to destinations notorious for tummy troubles. But don’t start taking them after your plane touches down. Begin…

This vibrant salad is the ideal way to use up leftover turkey from your Thanksgiving dinner, and its fresh and punchy flavors are the perfect way to lighten up and wake up your taste buds after a rich meal. Fiber and water-rich cabbage helps boost digestion and hydration, and mint eases any stomach upset while helping to lower cholesterol levels.…

As far as true-blue, all-American holidays are concerned, Thanksgiving Day is second only to the Fourth of July — though some of our favorite narratives about its historical precedent might not be entirely accurate.   But whether or not the Pilgrims ate turkey or personally invited the Native Americans to come along, the holiday remains a cherished moment set aside for…

Boats on a beach in thailand.

I frequently refer to Thailand as “Backpacking for Dummies.” You don’t come to Thailand in hopes of ditching the beaten track. You come for the ease. And perhaps the pad Thai.  The first time I ventured to the infamous sandy beaches in the south of The Land of Smiles, I was meeting my boyfriend after months apart. We’d both been…
