15 Tips for How to Eat Healthy on Vacation (and a new Foodie App Edition)

15 Tips for How to Eat Healthy on Vacation | www.thepigandquill.com | #healthy #vacation #traveltipsIs half a thinga jicama a balanced meal? What if I add chile salt? Because that’s what’s going down for breakfast this morning, and since I’m too cheap for therapy, I’m turning to you guys to ask if an intervention is in order. Yesterday it was green juice and pork rinds. No, not for breakfast, who do you think I — yes, 100% completely for breakfast. I mean you can totally drink away chicharrones with parsley juice, yeah? That’s what I thought. So we’re cool then. Healthy as a horse. Thanks guys.

Speaking of health (they call me DJ PiggySmooth), I put together a fun little post for Full Circle this week on How to Eat Healthy When You’re on Vacation. I realize how backwards it is that I’m making health recommendations in the same breath as admitting a Mexican root vegetable addiction, but I know you guys will cut me some slack. Featuring a few sneaky moves that my Momma and I employed during last year’s most epic road trip of Southern eats — plus some good old fashioned common sense — there are a total of 15 tips that’ll help keep things (read: your diet, pooping, all that good stuff) reasonably in check when you’re on the road. That snazzster graphic below offers a super quick snapshot, but be sure to visit Full Circle’s Good Food Life blog for the full deets on each tip.

Oscar Night Special – Best Ensemble: Show-stopping Popcorn (Guest Post!)

Hi folks! So I originally intended to post that lovely and now heavily-(over)hyped Coconut-Pecan Brussels Sprout Salad some time this weekend, and then somehow I convinced my equally foodified cousin, Joel, to draft a guest post in honor of tomorrow’s Oscar night, and BAM! He delivered in record time. See, for Christmas, in addition to … Continue reading
